The inspiration for Team “#SunShallShine UK Pharmily” starts with our ultimate motivator, Shane Winstead. Shane has been the beautiful face behind the #SunShallShine “campaign,” which has helped so many of us to see the positive in this world, rather than the negative. Shane was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, but hasn’t let that stop her from being a champion of her own happiness. She has continued to be a bright light to anyone who surrounds her. Many of the team members had the honor of working with Shane at UK HealthCare and benefited from her passion both as a pharmacist and a mentor to young learners. She shows us every day that,

A positive attitude, strong heart, friends, and family can help us tackle any challenge that life may throw at us

.

When the opportunity to sign up for the Ironcology Survive the Night Triathlon came across our radar, our team knew that this was a chance to do the kind of thing that Shane exemplifies every day – to be strong, fight for a cause, enjoy time with family and friends, and simply do GOOD to make us feel GOOD!

We had our team of 9, which is composed of 8 UK HealthCare pharmacists (plus a husband of one), but we were missing a link, literally. We invited Madison Winstead, Shane’s daughter, who will be swimming for UK as a freshman this fall, to join the team to start off our first leg in the water, the very same water that she will soon call “home” in a few short months. Despite the fact that she will be in her “taper” for the Olympic trials coming up in a few short weeks, Madison has pleasantly agreed to be the missing link to our team and symbolically start us off right, and fast, too, by swimming a few laps in the pool! This Ironcology is more than a 140.7 mile workout. To our team, it’s about family, friends, fighting for a cause, and doing something that makes us happy. The sun will truly be shining on this day, and every day.

Thanks, Shane!
