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.
Those who wish to donate to Marquart's cause can do so by clicking
The Ironman Triathlon in which Marquart is competing will be held
in Penticton, B.C., and is sponsored by Subaru.
