BENEFITING: EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS FOUNDATION
"Your job is to do well in school and get accepted into the best college for you. EE will make certain that you don’t have to worry about whether you can pay for it.” Exceeding Expectations uses the sport of triathlon to help at-risk inner-city youth realize that through hard work their goals can be reached. They have succeeded in helping students not only be first generation high school graduates, but also helped them go even further to become college graduates as well.
Being an ultra runner without previous triathlon experience, I thought training for an Ironman would be a great way to fundraise for EE. This race is going to require serious dedication and training (especially since I am currently an awful swimmer) to reach the finish line, which is exactly what EE is all about.
If you would like to find out more about Exceeding Expectations, please checkout their website at: http://www.eefoundation.org/index.html
If you would like to follow along with my training, I'll be posting consistently here: https://mountaincatweb.wordpress.com/
If you would like to follow along without having to read an actual blog, I'll be posting here as well: https://www.instagram.com/cat_stadie/
I'm just trying to encourage people to be active and step outside of their comfort zone while raising funds for a great cause. Please support if you can, any size donation helps!
