THE STORY:

Three years ago my grandmother died. She couldn't write anymore, had lost over 30 pounds, and couldn't form the words to express her thoughts and feelings. Watching her suffer through the continuously debilitating effects of Parkinson's Disease broke my heart.

I will be racing Ironman 70.3 Arizona this year for Diane, my grandmother, with the knwledge that the money I raise for Team Hope will raise awareness and help find a cure for Parkinson's disease. There has been a huge correlation between exercise and delaying the onset of Parkinson's Disease so I find it fitting to race for a cure.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $3,000!

NATIONAL PARKINSON FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world, IRONMAN® competitions consist of 70.3-miles of consecutive swimming, biking and running. This event has been described as one of the best life experiences ever. Do you have what it takes to be an IRONMAN®?

The race begins at Tempe Beach Park, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge. The swim takes place in a calm, manmade lake with water temperatures in the mid 70s. The three-loop (each loop is 18.5 miles) bike course is a relatively flat and winds through Tempe before offering some scenic vistas of the Sonoran desert. The two-loop run follows a 6.5-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of Arizona State University and the developing landscape of Tempe.
