CVID Triathlon Relay
CVID Triathlon Relay For National Primary Immunodeficiency Awareness Month
April 13, 2014, David Brumley and Julie Jolley will team up to race the Playtri King Tut Sprint Triathlon as a way to inspire and encourage those living with Primary Immunodeficiency (PI). Both David and Julie have a rare form of PI called CVID (Common Variable Immune Deficiency). David will complete the swim and bike portion of the race and Julie will finish the triathlon with a 5k run. They will be racing as a TriForBetter team.
This race Is for National Primary Immunodeficiency Awareness Month. King Tut was scheduled to be my first race of the season, but after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in early March, I was looking at having to cancel it. This is an important race to me because it’s right in my backyard and kicks off National PI Awareness Month. After being told that I could still swim and bike, the plan was hatched to do a relay. Julie Jolley, a runner and CrossFit enthusiast, accepted the challenge. The opportunity to race with a fellow athlete that has CVID is both exciting and humbling. She, like many others living with CVID, have good and bad days. Yet, she is committed to actively pursuing better for her life through fitness.
We invite all locals to come out and support us on race morning. [Learn More Here] I especially want to thank the wonderful people of McKinney Allergy and Asthma for their support and the IDF for all their work in the PI community.
