Team Illinois 
It was a wonderful week of competition, celebration of life and honoring donor families.  I met so many amazing people and heard so many beautiful stories, it was truly a privilege to have taken part.  
I am happy to report I won a silver medal in each of the individual events of the triathalon: 500m swim, 20k cycle, 1500m run.  I then won a gold medal for my age group for the triathalon! 
I would like to thank my sister, Beth Anne Hostert, for her hard work and dedication, and all of the wonderful recipients, donors and donor families who supported and encouraged us throughout the week.
