EVENT DATE: Dec 07, 2013
I’ve decided to dedicate portions of my iron-distance triathlon to these causes: swimming 2.4 miles for the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, cycling 112 miles for Best Friends Animal Society, and running 26.2 miles for Children International.
Why fundraise for the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network? Those of you who know me very well know my story. Those who don’t…don’t. I’ve survived all three things listed in the name of that organization and really turned my life around in my mid-twenties. This organization has both indirectly and directly helped me put my life back together when things got very rough. Sexual abuse in all of its forms is a crime against humanity and no person who walks this Earth should ever have to suffer the way I had to. This organization provides support, counseling, information, and lobbying to keep people safe, and predators behind bars.
