Welcome to the fundraising page for Vicki.


Triathlete – N. – A person who does not comprehend that one sport is difficult enough.  Usually type A with an uncontrollable need to train, race and make some amazing friends.

Yes, that is me.  I love this sport and everything about it.  I love coaching, I love training, I love the journey, I love the people and I love the race.  I also gain so much more from it when I can dedicate it to a cause that brings more meaning to the race. 

I started racing 10 years ago in honor of my Mom, Marion Edwards, for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.  She had lost her battle 10 years before to lymphoma and she became my inner strength.  I raced for my mom until my daughter’s friend, Katie, lost her life to leukemia at the young age of 20.  A beautiful soul taken way too young.  A family left wondering why and friends trying to make sense of such a thing.  I raced for Katie and my mom for years. 

I received an email to coach a team called Team Challenge.  While I could not dedicate enough time to being the head coach, I could dedicate enough time to assist.  Team Challenge is the Crohn’s and Collitis Foundation of America’s triathlon team.  Much like the LLS, TC worked the same way.  Raising money for the cause, Team Challenge introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. 

Now I will join forces with R.O.C.K. – Real Options for City Kids and race the infamous Alcatraz Triathlon!!!!  Based in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley. R.O.C.K. helps to provide opportunities to youth who may not otherwise have access.  Through positive development, a combination of in-school and afterschool learning and sports programs, R.O.C.K. has had long term success with the youth that it serves. 

So please, hear my plea.... help me to help R.O.C.K. continue their success with making positive impacts in the lives of children.  There is no donation too big or small.  Here are some examples of where your donation can go...

 - $100 provides 5 middle school participants with new, challenging, outdoor adventure experiences.
- $250 provides 5 children 5 weeks of in school and after school learning enrichment activities.
- $500 provides sports skill development for 6 children at a 6 week Saturday Skill Drills session.
- $1,000 sends 10 kids to a 4 day overnight enrichment camp.

Thank you from R.O.C.K. and as always, from me.  Love and light...Vicki
