BENEFITING: Texas Children's Hospital

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017

Matthew DeAsis

THE STORY:

I am raising money for Texas Children's Hospital's newest dedicated pediatric hospital which is slated to open on April 29th. It will offer much needed care for the children of Montgomery county and the surrounding area. On April 22nd, I along with 2800 other athletes will march into Lake Woodlands for the start of Ironman Texas. I will start at 6:40am CST and will embark on a 2.4 mile swim...a 112 mile bike ride...and finally a 26.2 marathon run to the finish which I hope to complete by midnight.

I no longer race for myself but I race for those who cannot be there to enjoy the simple things in life such as feeling the warmth of the sun on their face. While many may see the Ironman as a daunting endeavor, I have learned the Ironman is a challenge but not difficult in the scheme of life. I have become friends with several families who go to the hospital from sun up to sun down and sit with their child waiting for an answer that unfortunately in some cases never comes. Reading their stories of holding their child for the last time as well as their lives envisioning the milestones they will miss and not be a part of drives me to show the world they may have passed but their memory shall and will live on. I will represent the hospital but more importantly 22 little toddlers who were waiting for a heart transplant that unfortunately never came that this race is dedicated to.

I have walked the hallways of the 15th and 18th floor CVICU at Texas Children's Hospital downtown and while I have seen miracles happen I have also shared in the loss of a little one being called home. I do not have an answer for any of the ailments that rob children of their lives but my hope is that this will bring attention to the work being done at Texas Children's Hospital and hopefully one step closer to finding an answer.

They say Pain is Real....but so is Hope.

Thank-you for your support.
