IRONMAN - Canada 2014
Dedication of run to: 
All MAMCF Moms

Hello all,

Thank you for all that donated to my page for my race this past June. Together we rose over $2,000 within a couple months. In 2014, I have my eye on a bigger race with even bigger goals to help young mothers fighting the battle of their lives.

On July 27, 2014 I will be racing an Ironman Triathlon in Whistler, Canada in honor of my mother and the MAMCF mom’s whose stories have touched a special place in my heart. The race consists of a 2.4mi swim, followed by a 112mi bike ride, and then finally finishing off with a 26.2mi marathon run.

As a young adult, I watched my mother battle cancer with a positive attitude and strong faith. No matter how devastating the most recent news was or how painful of a day or week, she embraced it and kept her head up. She is my inspiration and one of the reasons I participate in endurance events. I always push myself in search of the pain she felt and always know it will never compare. In all my main races, I carry a picture of her to remind me of her, her strength, her battles, and her optimism.

On July 27, 2014, I will race Ironman Canada in honor of my mother and our MAMCF moms who go through more physical and emotional tribulations that I can ever replicate, but conquer it with the same strength they display. The drive for me to race in endurance events as a member of MAMCF is to raise funds to assist MAMCF mothers with family and medical needs while improving their quality of life for them and their families.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts to help a mother….help a child.

Thank you,
