GLP Founder Scott Lundberg Raising Money and Racing for a Cure for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

In 2010 Scott, then only 49 years old, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He endured eight rounds of chemotherapy, each one on a 21 day cycle that included 5 days in the hospital. The treatment successfully destroyed the cancer when completed in July 2011, but left him severely weakened and with barely any strength.

Before the diagnosis Scott had been an avid marathon runner, and often trained with his wife, Charleen. Together they started Scott on a training program after his chemotherapy, to help him regain strength lost with his cancer treatment. Scott gained a new passion for swimming, biking and running and a new appreciation for what he survived. Amazingly, Scott completed 70.3 mile triathlons in Lake Stevens and Austin in 2013 and the 140.6 mile Canadian Ironman in 2014. Scott is competing in 70.3 mile triathalons in Oceanside, California and Honu, Hawaii in March and May 2015.

Scott is registered for the 140.6 mile Ironman Mont-Tremblant in August 2015 in Quebec, Canada. He is swimming, biking and running to raise money in support of research into non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. All funds raised will go to Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
