Welcome to My Fundraising Page!


    
  
Everyone says they support the troops, but if someone asked you how, what would you say?  Now is your chance to do something about it.

On June 24th, I will be racing an Ironman Triathlon in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  This event consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile marathon run...all in a row.  I have been training for this event since this past September, and am excited about the chance to compete it.    However, I am even more excited about the opportunity to use this event to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).  

My goal is to raise $10,000 by June 24th.  

As of this month, 1,924 service members have been killed in Afghanistan and 15,516 have been wounded; another 4,486 have been killed in Iraq and 32,223 have been wounded.  Please take just a second and think about those numbers as individuals, injured and killed one or two or three at a time, sometimes alone, usually with their comrades.  For the dead, their families getting that knock on the door.  For the wounded, the months and years of rehabilitation, and lives irreversibly changed by their experiences overseas.  Regardless of your politics or persuasions, thinking about this should move you.

Admittedly, this is a very ambitious goal, but I know that we can reach it.  I have raised funds in the past thanks to great family and friends, even raising 166% of my fundraising goal during the Marine Corps Marathon in 2009.  With your help and generous support, we can do it again.

WWP is an incredible organization that helps those who have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan through various programs including combat stress recovery, family support, adaptive sports, and job training, among others (see the full list of programs here).  Their goals are:
  • To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members

This is your chance to make a very real difference in the life of a wounded service member.  Please signup to make a donation to this invaluable cause; any amount is going to help.  Thank you for your time and generous donation.

Everyone says they support the troops.  Now is your chance to do it.
