About Kate…. In October of last year, Kate was broadsided by an SUV while riding her bike. She sustained life threatening injuries including broken vertebrae and ribs as well as severe damage to her internal organs and a traumatic brain injury. Her injuries subsequently led to an autonomic disorder with lifelong implications. She faces multiple surgeries and challenges in her future however, her spirit is indomitable and she is an inspiration to everyone around her. In addition to Kate’s inability to work, her mother had to leave her job to help care for her. While health insurance is addressing her medical needs, they are in desperate need with day to day living expenses. 100% of the proceeds from the Purely_Palmar race will go to help offset these expenses.

On Saturday, May 5th, Full Throttle Endurance will host the "The Purely Palmer Indoor Triathlon Charity Relay” for Kate Hammond from our Full Throttle / New Milford family.
It has been my pleasure and honor to know and work with Kate Hammond while she fights through the effects of a life changing bike accident (for more, see “About Kate” below). On Saturday May 5th, the Full Throttle Nation and the New Milford Fitness and Aquatics Club and staff will come together to show support as we race the "The Purely_Palmer Indoor Triathlon" event as a relay TEAMs event. Every area of the Full Throttle / NMFAC family has jumped in to support this awesome relay race for a cause...to support Kate through her recovery.
