On October 10, 2015 I get to live my dream of racing the Ironman World Championship; a dream I've carried since I was 11 years old. I'll do it thinking of my good friends' daughter, Molly Varak, whose life was lost to SIDS when she was just over 4 months old; not even old enough to have dreams of her own much less have the opportunity to see them come true. And, of course, I'll be thinking of my friends Rob and Jean Varak, who saw their dreams shattered when they lost their sweet little girl. You can read more about their story here: http://www.mollyvarakoktoberfest.com/molly-s-story.html
Nothing can change the past, but your donation can impact the future and bring us closer to a day when SIDS is relegated to the history section. All funds raised from this effort will go to SIDS of Illinois vis a vis the Ironman Foundation.
