THE STORY:

Last year, I became a founding Officer of myTEAM TRIUMPH - Wings of Central Jersey, a ride along organization that takes physically challenged youth and adults on running races and triathlons.

Together with my brother Scott and myTEAM TRIUMPH President Dave Marks, we will be tackling the 1.2 miles swim (Dave), 56 mile bike (my brother Scott), and half-marathon run (yours truly!), raising money for myTEAM TRIUMPH!  With the money raised we hope to buy more running chairs so we may give even more children the same thrill of crossing the finish line which we will experience in this event!

As many of you know, this organization is near and dear to my heart, as my 11-year-old son Ryan faces challenges similar to myTEAM TRIUMPH's brave young running partners.  Ryan has enjoyed coming along with me in many running races, so it is a blessing we can be part of myTEAM TRIUMPH and help many others through sport!

As an Officer of myTEAM TRIUMPH it was my honor last May to meet the inspiration of the organization (and my inspiration personally), Dick and Rick Hoyt!   Dick and his son Rick are legendary (to say nothing for being in the Ironman Hall of Fame) with their six Ironman and 30+ Boston Marathon finishes,  Dick pushing and pulling his son the entire distances!

It is with their inspiration that myTEAM TRIUMPH helps others, and we hope you will donate to this cause and root us on (particularly as I do the final leg of the triathlon, the 13.1 mile run)!  The organization is a registered 501(c)3, and all donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for supporting us at this time and on race day, and in giving us the ability to serve these very deserving physically challenged kids and make them a part of our athletic community!
