Fledgling triathlon runner exceeds expectations for cancer awareness

NEW BERLIN After successfully completing a 70-mile Half-Full Ironman race at a cancer research fundraiser, long distance runner Thomas Lawson has collected $2,655 and is hoping for additional donations before his Nov. 1 deadline.



Lawson competed in the Oct. 3 event in Ellicott City, Maryland to support the Livestrong Foundation and the Ulman Cancer Research Fund.

Lawson created the personal goal of completing his first-ever half Ironman race a year earlier and after accomplishing it in September, he elected to run a second 70-mile race for cancer awareness just three weeks later.

This isnt your ordinary triathlon. The half full triathlon is a 70-mile fight to support young adults affected by cancer, explained Lawson.
