Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Back in 2009, I decided to compete in a sprint triathlon with only two weeks to train. With such a short amount of time, I decided to just wing it. I could barely doggie paddle the 400 yard swim, and the bike was all up hill, but I was hooked on the sport.
I continued to compete in different sprint races and decided to challenge myself with a Half Ironman in the spring of 2010. I definitely took on more than I should have. I completed the race, but ended in the medical tent. Not my finest hour.
Since 2010 I have completed another Half Ironman and 2 Ironman races. I still love the sport, but decided I would like to use my passion for racing to help raise money for charity. After the Florida Ironman in 2014, I signed up for Florida Ironman Foundation Team 2015. I have comitted to raise at least $3000. Please help me to reach my goal and to raise money for charities that can use your help. All donations are tax deductible.
Thank you all for donating.
The following is from the Ironman Foundation:
All money raised through the TEAM IMF program will benefit The IRONMAN Foundation, and specifically - 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. Within those communities,
The IRONMAN Foundation will provide grant funding opportunities to non-profit organizations, while also working with community leaders to identify projects that will benefit the community and provide funding to support those initiatives. The IRONMAN Foundation has provided funding opportunities of nearly
twenty nine million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
