EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2016
I have known the Schindler family my entire life. I grew up with them as a second family. I remember watching their family go through the pain of childhood cancer and eventually loss and I still have a hole in my heart from the day that Anna passed away. Becoming involved with the Anna Schindler Foundation has made me aware of the many families going through this type of pain; something that no family should ever have to live with. I am competing in the Ironman 70.3 in an attempt to raise money and lighten the load for some of these families. If I can ease the burden by simply buying a dinner, my race will be a success. My prayer is that our efforts will truly make a difference in the lives of these families. Personally, I am running this race in honor of Anna, my godson Clark, and every family suffering through child loss and illness.
