is the founder of Kick Cancer Overboard. He is the owner of Excel Travel in Long Branch, NJ, and has over 30 years of experience in individual and group travel. He is involved with many local organizations and a Paul Harris Fellow with the Greater Long Branch Rotary Club. Ted is a two time recipient of the Spinnaker Award from the Eastern Monmouth Chamber of Commerce, and a recipient of the Osprey Award from the Jersey Shore Chamber of Commerce. After the healthiest people he had ever known (DonnaLyn Giegerich and her husband Tom Zapcic) both got hit by cancer, he saw the same thing happen over and over again, to friends and family, Watching Shark Tank one night, they talked about how in life (and your career) first: you fake it, then: you make it, then: you master it, and then (if you are lucky): you matter - and make a difference. Ted decided it was time to take action and make a difference. He ran his idea by DonnaLyn .... and the rest is history!
