BENEFITING: Anna Schindler Foundation
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2016
I remember the day that Anna Schindler was diagnosed with cancer. My God daughter Anna, and her family's lives, would be changed for forever. I watched Joe and Polly passionately care for their hurting child, while maintaining daily commitments with the rest of their children and family. I was blessed to be invited as a board member on the Anna Schindler Foundation and soon learned about the daily challenges experienced by families who have a child with cancer. At times I feel so helpless, and wish that I could do more to provide support for the needs of families so they can concentrate on loving their child.
I decided to join the 'Ironman for Anna' team in order to try and raise the much needed money to support the many families. We are also trying to build "Anna's Homes" which will house families that must remain in the area for extended treatment. In addition figured that my time spent training would involve hours alone in prayer. Please help support this most worthy of causes.
