THE STORY:

I will be racing in the 2016 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona Hawaii on Saturday October 8, 2016, to raise money to help encourage women to lead healthy and active lifestyles through the sport of triathlon. Women for Tri, in partnership with The IRONMAN Foundation, will use the funds raised to fund grant and college scholarship programs that will encourage women to participate in the sport and show others that "anything is possible"!   Please join me in making a difference in encouraging women to take charge of their lives and be inspirational. Donate now and help me reach my goal.

Why Women for Tri?
Triathlon has given me the tools to take care of myself in a way that makes me a better mom, wife, and teacher.  Triathlon has taught me to believe that I can tackle any challenge, even race a Full Ironman or raise $25,000.  Triathlon has allowed me to inspire myself and others in a way that I am so proud of.  It is my mission to help other women learn these things about themselves, too! 

Since its inception in 1974, triathlon has been distinctive in its inclusion of female and male competitors on the same courses with the same challenges and rules. In keeping with the unique spirit of our sport, Women For Tri looks to increase female participation at all levels of triathlon.

The Women For Tri mission is simple: To identify and diminish primary barriers to entry, and mobilize triathlon advocates to encourage and engage female athletes across all distances and representing all athletic abilities.

Women For Tri embodies the heart and soul of what makes the sport so rewarding: testing your ability, overcoming challenges, and realizing the full depth of your potential in the most widely recognized test of endurance – triathlon.

Join me in my mission -- consider donating $1 (or more!) per mile of my 140.6 mile journey and help us establish programs to break down the  barriers that are keeping women from leading a healthy lifestyle.  

WOMEN FOR TRI PARTNERS WITH THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION & LIFETIME TO PROVIDE GRANT FUNDING TO ENGAGE FEMALE ATHLETES IN THE SPORT OF TRIATHLON.
