BENEFITING: Anna Schindler Foundation
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE
In 2013, I competed in my first olympic triathalon and three weeks later completed the Coeur d'Alene Ironman. Needless to say I became addicted...
I wanted this training season to have a different focus. I was inspired by Dr. Tom deTar's 2014 fundraising efforts and this year I am raising money for the Anna Schindler foundation.
The mission of the Anna Schindler Foundation is to support families that are battling childhood cancer in the Inland Northwest as well as to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer. They fulfill their mission by aiding these families with meals cards when inpatient at the hospital, offsetting grocery, gas, car repair, and lodging expenses, and even helping with burial costs.
We all have been personally touched by a family member or loved one who has been given a cancer diagnosis. The challenges are immense. The Anna Schindler Foundation is a pivotal organization in helping families deal with the stress of a caring for a child undergoing cancer treatments. Please help ease the burden for these families and patients.
I am representing the Anna Schindler foundation during the following events: Boston Marathon, The Assault on Mt. Mitchell and 70.3 World Championship in Zell Am See, Austria on August 30th, 2015. Please join me for the ride.
