Last week's training.
October 15, 2018
Trusted family, friends, and colleagues:
Many of you know that I am an avid triathlete. You may also know about my passion for helping those who have served to protect our freedoms. Well, I am on a mission to combine both of those passions on my journey to Ironman Florida 2018. On November 3rd, I will embark in a 140.6 mile journey through swim, bike, and run and I need your help. Now, I'll handle the physical parts, but I need your support in the form of donations to the Ironman Foundation who will in turn make a contribution to the charity of my choice.
I have chosen to support Carry The Load. Carry The Load is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes — military, veterans, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders. Their goals are:
- To raise awareness of those who sacrifice for us daily by providing Americans an active way to remember, honor and celebrate them.
- To raise funds to be distributed to non-profit partners who provide direct services to our nation’s heroes and their families.
- To educate our youth on the history of our American flag and the sacrifices made to honor it.
In today's fast paced world, it's often easy to take for granted the freedoms we enjoy. But these freedoms come at a cost to others. Please join me in helping remember and honor those who have put so much on the line for us. Help me #carrytheload.
