5k goal achieved! Thank you! Thank you! Thank You! Two weeks until IM Maryland. ?
September 16, 2018
My name is John Zeigler and I am registered for the IM MD on September 29, 2018 in Cambridge ,Maryland. Completion of this 140.6 will be the culmination of a long journey which coincides with a much harder journey my father, Paul Zeigler, underwent since being diagnosed with leukemia in 2015. Although he passed away on December 2, 2017, his strength and courage while battling chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant and post transplant viral attacks was remarkable. It is my hope that via donations to the Be The Match foundation I can assist in some small way to help others who seek transplant and associated support. Be The Match is a national reputable organization on the cutting edge of transplant research and provides direct assistance to those in need of a transplant and their families. Please consider making a one time donation perhaps based upon a per mile pledge for the swim, run and bike miles I will train and compete from January 1, 2018 through the Iron Man on September 29, 2018. I estimate the total mileage at 3000 which would translate to a $30 donation for one penny per mile pledge, a $150 donation for a nickel per mile pledge and a $300 donation for a dime. A donation of any kind will greatly assist those in need. Thank you! John
