It was a gorgeous Saturday at the Sarcoma Stomp. So many cancer survivors, cancer patients, and their families and friends were dressed in team colors – Team for London, V4V (Victory 4 Virginia), The Tumornators, just to name a few.. And in the middle of it was Speed For Need, Inc, providing locomotion for three young cancer fighters and Jamie, an inspiring survivor who beat sarcoma 36 years ago. F3 Pitino, F3 Sir Topham Hat, and F3 Scabby had the privilege of driving Jamie, who was diagnosed with a rare form of Sarcoma at a young age and is one of the few who beat it and never looked back. She has been a part of the Sarcoma Stomp in the past but before today she had never participated in the race. Speed For Need, Inc made it possible for her to ride side-by-side with so many people impacted by Sarcoma and cancer in general.
Inclusion is one of SFN’s primary missions. Today the men of F3 Nation provided the means (the speed!) for Jamie and three others to be a part of their race. I was proud to be a part of the team today and I hope we inspired others to be more engaged with the cancer community. Who pushes who?
