Sweet treats and Ironman feats will benefit cancer victim

By on July 23, 2014

Sugar Whipped Bakery, Lancaster, who sell unique sweet treats at Lititz Farmers Market and from their distinctive food truck, are for a limited time creating their sought after desserts for a cause.

Sara Martin, a long-time school mate and friend of Sugar Whipped’s proprietor Stephanie Samuel, is fighting a battle with brain cancer.

“Between now and July 27, if you place a special order and mention this post, we will donate 50 percent of your order (to the Martin family),” said Samuel in a recent Facebook post. “In addition, on Saturday morning at Lititz Farmers Market, a portion of all our sales that day will be donated.”

Sugar Whipped specializes in cupcakes, whoopie pies, cake pops and marshmallows. To place an order in advance for pickup at the market on July 26, call 964-8705. Visit sugarwhippedbakery.com to learn more.

Iron(wo)man

Another friend of Sara’s, Lindsay Texter, is going a step beyond &tstr; many steps beyond, in fact &tstr; in an attempt to raise funds for her friend. On July 27, she’ll be competing in the Ironman triathlon in Lake Placid. She’ll swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run 26.2 miles &tstr; in a single day.

“Daunting and terrifying? Not compared to the daily fight my friend Sara is currently facing,” Texter said. “Sara is the real Iron(wo)man here. She is a wife, a mother of three, a daughter, a friend, and a very strong woman battling brain cancer. Each mile on the way to crossing the Ironman finishing line will be spurred on in honor of Sara’s courageous fight to become victorious over this disease.”

Sara Martin and her family reside in Lititz.
