Help me help a kid's wish come true! I will be racing with thousands of athletes who will swim, bike, and run a great distance. Wish Kids are having a race of their own. Every donation really does make a wish come true!

On August 22 I will be attempting to accomplish two important goals. The first is to complete a Half Ironman triathlon. The second is to raise enough money to grant a special child a wish. I will be racing on behalf of Make A Wish Foundation.  Make A Wish is a foundation that grants wishes to children with life threatening conditions. It provides a little hope and fulfillment to families who really deserve it. My family became involved after being inspired by the Make A Wish Crew while snowboarding in New Hampshire. The whole family has been involved since by doing their own fundraising including lemonade stands, can drives, and old fashioned begging!  It doesn't stop there. Nicole, Gregory, and Morgan are all doing their own triathlon on Saturday! TimberKids.

So when I found out that Make A Wish was looking for help, I had to follow the lead set by the kids and do my part. My race on Sunday won't be easy, but neither is enduring an ilness which these children have. They are the tough ones!

I really appreciate any donations that you give, and it's pretty neat to see how it affects someone special!  Thank you.
