ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
My name is Gina Hendrickson and I'm so excited to be raising money for the 2015 Ironman Arizona event.
Years ago I set a goal to complete a full Ironman triathlon before I turn 40 years old. Over the next year I will be focused on training to completing the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run next November. This is a huge commitment and I am up for it.
I have spent the last 15 years of my life dedicated to my three wonderful kids and my husband. I have always pushed myself to be the best mother and wife that I could be. I enjoy pushing myself physically and mentally. This desire has also allowed me to help others reach their fitness goals through personal training and as a fitness instructor.
I ran my first marathon in 2000. I have ran 29 marathons, 10 half marathons and countless shorter races since then. I will run two more marathons before I complete the Ironman in November, 2015. Becoming an Ironman will be the greatest physical accomplishment of my life.
All of your donations go straight to The IRONMAN Foundation's Community Fund Program and benefit the communites where IRONMAN events are held. For this event, your donation will go to charities including Make a Wish, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Angels on Patrol, Lucky Dog Rescue and the United Food Bank. This fundraiser isn't for me, but for these amazing organizations.
Please donate to the IRONMAN Foundation and help these other great charities! Any amount will help me reach my goal. A donation of $10, $20, $100 or more will go along way. It all makes a difference. I will be in Arizona next November to fullfill my dream and enjoy the spirit of competition and giving.
