Make A Wish is such a deserving organization and we're proud to be raising money for them while competing in Timberman 70.3 Triathlon on August 22!

Many of us "newbies" in the world of parenting have been thankful that our child or children are healthy and willing to do ANYTHING to keep them safe.  What happens when you do everything possible to protect your child, but a cold or flu turns into a trip to a doctor, then the hospital, and then your child is fighting for his/her life?  We can't imagine the feeling of helplessness that sets in when the news from the doctors is that your child has a "life-threatning illness".

Make A Wish Foundation allows some sense of fun and excitement for children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatning medical condition.  In a world of hospitals and treatments, a child can be a star for a day.  They can have something to look forward to, and something to remember for a long time. 

We have had the opportunity and ability to participate in a number of triathlons and endurance events, and do so because we CAN.  Many of the children that we are racing for may never have the same opportunity.  To test our strength and will for one day is in no comparison to what many of these children endure.  We are racing for their opportunity to do something have a wish granted.  Please help us raise money for this wonderful organization and think of us on August 22 while we swim, bike and run to make a difference in a child's life.  THANK YOU!!

Erin and Tim
