THE STORY:

My name is Andrew Twito. I live in Minneapolis, MN and attend St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church. At the behest of a friend, I signed up for the Ironman triathlon race in Madison, WI. We will attempt to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run 26.2 miles on September 13, 2015. There are many factors that led to accepting this challenge. Most notably, support from friends and family. My father has passed down multiple bikes, an endless supply of gear and the will to go further than most. My mother provides unwavering emotional support for all my life adventures complemented by the latest articles on nutrition, training and spiritual guidance. I’ve also been blessed with friends who appreciate celebrating the joys and challenges of life. I especially have Brian to thank for having the ambition and uncommon generosity to convince me to attempt this race.

I created this profile for the IOCC – Race to Respond because I wanted to devote the time, energy, and (hopefully) achievement to God. Years ago, I had an inspirational 1980’s workout poster in my room of a guy wearing a rad tank top and sweat band. The words on the poster provided edifying perspective:

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come - 1 Timothy 4:8

IOCC provides the opportunity to make this event more valuable for me and countless others. By donating to this organization, you are providing emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide. It is hard to imagine the vast difference between someone who has the resources to attempt an Ironman compared to the victims of natural disaster and terrorism in places like Nepal and Syria. This is my small attempt to bridge that gap in the spirit of Christ’s love.

Thank you for considering a donation.
