THE STORY:

INTREPID FALLEN HEROES FUND wrote - (Updates Below)

TeamExtreme was born of a vision shared by a group of ordinary people with a passion for making a difference in the lives of others. Members of the team are pushing their physical limits in a variety of extreme athletic events to raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which provides services for wounded heroes in uniform.

Our team will participate in some of the most recognized and in many instances, the most challenging events in the world, including major world marathons, Ironman and the toughest ultra-distance events on the planet. The team’s primary signature event, Relay for Heroes, takes place in New York City’s Central Park and supports the mission of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to serve those who have sacrificed so much for our nation.

UPDATE #1 — June 9, 2016
General Update
After riding in Race Across America the last two years (and winning our division both times) we decided to try something different.  From that comes TeamExtreme.  http://www.intrepidteamextreme.com/home    A bunch of men and women who want to help wounded veterans by raising funds for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.  Each of us is doing extreme stuff - for me that means bike races ranging from 25 miles (Greenwich CT) to 100 mile Gran Fondos (NY) to 200 mile RAAM Qualifyer to the 500 mile Silver State 508 with my teammate Hal Goldstein in September.  I love the training, the commeraderie, and the improvements in my riding but most of all I take great pride in our raising $1.3 million for the IFHF over the last two summers.  We ambitiously have a $1 million goal this year so we need your help.  All donations are greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!

UPDATE #2 — June 9, 2016

Update from Winston Fisher June 4 2016

TeamExtreme starting to rock and roll! We have our first group run today and I know everyone has been pushing it hard to get ready for their respective races.

I was fortunate enough this week to ride with Brian Collins and Hal Goldstein. Both of them are animals on the bike. Every hill we went up they put the pedal to the metal and flew up. Every flat was attacked! The whole time I kept thinking; Holly crap I need to hold on, push harder, don't let them drop you. I loved it, nothing like some friends to push you to go beyond your comfort zone.

I was thinking a lot about what TeamExtreme means and wanted to share some thoughts. What is an extreme or challenging event is different for every person. For some people running a 5k is a major accomplishment, for others a marathon is a training run. What's important is you are pushing yourself to try something out of your comfort zone. I would love to have TeamExtreme members trying all different kinds of challenges. The only requirement for being a team member is an honest desire to help our men and women of the armed forces. Use the strength of helping others to achieve your goals.

I look forward to digging deep and going the extra mile with all my teammates.
Winston

Update #3 June 20, 2016

TeamExtreme was well represented at Syracuse Ironman 70.3 yesterday.  Winston crushed it with a time of 5:30 on a hilly course on a very hot day.  He left 100% on the course, he had nothing left at the end.  Brian (bike), Alison(run) and Mateus (swim) competed as a team and took 3rd place amongst the 40+ teams.  It was the first Ironman for all 3 of us - wow, there was so much energy and so many strong athletes.   There was such a fun atmosphere, it's easy to see why there are so many people pushing themselves to their limits.

We've had several companies sign up as sponsors and have reached the initial $100,000 in donations. Special thanks to Larry Silverstein of Silverstein Properties who is a Platinum Sponsor at $50,000 (for the 3rd year in a row).  Also thanks to Haynes and Boone and Olshan Frome who are Silver and Bronze sponsors, respectively.   In addition, several individuals have made significant donations including Evan Marks and Stuart Simon.   We are over $50,000 in individual donations.

Many thanks to all of you who have donated.  100% of your donations go directly to provide services for wounded heroes in uniform.
