Before heading up to Quebec …

Before heading up to Quebec for the big race I would like to thank you for your support of MyTEAM Triumph, the handicap ride-along program which helps severly disabled kids enjoy the thrill and satisfaction of competing in endurance events. I am proud that together we have raised over $7,000.00 and that the "Wings of Central Jersey" Chapter of the organization, the 20th nationwide, has been incorporated, and has its own website and its sights set on it's first race this October! I am genuinely humbled by your support of this charity and the frequent interest everyone shows in my participation in these Ironman events.

The first link below is a link to the "Real Sports" program on HBO which did a moving, ten minute clip on the inspiration for MyTEAM Triumph, Dick and Rick Hoyt. They are the father-son team who are the faces of the Boston Marathon, the father havining pushed and pulled his son through six Ironman events and 30 Boston Marathons, inspiring many worldwide. If you have the few minutes to watch the clip you will have clear reason to be proud of your generous gift to the cause.

And if you will allow me one final indulgence, below is a link to the race website for Sunday the 18th, when at 6:55 a.m. l will be plunging into a pristine lake in Quebec with hopefully a successful 15 or so hour day ahead of me, swimming, biking, and then running. If during the day you are so inclined you can access the website, and hit "Coverage" at the top, "Ironman Mont Tremblant", "Athlete Tracker", and then type my name, and it will report when I have passed (hopefully) certain check points and where I am along the route. Your support of me and this charity will be added motivation throughout the day to keep plugging away, hopefully crossing the finish line sometime after 9:30 p.m. and certainly before the midnight cut off.

It was my pleasure and joy when I opened my email and saw your donation. Thank you so much for having joined me throughout the process leading up to the race, and you will be there during the race itself, in my gratitude and motivation.

I also look forward to keeping you apprised of our MyTEAM Triumph Chapter, which you have helped found.

God bless,

David

Dear Rob, Lisa, and (Growing) Family,
Really awesome and a pleasant surprise that you donated to the fundraiser for what should be a very worthwhile organization!
