ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: TEAM IMF

EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015

Jennifer Wentzel

THE STORY:

Hello, I'm Jennifer Wentzel and this is my fundraising page for Ironman Arizona 2015!  My partnership with Team IMF is helping me fulfill a huge lifelong goal- completing an IRONMAN triathlon!  This entails a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a full 26.2 mile marathon all in one go.  Since January 2014 I have focused on this goal and with your support I will continue to build towards its completion November 15, 2015!

My love of endurance sports has always driven me to push myself further and further to find out what I can really do.  I have thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, ran marathons, and made it through endless 12-hour shifts as a Trauma ICU Nurse- an endurance sport in and of itself!  Currently I spend anywhere from 10-15 hours a week training for triathlons, putting my heart and soul into becoming a better, stronger and more well-rounded person and athlete.  The sport of triathlon, along with my amazing coach Hillary Biscay, have already given me so much physically, mentally, and emotionally; I'm hoping to use this site and The IRONMAN Foundation to give a little back! 

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 Arizona, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Angels on Patrol, Lucky Dog Rescue and the United Food Bank.  This isn't a fundraiser for me, but for these amazing organizations.  My getting entry to the race is just an awesome after effect of helping raise money!

Thank you for reading my story and thank you in advance for any donation you are willing to make!  Anything helps towards my goal, whether it's $10 or $100, it all makes a difference.  And everyone is invited to join me in Arizona next November to watch me race!  I would love to see you there!
