After a bout with colon cancer at age 40, Phillip Ham had become a couch potato. In January 2004, he decided to get back in shape. He joined Team In Training (TNT), and with guidance and support from the team, he completed his first century ride in the fall of 2005.
Since then, Phillip has run a marathon and some half marathons and completed numerous triathlons and three century rides. At age 68, he plans on continuing with even more events. His goal is to become the first triple-triple crown winner in Nebraska.
"The real winners are the many victims of leukemia and lymphoma whose lives might be spared because of the money I have helped raise," says Phillip. "I can say that my experience with TNT has been truly life-changing."
