THE STORY:

First, let me tell you what a full Ironman race is. The morning starts with a 2.4 mile swim, then hop on a bike for a 112 mile ride, then throw on your running shoes and run a full 26.2 mile marathon. Yes, all in one day!! Yes, it sounds like an unattainable goal. It sounds like a lot of work!!! Perhaps a little crazy!

As soon as I received the confirmation email "Congratulations, you are registered for Ironman Arizona" I knew I wanted my training and racing efforts to go to a greater cause. Of course, its a personal goal as well. To go above and beyond what I think im capable of. But I sincerely wanted it to mean more.

Some of you know I volunteer my time at Powerhouse Ministries for women. Its a transitional living facility Ive been involved for several years helping with a weekly bible study for the women. My husband, Sean takes care of all of their dental needs, a lot of them giving them a new, beautiful smile to match their new heart. Many of these women come from crazy circumstances in life- and are just trying to make it to another day. Powerhouse Ministries provides shelter, food, counseling and many other resources to them and many other women in the community, free of charge. I have personally witnessed amazing heart transformation in many of the women. Ive seen chains of bondage to addictions, broken. Ive seen grace, mercy and blessing pour out over so many lives. Its really amazing to be a part of. These women are special to me, and Powerhouse does an amazing job with the limited resources it has.

I want to do more. I can train by myself- The swimming, biking and running. I have already paid my entry fees to the race (which are not cheap!) and I am paying for my own gear and travel expenses. But I need your help. I personally want to challenge you to take this journey with me and help me raise money for the women at Powerhouse Ministries. My goal is to raise 10,000 by the time I complete the race. (They close the course after 17 hours by the way, so I really hope to be crossing the finish line before then!)

I am challenging all of our dental associates to match our office donation, but my overall goal is $10,000. Every donation, great or small goes for a greater cause and goes directly into helping these women. Please help me by supporting me and encouraging me to achieve my goal! Thank you in advance!

Phillipians 4:13 I CAN DO ALL THINGS, THROUGH CHRIST, WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH.
