BENEFITING: HABITAT FOR HUMANITY-REBUILD MICHIGAN
EVENT: Mighty Mac Swim 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2016
While growing up and living in Michigan my entire life, crossing the Mighty Mac never got boring. Too many crossing to count and I can honestly say that I have always wanted to swim in those waters. Now the thought of swimming the Straights of Mackinac has me over-the-top excited.
My favorite training partner is my wife Sarah. We have each done a couple dozen triathlons, ranging from short sprints to a 70.3 Ironmans. Besides triathlon swims and training, I have done a 5K and a 10K swim. We have also done countless running events from 5Ks to Marathons. We have done more half marathons than any other distance.
We are both cyclists. We like going fast in the Triathlons, long and steady on the road rides and getting dirty on the mountain bikes. I did my first mountain bike race last year and look forward to doing more next spring.
I feel very fortunate and blessed to have qualified as one of the 80 swimmers selected for the Mighty Mac Race. Now I need the support and help of my friends, coworkers, family, fellow triathletes, and running buddies to make this event a reality. I must raise a total donation of $5000 to swim this event. Please consider making a donation to my Habitat for Humanity-Rebuild Michigan fundraiser. Your donation will help Michigan families live in safer homes and help me make the swim of a lifetime.
