Murray Sarubin's Fundraiser:

UNLEASHED goes ULTRA AND IRON

THE STORY:

Yes, I'm 75 and training for Ironman Maryland, my 7th Ironman competition in the last 16 years. For those non-triathlete friends, an Ironman race includes a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, topped off with a 26.2 mile run, all of which must be completed in under 17 hours. Sounds like fun, right? Not easy at any age, but a significant challenge at mine!    

My first 6 Ironman races were for me. My 7th is for animals in need (well...maybe just a little for me too). Every one of my swim strokes, pedal strokes and footfalls in both training and the race itself is to raise money in support of Talbot Humane, an open addmission shelter that has been helping animals and serving our community for over 80 years. My goal is to raise at least $10,000 to help this deserving organization in their mission to rescue animals from neglect, place companion animals into loving homes, and reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs.

So I've never asked anyone for any support for my last 6 Ironman races...not a well-wish, a cheer, a "good luck", or even a "congrats" (although I did get a lot of these from friends and family). But hey, I'm 75 now, and completing this Ironman in under 17 hours may be nothing short of a miracle according to some (not to me!)...so I'm asking you to show your support of this old man still pursuing his athletic passion while trying to make a difference in the lives of animals. I'll be doing some local fundraisers (maybe a bingo night, perhaps a guest bartending stint), but I'm counting on my friends to dig in and help by donating online. No amount is too small...but, of course, bigger is better! Whatever generosity you show is appreciated. And you are all invited to the finish line of Ironman Maryland, October 1, in Cambridge, MD, sometime between 11:30 and midnight to cheer me in.
