gregory cho Ironman 2017
Since 2010, I've been participating in the Ironman held in Madison, Wisconsin, a 140.6 mile triathlon composed of a 2.4 mile swim in Lake Monona, a 112 mile bike ride through the rolling meadows of Dane County and 26.2 mile run through the campus of the University of Wisconsin, home of the Badgers!
And since then, I've been privileged to be part of Achilles, an organization with which I have been volunteering that supports physically challenged athletes compete in athletic events, from 5K runs to marathons to the Ironman.
Most important, however, Achilles provides opportunities. It provides an opportunity for an athlete who recently lost his vision to compete in his first triathlon, including a daring open water swim in the seemingly questionable waters of the Hudson River. It provides an opportunity for an athlete having experienced a traumatic brain injury following a major bicycling accident to not only return to biking, but complete his first Ironman and, what is more, win in the physically challenged division! And, it provides an opportunity for a visually impaired novice triathlete to be inspired by all his fellow teammates to register to compete in his own Ironman next summer.
The athleticism, commitment and discipline of the Achilles athletes makes their achievements possible. Your generous support, however, makes these opportunities possible to achieve.
Help me support Achilles and provide opportunities to physically challenged athletes by donating a set amount for each mile of the Ironman.
The following is a reference:
$.25 per mile x 140.6 miles = $35.15
$.50 per mile x 140.6 miles = $70.30
$1.00 per mile x 140.6 miles = $140.60
$7,112.38 per mile x 140.6 miles = $1,000,000.00!!!
