I am competing in IRONMAN Boulder, on August 3, 2014, to raise funds for a camp I started (and direct) for children who suffer from Tourette Syndrome. Every dollar you gift goes to getting a child, that normally wouldn' t have the chance to attend, the opportunity to come to our camp. We don't charge families for their child to attend, so we can only take a certain amount of kids before we have to turn them away (due to our budget).
Finishing IRONMAN Boulder, a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run, will serve as an example, to all children suffering from Tourette's, that their disorder cannot limit them to what they can do. I have partnered with the IRONMAN Foundation to raise money as I train for my charity - Tri for Tourette.
If you have time, please view the pictures and video that I have posted to this web page. Also, please let me know if you would be interested in coming out to camp on Saturday, September 27, for a few hours, to see what all we are doing.
I cannot express enough by gratitude for the support you provide!
The following is additional information about Tri for Tourette and Camp du Ballon Rouge if you are interested in reading more.
Tri for Tourette is a fundraising program I started in 2013 and is supported by the Tourette Syndrome Association of Texas (the actual charity). The primary goal of Tri for Tourette is to raise funds so that children suffering from Tourette Syndrome have the opportunity to attend Camp du Ballon Rouge. The camp, held annually in Burton, Texas, provides a very unique and positive experience for these children, ages 5-18. Most of our campers also suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). We will be hosting our 12th annual camp in late September and we hope to have over 130 kids! There is no cost to the families whose children attend. Your financial support will allow more kids to experience the camp weekend!
The mission of Camp du Ballon Rouge is to enrich the lives of children with Tourette Syndrome (TS) through a unique outdoor experience that offers acceptance, provides hope, promotes discovery, and creates the opportunity to establish relationships with others affected by TS. We have seen positive life changes over the years in many of the children that have attended our camp. Currently, the camp is a 2-day event. We really hope to extend the camp to a week-long experience to provide our campers with even more of an opportunity to improve the quality of their life.
Your donation will help improve the quality of life for these kids by providing them with an environment where they have the opportunity to build self-esteem and to learn social skills, while living with TS. Please forward my link to any friends and family who might be interested in supporting my cause.
