BENEFITING: HOMEWARD BOUND

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2014

Jeff Gottschalk

THE STORY:

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"

We don't all grow up in ideal circumstances.

Some don't know when the next meal is coming, some have been abused, some forced into negative and demeaning situations. Negative conditioning leaves people mentally weak, hungry, broke, and HOMELESS.

We can give people on the street some food or money, but will that make a permanent change?

What they need is mentorship, housing, hygene, spiritual guidance, love, food, personal development training and business skill development. This is what Homeward Bound is about. It's about long lasting change for homeless families. It's about building a solid foundation for families in need.

I'm competing in IRONMAN Florida for second chances, for revival, for the families that deserve a chance for personal greatness, and for the greatness of those they'll impact for generations. To learn more about Homeward Bound, you can visit their website: http://www.homewardboundaz.org/

I'm also competing in honor of my father, Robert Gottshalk, who passed away three years ago after a long battle with cancer. My dad was an "IRONMAN" without ever competing in this race. This race has largely been a canvas to paint the legacy that he left and a reminder to us all not to forget the profound effect he had in this world. A legacy that taught lessons of chasing dreams, toughness, persistence, focus, family, love and charity. He had an infectious zest for life. He and my mother have always been generous to the community and philanthropy has always been a core priority for them. This effort stems from my personal desire to help Homeward Bound and to honor the legacy my parents have left for giving back to the community.

Give a little today and know you're creating positive change
