BENEFITING: Anna Schindler Foundation
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017
I am a pediatric nurse. I used to work at Sacred Heart Medical Center but now work with an agency that cares for adults and children in their homes. Caring for children is a passion of mine and this is a great opportunity to give back.
I have always wanted to do an IRONMAN but was not sure I could handle the training schedule so I thought I would start with IM CDA 70.3. This by far, will be the hardest challenge I have ever taken on and now that I am raising money for the Anna Schindler Foundation it will take on a special meaning.
Thank you for all your love and support, I will be carrying this with me as I race on June 25th.
The mission of the Anna Schindler Foundation is to support families battling childhood cancer and raise awareness in the Inland Northwest. We fulfill our mission by aiding these families with meals cards while their child is inpatient at the hospital, offsetting grocery, gas, car repair, lodging, living and medical expenses. We have even helped with the cost of burying a child. If a family has a need we will exhaust our efforts to lighten the load so they can focus on the care of their child. It is also a dream of the Anna Schindler Foundation to build temporary housing, Anna’s Homes, for pediatric oncology families from outlying areas who must stay close to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital for treatment.
