Friends, Family and Supporters,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. As you now know on October 3rd, 2015 I will participate in my first ever IRONMAN Triathlon - 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. I am at month seven of eight of my training abd have run biked over 100miles at time and ran multiple half-marathans.
So far i haave completed two shorter distance triathlons an Olympic Distance and Half-Iron Distance. I placed first in the Clydesdale division in both races. The Clydesdale division is for those athletes 220lbs and over.
To help reach my goal of completing my first Ironman I have teamed up with the 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. In 2014, The Foundation provided grant funding to a broad range of nearly 1,000 organizations located in or near the IRONMAN race communities (Cambridge, MD for this race).
I would be honored if you would make a contribution to a really good cause and help support my dream. Your support and generosity would be greatly appreciated and will help me in achieving my dream of completing an Ironman.
