THE STORY:

Hello all!

After taking a year off of competing in Ironman, I will be back again at Ironman Louisville 2017. This time I will be raising funds for the World Pediatric Stroke Association. Why the WPSA? Well...here's why:

Back in 2015, two of my great friends Matt and Jessica gave birth to a boy named Tanner. With 3 1/2 weeks left in the pregnancy, she could not feel Tanner moving. They went to the hospital and she had an emergency C-Section performed. Everything went great.

At 9 months old, Tanner wasn't sitting up, rolling over, crawling or really doing the things that a nine-month old should be doing. They started doing therapy, and one of their therapists mentioned that they should have him seen by a neurologist. They determined that Tanner had had a stroke.

Tanner had the stroke between in utero and one month of age. Since then, Tanner has been getting four types of therapy: speech, occupational, developmental and physical. He didn't use to use his right hand and would keep is close to his body (another syptom of the stroke). I am happy to say that Tanner is now doing great and continues to improve every day!

The World Pediatric Stroke Association's mission is to increase awareness and knowledge among both the general public and medical professionals about strokes and cerebrovascular disease in the unborn, newborns and children up to 18 years of age, and to support research that involves those impacted by pediatric stroke. When you think of the word stroke, most people associate it with older individuals, but it can truly happen to everyone.

Please join me in supporting this very worthy cause! I also invite you to check out the World Pediatric Stroke Associations website at http://www.worldpediatricstrokeassociation.org/. If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email at ryan.hypke@gmail.com.

Thank you all!
