Survive, Thrive & Be Fit: 2019 Survivor-Athletes Recognized & Honored!  Remembering Rosie Buteyn!

Survive, Thrive & Be Fit: 2019 Survivor-Athletes Recognized & Honored! Remembering Rosie Buteyn!

Congratulations to ALL 84 area cancer survivors who participated in Survive, Thrive & Be Fit throughout 2019! Of those 84 survivor-athletes, 44 earned a spot on the 2019 Survive, Thrive & Be Fit Team!

It only requires five points to earn a spot on the Survive, Thrive & Be Fit Team. But, for most team members, five points was only the beginning. Of the 1,925 total activity points accumulated by area cancer patients and survivors, the 44 ST&BF Team Members earned 1,820 of those points averaging a little ever 42 points per team member!

It’s incredibly easy to earn points. Area cancer patients and survivors earn one point for every ST&BF activity that the participate in (Gentle Yoga for Cancer Survivors, Indoor Row Group, Steps to Survivorship, Pickleball Play, Hiking Along the Cancer Journey and more) or by simply recording their daily exercise and activity and submitting monthly Active Survivors of Sheboygan logs where they can earn from 1 to 3 points per month.

Remembering Rosie Buteyn!

We mourn the loss of 2019 ST&BF Team Member Rose Buteyn who passed away on December 5th, 2019. Rose participated in a variety of ST&BF activities, even as her disease progressed, including Gentle Yoga for Cancer Survivors, Indoor Row Group, Steps to Survivorship and the Active Survivors of Sheboygan Activity Logs. Additionally, Rose and her husband Philip were regular attendees at many SCCCF fundraising events (such as the 2019 K-9s for a Cause at Racer’s Hall in Plymouth this past September – photo above). Although she will be missed, she has been and will continue to be an inspiration for many of us who will continue to Survive, Thrive & Be Fit in her honor and memory!
