BENEFITING: NAMI SAN FRANCISCO
EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2014
On March 1st, 2014, I will be participating in the toughest challenge of my life, the 30th annual 2014 Ironman New Zealand. The race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and a marathon (140.6 miles total) all of which is to be completed in less than 17 hours. It will be by far the longest triathlon I will have entered and will require every ounce of physical fortitude and mental toughness to complete.
As a way of giving back and for extra incentive to keep me motivated during my training, I have asked friends & family to guess my race finish time for a chance to win one of several prizes in exchange for a donation to the San Francisco chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The mission of NAMI is to advocate for a life of quality and dignity by providing education, resources and emotional support to families and those affected by mental illness. They strive to end discrimination and stigma for all those persons affected by these illnesses through broader education and collaboration with the whole community.
With your support, NAMI can continue to provide free, life-saving education and support programs, raise awareness, combat stigma and provide essential information and resource to many in San Francisco. Please consider partnering with me by donating to NAMI and their worthy cause. My goal is to raise $50 for every mile of the 140.6 mile long Ironman race ($7,030 total). Together, we can make this happen!
