Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for JUST TRYAN IT.  

First off, a little bit about me. My name is Mae Rose Cummings and I am 6 years old and live in Arlington, VA. I am in kindergarten. I love my family, school, gymnastics, playing outside with all my neighborhood friends, my American Girl Dolls [Kit and Mary], and American Ninja Warrior. In fact, I  hope to be on America Ninja Warrior one day. 

Prior to having me, my dad used to do triathalons or so he told me! He and his friend created their own fundraising organization. It was called Tri for Ian. Ian was my dad's brother. They would raise money for organizations that helped my Unlce Ian before he passed away. I thought that was super cool. So when my cousin, Luke, told me he has been participating in a triathlon for many years that raises money to help families, I knew this was something that I had to do. I actually pestered my mom everyday for 2 weeks to sign me up. Thank goodness, she finally did. 

Pediatric cancer has not affected our family directly but our family is well aware of the scourge of cancer. My Grandpa C. passed away from melanoma when he was 46. I sadly never got to meet him but my dad and Grandma talk about him so I know he would be proud that I was taking on this challenge and more importantly helping families that need it. 

I am hard at work training. My mom even bought me a new bigger bike for the challenge at hand and with the pool opening soon I am hoping to get in some lap swimming before the big race. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to come to my page. Even if you aren't able to donate please say a little prayer for the kids and their families battling pediatric cancer. They are the ones who have the real challenge ahead and are the true warriors. xoxoxo, Mae
