BENEFITING: Generations Of Hope/ Building Ohana
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE
Twenty years ago, Deborah I made the best decision of our lives, and embraced the God-given gift of our adopted son, Jonathan. He is a most remarkable person, always reaching out for relationship wherever he goes, always teaching us about ourselves, testing our ability to give and receive love, and showing us the joy of simple connection. As a result of years of learning of his unique abilities and his special needs, Building Ohana was born, a non-profit corporation created for the formation of Ohana Village, "a neighborhood where love will live."
OHANA will be a multi-level, mixed-use neighborhood community with an intergenerational and diverse body of residents. Up to 22 percent of the population will be adults affected by a range of developmental and intellectual disabilities, and whose growth, independence, interests and relationships through their lifespan will be addressed as the heart of our community.
We know you have many choices when it comes to your giving dollars and it is my hope that my participation in the Ironman 70.3 at Lake Stevens, WA, August 16th 2015, with a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile half marathon will highlight and frame this request for donations for Building Ohana.
We can't do this by ourselves, please help us to make this a reality.
Charlie & Deborah and Jonathan Finck
