WINTER GROWTH INC via Crowdrise

BENEFITING: WINTER GROWTH INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 21, 2011
My mom works as a social worker at an amazing place called WinterGrowth in Columbia, MD (www.crowdrise.com/wintergrowth). WinterGrowth has an adult day care, wellness day program and assisted living for elderly and disabled adults who need assistance but are not yet ready to go to a nursing home. While getting the care they need, the elderly clients also increase their quality of life, meet new friends and expand their mind with music, movement and arts. It's a wonderful place where you can know your loved one is receiving the best care.
My mom and I had the idea to fundraise for WinterGrowth by doing the Iron Girl Triathlon. It is a very popular, female only, community minded sprint triathlon race in Columbia, MD. My mom who is over 60 and never done a race in her life is jumping way out of her comfort zone for this one but I know that she can do it b/c she is a powerful awesome woman.
We are asking that you jump out of your comfort zone and into the giving zone and donate to this cause! Please help us raise money for WinterGrowth by donating to our IronGirl fundraiser. The race is August 21, 2011 and we'll be working to raise $10,000! We'll report on how training is going throughout the year.
In the meantime, you can read more about WinterGrowth at www.wintergrowth.com and the IronGirl Triathlon at http://www.tricolumbia.org/IronGirl/.
