My name is Lyle Anderson. I was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) 6 years ago. After a few years of feeling defeated I decided to do a Triathlon. Last year in 2012 I completed the toughest Ironman race ever! The full St George Ironman. It was an experience I will never forget. I have recently been given the oportunity to compete in the Ironman World Championship this year in Kona, Hawaii.
I have decided to turn my journey of completing an Ironman into a cause for the greater good by fundraising for the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA).
The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) is a national nonprofit organization and leading resource for the entire MS community, improving lives today through vital services and support. MSAA provides free programs and services, such as: a Helpline; award-winning publications including a magazine, The Motivator; website featuring educational videos and research updates; S.E.A.R.C.H.™ program to assist the MS community with learning about different treatment choices; a mobile phone app, My MS Manager™; a resource database, My MS Resource Locator; equipment distribution ranging from grab bars to wheelchairs; cooling accessories for heat-sensitive individuals; educational events and activities; MRI funding and more. For additional information about MSAA, please visit mymsaa.org.
I can’t wait to cross the finish line and know I’ve accomplished a personal goal for myself, but am also helping so many others through my fundraising.
Please help by making a safe and secure donation to my personal fundraising webpage. You can also read more about the Ironman Foundation and track my progress as I move closer toward the event date and my ultimate goal. Thank you so much for your support.
I hope to be an example to others who might be suffering as I did when I was first diagnosed. MS can be mentally very destructive. I hope to inform people that with a little positive redirection in their lives anything is possible. Even a full IRONMAN!!!
