BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: TEAM IMF
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
Thank you for taking the time to consider donating to the Ironman Foundation on my behalf. I have had a secret desire for many years to attempt a full Ironman 140.6. Over the past five years, I have competed in 7 marathons, 1 100-mile ultra marathon and numerous half marathons. This past year I have completed three half Ironman distance races Finishing in 4th overall in one of them and I have run two marathons. Next month I hope to complete Ironman Arizona 140.6.
My family have always been my greatest support and my most excitable fan group. In fact, my wife was the one who pushed me into attempting an Ironman 140.6, because she knew that I would regret it later on if I did not at least attempt it. In making my determination to compete at Ironman Arizona, my wonderful wife, Nicole, encouraged me to add a purpose to my race, rather than just training for and competing. I am honored to train for and race in support of Ironman Foundation, which will benefit the Community Fund Program. This program benefits those in the communities where IRONMAN events are held, by providing charitable support to a variety of local non-profit organizations that recognize citizens in need and provide support to the local community.
During Ironman Arizona I will swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles for a total distance of 140.6 miles, but perhaps the greatest challenge will be to raise funds for programs and charities in need. Please join me in giving back and helping others who are less fortunate. All donations are tax deductible and will be accepted in any amount. Some donation examples include any fixed amount or any per mile amount based on the number of miles I will attempt.
