Friends and Family,
What started out as just a way to lose weight has turned into a passion.
Four years ago I started running 5k's in order to lose weight due to health reasons. Now 4 years later I have successfully finished 7 half Ironmans and 3 marathons. I set a goal for me a while ago to finish my first full Ironman by my 30th Birthday. Well, that time has come my friends and in 2016 I will be the big "3-0".
This next year will be filled with intense training in order to attain this goal. I know with the support of my family nothing is impossible.
I have commited myself to raising $3500 to the Ironman Foundation. This is a foundation that I belive in. They donate to local charities and clubs all over the country. In Tampa Bay alone they have donated to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Tampa FrontRunners, Greater Palm Harbor YMCA, Girl Scouts of West Central FL, the Nonprofit Leadership Center, & Tampa Bay Frameworks/Teens in Action!
Join me in helping raise money for this great foundation.
THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION wrote -
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 nearly twenty nine million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
