This fundraiser closed 3 months ago
On October 6th, I'll be traveling to Virginia to complete my first Olympic distance triathlon. After being sick earlier this year it will be an important accomplishment for me, but I would love for it to be much more than that. I've been thinking about the loved ones that I've lost over the years and the many things that they taught me. Compassion, initiative, philanthropy, and the necessity to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. While training for the triathlon, I've been so inspired by these individuals.
Therefore, I decided that the triathlon would be a great way to raise money for a cause that is very close to my heart. I hope it can serve as a reminder to myself and others of the tremendous impact that certain individuals have had on our lives. And in the process, if I can fundraise and donate to an organization that does such great work to help those struggling and at risk, than it will be a huge success. Aunt Patty, Grandma, Brian....thank you.
