Racing for a Reason
Triathlete John Barth is racing for a reason. A victim himself of a debilitating disease called Cervical Dystonia (Spasmodic Torticollis), Barth is thankful for a support team that has helped him fight back, while raising money for the cause. Barth along with Team BluFrog has put up a web page dedicated to raise awareness, and garner support for his upcoming September 7 race, where he states:
“During my initial treatment and lifestyle adjustment, at the suggestion of my neurologist and physical therapy team, I began to swim a little and walk a lot. One thing led to another, and the idea of training for triathlons was born as a way to raise money and awareness.”
John Barth is also a very dear friend to Village Plumbing & Homer Services, who has reached out to the VP family in the most loving and unselfish ways. We want to encourage all our friends to root for him, as he races for a reason, and consider helping him achieve his and his team’s fundraising goal. By clicking the NSTA logo you’ll go to John’s TeamBluFrog Races for NSTA page, where you can learn more, and if you feel led to help, there is a Sponsor Me button there. We thank you very much for reading this, and for caring.
