RACING FOR HEALTH
Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon
For one weekend each summer, 2,000 of the world’s best triathletes assemble in San Francisco for one of the most infamous and extreme sporting events…the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. In its 29 years as a maximum-security prison, no one ever escaped alive from the menacing shores of Alcatraz. Every year, this popular event draws over 20,000 spectators to see who can accomplish that daunting task.
5K Run for Research
On the second Saturday of every September, more than 400 attendees–medical professionals, brain aneurysm survivors, friends, and families–come together for a dynamic timed 5k Run/Walk followed by a festive afterparty.

Cindy’s family established the Cynthia Lynn Sherwin Chair of Research through the auspices of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation to honor Cindy’s life. These grants specifically fund scientific research directed at the early detection and prevention of brain aneurysms.
