Meet Team Sharsheret US Ironman Triathlon Champion Deborah Greenstein
I am a granddaughter of a woman with breast-cancer, a friend of women with breast-cancer, a step-daughter of a woman who died from ovarian cancer, and a woman with her own history of biopsies and breast-cancer scares. Women’s cancers have touched so many people in my life. This year, with the help of Team Sharsheret and in honor of all of those women, I will take on one of the greatest challenges of my life.
I competed in my first triathlon over 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve competed in sprint and Olympic-distance triathlons, as well as everything from 5k’s to trail races on snow, to half-marathons, to bike road races, and everything in between. This summer, I am undertaking my next great challenge to compete in my first US Ironman Championship and on behalf of Team Sharsheret. Training, preparing and completing the race as part of Team Sharsheret makes this endeavor a significantly more meaningful experience.
I hope you will join me in supporting Sharsheret in honor of both the women you love, as well as the women you don’t even know, but who are touched by Sharsheret’s vital programs.
