BENEFITING: India Rural Evangelical Fellowship, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Aug 29, 2015
Last year, Isaac and I decided to step into the multi-sport endurance world and complete the Chicago Supersprint. Can you believe it's been a year already! This year we've stepped it up a notch and this time the whole family is involved! We have increased the distance we are racing and the kids are joining us this year!
Sidney is participating in her first triathlon at the Chicago KidsTri (200m swim, 3.7mile bike, 1K run), Audrey is doing her first triathlon in the Supersprint (375m swim, 6.2mile bike, 2.5K run) and Isaac and I have moved up to the Sprint level (750m swim, 15.22mile bike, 5K run.)
We have been working towards this all summer and as we stretch our levels of fitness, we would like to take this opportunity to again raise funds for the India Rural Evangelical Fellowship (IREF). IREF is a Christian organization in rural India committed to the care and raising of 3000 orphans as well as supporting medical services for the community and fostering human development opportunities through the creation of self-help projects. Isaac and I have committed to sponsoring 2 children through this organization and we personally know the founding family and couldn't be more excited to be raising money for such a caring group of people doing such a tremendous amount of good.

Although I'd love to come across the finish line on Sunday, the 30th and see your smiling face cheering me on, it'd be even cooler if you could join us on Saturday, the 29th to cheer on Audrey and Sidney! Please consider donating and even if you can't at this time, keep us and IREF in your thoughts and prayers!
Isaac, Lynda, Audrey and Sidney
WE DID IT! So much fun today and felt great doing it! Can't wait for my next one! Super proud of my family for stepping up and doing this right along with me! They are awesome! Thank you everyone for all of your support and your donations to IREF!
