Firstly, WELCOME! to my CrowdRise page! After moving to a house on the ocean front of the west coast of Ireland, I decided to take up running as an excuse to appreciate such amazing scenery every day of the week. As the days went by, I started longing for a fitness related challenge. After a quick browse on the 'trifind.com' website, I came across the Newfound Lake Triathlon and immediately thought "This is the one"! After a few days, I also thought it may be a good opportunity to raise some money for a GREAT cause....
Educational Opportunities Fund (EOF), as I'm sure you already know, provides scholarships to young people from all over the world to attend camp. I'd like to think that we could persuade friends, family or even complete strangers to part with a few dollars in sponsoring the training and participation of the Triathlon.
I have registered for the 'International' Triathlon (1 mile Swim, 27 mile Bike and 6 mile Run). If you would like to as well, FANTASTIC! I'd love to hear some fundraising, training or even post-race get together ideas!
If you don't fancy participating in the Triathlon, please still forward this link to friends, family and the crazy neighbour. With YOUR help, we could raise some serious $$$!
Thanks in advance and lets get as many people involved as we can!!
