Mygrant Sales Rep to Honor Mother in Ironman Triathlon
June 16, 2009

Mygrant Glass sales representative Lois Marquart of Tacoma, Wash., will participate in an Ironman Triathlon on August 30. Marquart is participating in the triathlon in an effort to earn both awareness and funds for the National Lung Cancer Partnership, as her mother recently passed away from the disease.

Marquart, 60, is no stranger to triathlons. She has competed many times before, but never in an Ironman competition.

"This one is for Mom," says Marquart, who has been training for four months.

In the competition, she will be challenged to swim 2.4 miles; bike for 112 miles; and run a 26.2-mile marathon.

The Ironman Triathlon in which Marquart is competing will be held in Penticton, B.C., and is sponsored by Subaru.
