 Racing For a Reason: 

Swampscott and Marblehead participants were among the 31 members of Team PinkOps in the Spartan Race, Aug 10th. 

The team included: Beth Johnson, Jenifer Whitmore, Justin Dean, Lauren Lombardo, Tricia Rockett, Danielle Jacobs, Michelle Schiowitz, Jay Goldman, Sarah Wattendorf, Sarah McCormack, Evan Comeau and Donna Freddo.

For the past two years, the team has raised over 14 k for the local Sue de Vries Cancer Foundation.  The foundation provides funding for a wellness room at the Mass General North Shore Cancer Center to assist patients with complementary therapies while they go through treatment. Local resident Sara MacNamara started this team in 2012 with one goal in mind, to help fund local charities where the significant amount of their proceeds go directly towards its purpose. Sue de Vries Foundation is a nonprofit, grassroots organization with a completely volunteer board that fits this goal.  Founding board member and yoga teacher Larisa Forman states that in 2012, thanks to the generosity of the supporters, the hospital has provided nearly 800 acupuncture treatments, 280 massages and 190 reiki sessions were provided free of charge to help ease pain and discomfort to those receiving chemotherapy.

Team members had been hard at work managing spin-off fundraising events, collecting individual donations and selling Team PinkOps merchandise, with proceeds going towards this amazing foundation. Beth Johnson, owner of EnergyWithin conducted free Wed night hard core training sessions to prepare.

The Spartan Race is a 5k (3.2 mi) race, comprised of mud runs, obstacles, trail racing, physical challenges and mental challenges.
