My name is Justin Wiese and I am very excited to be a part of the Live Uncommon Race Team. God has blessed me with a wonderful family of five: my wife Sara, my son Landon, and my daughters Anna and Katelyn. I am a Physical Education teacher and Junior High Cross Country coach in the Pleasant Valley School district. I have been active in sports all my life such as wrestling, baseball, basketball, track, cross country, sand volleyball, softball and golf. I currently take on many roles in my life including Christian, father, husband, teacher, coach, tiger cub leader, and athlete. In 2013, I accomplished 3 year long goals that I am very proud of: I read the entire bible in one year, I ran 1,000 miles, and I ran my first marathon here in the Quad Cities. My family has been very supportive of me in these endeavors. Also in 2013, I lost my brother Jared to NETS/ Carcinoid Cancer. I am excited to undertake this journey as a Live Uncommon Race Team member in memory of my brother Jared. The donations that I receive in my efforts with the Live Uncommon Race Team will go to The Carcinoid Cancer Awareness Network. Carcinoid Cancer Awareness Network (CCAN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in 2004. Their mission is to intensify awareness of NET & Carcinoid Cancer by providing access to information about NETS, and funding for NET cancer research. For the past 10 years CCAN has provided information and support to NET patients and caregivers through seminars, e-mail, our web site, and toll free phone number 866-850-9555. The phone line is open 7 days a week 9 am - 9 pm EST. The phones are answered by a patient or a caregiver. Thousands of free information packets have been mailed to patients and other interested parties on request. They've provided many support groups worldwide with information, merchandise, awareness items and financial support. CCAN's board & officers are committed to assisting NET patients & to helping find a cure for carcinoid cancer. They field an experienced team focused on quality and are proud to give their time as unpaid volunteers, keeping administrative costs low and allowing most of the funding to go into the programs. For more information go to carcinoidawareness.orgWith your donations CCAN will use 50% on programs to help raise awareness the other 50% will be used to support the University of Iowa NETS cancer research.Thank you for your support as I dedicate my efforts in memory of my brother Jared whose life was taken too early (30 years old) due to NETS/Carcinoid Cancer. Any donation is truly appreciated and will make a difference in someone’s life.
