Prostate cancer is personal to Mat. His wife lost her first husband to the disease, and Mat is helping to raise the two boys who lost their father at such a young age.
After racing Boulder, Mat was determined to take his training and desire to drive awareness for the disease to the next level. He put his name in the hat for the 2017 Norseman Xtreme Triathlon in Norway, a highly competitive event that only admits 250 people annually. On his first attempt, he got in. This August, he will represent Team ZERO at one of the most grueling endurance events in the world.
Mat hopes to raise $10,000 for ZERO to help educate men about getting tested and knowing their risks for the disease.
