Sarah McMillan, long time supporter of FIT TO FIGHT and wife of the late Scott Woods aims to honor her husband by competing in the OSCR nordic race. This January, Sarah will ski 25K to raise money and awareness for the FIT TO FIGHT program. Read Sarah’s story.
My late husband, Scott Woods, had always trusted his body to do what he needed it do, whether that was mountaineering in Pakistan, snowshoeing in Alaska, climbing in France, running marathons in Georgia and Colorado, or backpacking in Montana. But when he was diagnosed with cancer, he lost that trust – until he joined one of the early sessions with Fit to Fight.
This program, developed specifically for cancer patients and survivors and tailored to each participant, returned him to a high level of fitness and strength, and, very importantly, taught him to trust his body again. Through FIT TO FIGHT, Scott regained fitness and was able, while still in treatment, to compete in two triathlons, run the Pengelly Double Dip, trek in Morocco and Peru, hike in his beloved Lake District National Park in the UK and along the Pembrokeshire coastal path in Wales, and climb Mt. Rainier.
In Scott’s honor, I am training to ski the 25 KM loop of the OSCR ski race in Seeley Lake on January 31, 2015, and I am doing it as a fundraiser for FIT TO FIGHT. I hope to raise enough money to sponsor an 8 week FIT TO FIGHT session so that more cancer “thrivers” can reap the same benefits that Scott did.
