3 days days till Ironman Maryland!!!
September 25, 2018
BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2018
As many of you may know I completed my first Ironman, Ironman Florida, on November 4th, 2017…a huge personal challenge that I was thrilled to mark off my bucket list. The following day, November 5th, 2017, my grandmother ended her long hard battle with Alzheimer’s, something that not only my grandmother but my family has struggled with for years.
As it turns out, I’m a glutton for punishment and signed up to complete Ironman Maryland on September 29, 2018. I want to use this opportunity to bring awareness to Alzheimer’s and raise money for research to end a horrible disease that so many suffer from for far too long.
I've set a personal goal to raise $5000. While this seems lofty and a bit of an undertaking...if you know anything about me you know I like a challenge.
Go big or go home, right?
