We are two triathletes who would like pass on our blessings of being able to compete in Ironman triathlons this year by raising money for The Relief Bus an outreach of New York City Relief. Arnold will be competing in Ironman Lake Placid on July 27th and Jim was fortunate to win a lottery entry into the Hawaii Ironman on October 11th.
Jim Parks and Arnold Bunagon are swimming, biking and running 421 miles in 4 ironman events in Hawaii, New York, New Hampshire and New Jersey from July to October 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!
Raise $10,525 ($25 per mile: 421 miles – 4 races - across 3 states)
Consider one of the Sponsorship Tiers Below:
- 26 Mile Platinum Marathon Sponsor $650
- 20 Mile Gold Sponsor $500
- 10 Mile Silver Sponsor $250

The Cause: The Relief Bus (www.reliefbus.org)
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.
For over 20 years time, The Relief Bus has:
- Served over 4.5 million servings of food and beverage.
- Connected 191,000 people to help and hope.
- Mobilized over 48,000 volunteers to serve with their outreach.
The Relief Bus has seen men and women totally turn their lives around because someone they met on the bus took the time to care. It was the first step to freedom and a new life.
We need your help, please pledge your support by donating to this awesome race. Thank you for your consideration of contributing to this great cause!
