BENEFITING: Anna Schindler Foundation
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2016
My name is Katherine Thrasher and I am competing in the Ironman 70.3 for the Anna Schindler foundation. In this race I will swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, and run 13 miles. I am doing this to raise money for the children and families cared for by the Anna Schindler Foundation. The Foundation is a light and an example of how to truly make a difference. Their constant efforts inspire me to make a positive impact on the lives of these children and their families
94 cents out of every dollar you donate will be given directly to these children and their families. You could help the parents of a sick child live next to the hospital so they can be a constant presence and their child does not have to fight the battle of cancer alone. The Anna Schindler Foundation supports and personally mentors these families all with the help of your donations
I am running this race for the children and in loving honor of my beautiful Aunt, Mary Lynn, who is bravely fighting the battle of cancer for the fourth time. Their incredible strength and perseverance through their incredible pain and struggles give me strength to do what I couldn’t do on my own. I only hope to be more like them. The aches and pains of training are inestimably small compared to the struggle they live through every single day. The chance to lighten their load is such a privilege. Please help me reach my goal and help these families in need. Thank you and may God bless you for your generosity!
