In 2007 my mom did her first triathlon at age 61. Since that time she has completed over 40 races including 3 half Ironman distance events. In 2014 she qualified for Ironman 70.3 World Championships, which she completed, despite being just 6 weeks out from a very rough bike wreck.
I am her son, and her coach. In November 2016 my mom will be toeing the line at Ironman Florida. I asked her if she wanted me there to support her or if she wanted me to race with her. She didn't hesitate and said "Race".
I am raising funds for this through the Ironman Foundation and appreciate any help you'd like to give.
Thanks for considering!
All money raised through the TEAM IMF program will benefit The IRONMAN Foundation, and specifically - the Community Fund Program. This 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 and provide support to the local community. Within those communities,
The IRONMAN Foundation will provide grant funding opportunities to non-profit organizations, while also working with community leaders to identify projects that will benefit the community and provide funding to support those initiatives. The IRONMAN Foundation has provided funding opportunities of over $34 million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
