Through our STARS Program, we honor the strength and courage of these individuals and their families. With each story, we raise awareness about the struggles associated with childhood cancer and also foster empathy in our triathletes.

But, there is more to Bella’s story. On June 20, 2017, at the age of 11, Bella was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Bella is our Face of the Race this year in Chapel Hill and will be at the May 19 race.
