So here we are, a couple months out from the start...The start of triathlon season used to be an Olympic race around Kansas City leading up to Ironman 70.3 Kansas, but this year we plow head long into Ironman Texas in May.
Why a spring event where all my training is mostly indoors in a Kansas cold winter? I'm not sure. Maybe I'm crazy, but it's all for a good reason.
Pairing IM Texas with IM Choo for Mended Little Hearts and Ride to Give is all a part of my master www.Tri4aHandUp.com fundraising scheme.
Where are we at? Glad you asked.
Here's a handy slide showing where we are for each event and overall.
As you can see,with 3 months to go, we have a lofty goal of $1500 with IM Texas and only at $138 (thanks to those that bought Booster t-shirts). We have a long way to go! Feel free to drop a buck or two off at http://www.active.com/donate/kickstartyourheart/T4AHUIMTX. I know you want to. ;)
IM Choo is doing a little better and we have until September to make that happen. You can check out that campaign and contribute at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/6b2s7/ab/61quY2.
We also have help coming on from the Xterra sales using code "C-SETTHEPACE", so thank you to all that have used that code to get a discount and contribute back to T4AHU.
Also stay tuned for an AWESOME online raffle of sweet gifts that SEVERAL companies that I have reviewed products for have contributed, free of charge. If you know of a quality method to run an online charity raffle, please drop me a comment and we can get that going!
Thanks for ready and have a good week!
