Top fundraiser and friend Linda Burgess on a mission!September 22nd, 2015
Our top fundraiser Linda Burgess is on a mission to help her friend, Kylie Teixeira, kick breast cancer’s butt!
Linda chose to fundraise at Triathlon Pink in support of Kylie who is currently living with this disease, and to help raise much needed funds to find a cure.
“The same week I chose to do the triathlon I found out Kylie had breast cancer,” says Linda. “Kylie is a strong and beautiful woman who has the admiration and support from all of her friends and family as she begins her journey.”
Linda fundraises not only to support her friend, but also for all the people who have come before Kylie, those currently experiencing breast cancer and to others who will inevitably be forced down the same path.
“It’s not the easiest thing in the world to deal with,” says Kylie. “I’m just so grateful. Really, really, grateful.”
Linda raised over $3,000 for life-changing breast cancer research. If you want to run, swim or walk alongside incredible people like Linda and Kylie, join NBCF at Triathlon Pink!
