BENEFITING: RACING FOR RECOVERY
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017
I will be participating in the Delaware, Ohio Ironman 70.3 this July 30th. I was inspired to participate by Racing for Recovery. This organization is changing the way addiction and its recovery is being handled.
Working as a Health and Fitness Specialist I know firsthand the power of health and wellness to benefit peoples lives. I was fortunate enough to make it to a Friday evening meeting one cold January day and met Bob Mohr, Sean Fisher and Corey Krauss. After talking with these individuals, hearing their awesome tales and the effect of the organization, I knew I needed to get more involved with endurance races. Being a former powerlifter/ meathead I never thought I would sign up for an Half Ironman race, let alone continue the training for this endeavor. However, after participating in another meeting and running the Toledo Half Marathon, I have continued to be inspired by this group, their mission and the wonderful people who are a part of this organization.
My goal is to raise 1,000 dollars for this organization so that they can continue to help inspire and change people’s lives! Please check out the links, video and visit this group on Facebook and Twitter. I hope it will inspire you to participate more in your health and fitness and continue the great outreach of this program!!
