Congratulations, Teri!! Woman of Achievement (Class of 2014) Teri Griege was asked to share her amazing and inspirational story in a recent TEDx Talks. For those who don't know Teri's story, she is a cancer thriver and speaks to the power of H.O.P.E. in all of life's struggles. She is a mother, wife, multi-sport athlete and survivor.
Two weeks after completing the Ironman Louisville in 2009 she was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer with metastases to her liver. She was not stopped by this diagnosis and continued to train for her dream: the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. With the help of her army of supporters known as Teri’s Troops, she trained for this grueling event while undergoing chemotherapy and crossed the finish line in Kona on October 8, 2011, at age 50.
