This October I will be competing in my 4th IRONMAN event in Cambridge, Maryland. An IRONMAN event is a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. It is typically regarded as the most challenging endurance event in the world.
I feel blessed to have the basic necessities and beyond in life and to be able to train and compete in this event. So, I have decided to make this IRONMAN journey more than just about me and added a fourth discipline to the event. I have partnered with The IRONMAN Foundation and committed to fundraise at least $3,000 for their Community Fund. In 2014, The IRONMAN Foundation provided $1.2 MILLION (nearly 1,000 grants) back to local nonprofit groups within IRONMAN race communities all over North America.
I can’t do this alone and I need your help. Please donate what you can and know that you will be helping many local organizations in Maryland and beyond to assist those in need.
Please help me reach my goal by making a donation on my personal fundraising website at www.crowdrise.com/garettfig
