Amy Dunstan Make a Wish with Timberman

As most of you know I will be participating in my first triathlon next month! Why? Great question... I ask myself that often....believe me...OFTEN!! Although I am very nervous I have to admit I am excited too. My husband and kids have become my personal cheerleaders and coaches and I am hoping not to disappoint them.

I decided to join in this fundraiser so I have another purpose for crossing the finish line. Completing the 1/2 Ironman is my wish....I hope to be able to make someone else's wish come true at the same time. Thanks!

WISH RACING - HOW IT STARTED

The Wish Racing program began at the 2009 Timberman to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Hampshire. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Hampshire grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. There are over 100 children annually in New Hampshire who qualify for a wish.

The program was a joint creation of Endorfun Sports, Christopher Reap (MAW Executive Board Member) and J.T. O’Donnell (MAW of NH Executive Board Member). During the 2009 Timberman Sprint and Half Ironman races, approximately eighty three athletes signed up to be “Wish Racers”. Wish Racers were challenged to raise money for the foundation, and they were successful in raising nearly $50,000. In return for their fundraising efforts, Wish Racers were provided a uniform, swag items and VIP perks on race day. Perhaps most important (as stated by the wish racers themselves) was that Wish Racers were provided exclusive access to a decorated Wish Racer port-a-potty for use on race morning!
