We TRI For Hunter! We are dedicating our Florida 1/2 Ironman race to raise funds to offset the medical expenses of Hunter Himes.

Never, Never, Never Give Up! These famous words are a common mantra for endurance athletes. That is why the three of us are dedicating our Florida 1/2 Ironman Triathlon on May 20th to Hunter.
On February 26th, 14 year old Hunter was tragically struck by a car while riding his bike. Hunter sustained life threatening injuries and is fighting to recover from this accident. He has recently left the ICU to begin the long journey of rehab. Words cannot describe the anguish Hunter's parents and family are enduring. We want to dedicate our race to raising funds to help Hunter's family offset the immense medical costs. The parallel of Hunter's long fight ahead & the endurance aspect of our sport is how this idea was born. The ability to race is a gift, so let's return the favor!
