BENEFITING: Pursuit Church's Backpack Ministries

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017

Todd Williams

THE STORY:

This year I will be racing for two reasons. Firstly, to honor God with my body. Secondly, to create a stronger community by making sure our local youth have the nourishment they need to grow into God honoring adults in their own way.

Through Ironman Foundation - Your Journey Your Cause Program - I will be raising funds for Pursuit Church's Backpack Ministries Program.  

Upon learning of Backpack Ministries, it immediately grabbed my attention. Kids right here in our community going for days, even weeks, not knowing where their next meal will come from.  They are feed at school through school lunch programs, but what happens at night or on the weekend?  Children cannot control the enviroment they are born into or the misfortune of the adults who care for them. This program provides children the food they need to flourish when their situation is less than ideal. 

As an endurance athlete I consume massive amounts of food daily to keep my body fueled. And honestly, it has never crossed my mind to stop to think of children right here, living on the very streets I train, that may not have the opportunity to eat anything that day. So this year I will race and train for these kids.  

From  January 1, 2017 to October 10, 2017, I am pledging to complete 4000 miles of training and racing. That is 17 miles a day. I gladly sacrifice my body to help, and I also pledge to donate .25 cents per completed mile during the timeframe.

Local business leaders, this is where I'll need your help. In order to reach the goal of $25,000, we need 24 more people, businesses, or organizations to match my pledge of .25/mile. All donations are greatly appreciated.  Please consider giving what you can to help the kids in our community. 

Please follow 'The Journey to 4000 Miles' on this fund raising page or on Carolina Striders Facebook page.
