THE STORY:

Friends, Family and Supporters:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. For those who may or may not know on October 3rd, 2015 I will participate in my first ever Ironman - 2nd annual Ironman Maryland. The race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run (140.6 miles total) all of which is to be completed in less than 17 hours. It will require every ounce of physical endurance and mental toughness to complete.

After talking to a couple of buddies who did this exact race last year, I knew immediately it was something I wanted to do. Become an Ironman?! Am I sure...? It's not a light undertaking by any means. Am I up for the challenge? Absolutely! My motivation is a mixture of self-fulfillment and plain stupidity, but I wanted to leave a much greater legacy and use my Ironman experience to contribute to a good cause. This year I am honored to be part of TEAM IMF (Ironman Foundation). The 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

Here are a couple of highlights of the foundation:

-There are 51 communities in North America that receive IRONMAN Foundation grant funding

-The average grant size donated to local nonprofit organizations at an event - $1,217

- $1.2 million - Grant funding provided to race communities throughout 2014

- $13.5 million - Grant funding provided to local race communities since the inception of the Community Fund Program

In 2014, The Foundation provided grant funding to a broad range of nearly 1,000 organizations located in or near the IRONMAN race communities. $35,000k of this funding went to support non-profit organizations with a volunteerism component in and around Cambridge, Maryland. One of the community grants was awarded to the Dorchester County Family YMCA to support the cost of replacing the ceiling of the organization’s gymnasium. This YMCA was 29 years old, had over 4,000 members, offered over 60 group fitness classes per week, and was the only YMCA in the entire county.

As a way of giving back and for extra incentive to keep me motivated during my training, I have asked friends & family to guess my race finish time for a chance to win one of several prizes in exchange for a donation to the Ironman Foundation. Your encouragement and positive reinforcement will go an incredibly long way in helping me complete this Ironman. EVERY contribution will have an impact, will be acknowledged personally by me, and will be appreciated by so many! My goal is to raise $3,000 – Together we can make this happen. Thank you in advance for your love and support!!
