BENEFITING: Family Promise of Delaware County
EVENT DATE: Aug 21, 2016
Joe and Hilarie Barry are TRI-ing for a cause.
We have felt led to use our love of triathlon as a fundraiser to support the Delaware County branch of Family Promise, a national program that helps homeless families and expectant mothers achieve lasting independence.
We have been blessed with 4 new grandchildren this year. All of our babies are well cared for and able to have all of their needs met by their parents. We are so grateful. But there are families in our community that are struggling. Family Promise in Delaware, Ohio is aware of this and provides a safe place for pregnant women and young families to make a new start. Family Promise is a six bedroom home that supports parents to find jobs and housing within 60 days of entering the facility. Since opening in 2009, they have provided support to 300 families with 500 children.
Please help us support this essential community program as we participate in the Ironman Ohio 70.3 which will take place in Delaware, Ohio on August 21st. We will start the morning with a 1.2 mile swim in Delaware State Park, bike 56 miles through Morrow and Delaware counties, finally parking our bikes in the OWU stadium. Then the fun part begins with a 13.1 mile run through Delaware and then back to OWU stadium.
We appreciate your support. Hilarie and Joe Barry
