THE STORY:

Jim Parks and Arnold Bunagan are two triathletes who would like pass on their blessings of competing in Ironman triathlons this year by raising money for The Relief Bus.  The Relief Bus outreach consists of two former school buses customized into mobile resource centers to help feed and connect the poor and homeless with shelters, medical care, job training and drug and alcohol rehab centers in NY and NJ. 

Arnold didn't let lightning, hail or rain stop him from completing Ironman Lake Placid on July 27th. Jim enjoyed competing in the Timberman 70.3 mile race in New Hampshire on August 27th and Arnold ripped up the  Princeton 70.3 mile race in mid-September.  On October 11th Jim had the opportunity of a lifetime to compete in the Hawaii Ironman World Championships.  

In total, Jim and Arnold are swimming, biking and running 421 miles in 4 Ironman sponsored events this year.  Their goal is to raise $25 for each mile they cover to help the poor and homeless in New Jersey and New York.  You can do something now to help!

The Goal:

Raise $10,525 ($25 per mile for each of the 421 miles they are racing)

Training and participating in an event that seems really challenging is made much more doable when combined with fundraising for a cause near and dear to the heart. I understand this and give thanks for the energy it takes to do both. Well done Jim!!! 3 years ago
