BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2013
For the last 6 years I have been participating in triathlons and races and raising money for causes I care about. This year I am racing to support something new, and very important to me - The Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.
I grew up in Newtown, CT and attended Sandy Hook Elementary School for several years. My parents still live in Newtown, as do friends and their families. We visit all the time - Newtown will always be my beautiful hometown. This year I am looking to raise $2,600 while participating in a number of racing events - to honor the 26 lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School on 12/14, and to support The Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, which is encouraging and supporting common sense solutions to make our communities and our country safer from similar acts of violence.
This year, I'm taking on the:
• Block Island Sprint Triathlon on August 3
• Iron Girl Columbia Sprint Triathlon Relay on August 1 (I got sick, my team rocked it)
• TriRocks Sprint Triathlon in Clearwater, FL on November 10
I am so grateful to my family and friends who have supported me through the years as I've raced and raised money for various causes. I truly appreciate your consideration of support again this year - for something that has touched us all.
