BENEFITING: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: IRONMAN Race for Free 2014
Soon after finding out about the Ironman 70.3 Princeton I knew I wanted to add it to my 2014 race calender. Then looking more into the race and finding out that STOMP the Monster was the Official Charity partner I knew it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of. Anyone can sign up for one of these races but not many people will make the commitment to raise money for a charity in order to secure their spot at the start.
Giving back and helping others was my husband Cole's nature. After he died in October I knew that in carrying on his legacy I would have to give back as well. Cole and I were my mother's caregivers when she was going through her cancer treatments. Cole put his life on hold to care for my mother when she needed it. Fortunately she had the resources to make the treatment process as smooth and easy as possible. We were lucky, not many people are in that situation.
I am honored to be a part of STOMP the Monster Team and to be able to help people at a time in their lives that is completely unpredictable, and to do it in memory of my husband and mother.
