I can tell that I am geared up for the Lavaman Triathlon although it is not until the end of March 2013. First, I paid closer attention to the Ironman World Championships in Kona thanks to knowing a few folks who were three and competing and because a small portion of their bike course overlaps with the Lavaman bike course. Two, when I went to 7-Eleven today with my kids I was compelled to have a “Lava Flow” Slurpee comprised of Pina Colada flavor with Cherry lava running through it.
But what will make Lavaman different from when I did it in 2011 is rather than just enjoying it with my Team in Training teammates, I talked 14 of my co-workers to join me as a Team in Training Corporate Team. So rather than just raising $5,000 myself we are working to raise nearly $70,000 as a team. So far we have a pretty good start at over 10% raised at $7,112, but we are going to need a lot of help to get all the way to our goal.
One way you can help is to attend our next big fundraising event. We are going to be at the Howl at the Moon SNC TNT Triathlon Team Fundraiser Howl at the Moon Denver at 1735 19th Street, Denver, Colorado 80202 Friday, November 2, 2012 from 5:00pm until 10:00pm. Donate $21 to the SNC TNT Triathlon Team web site (http://pages.teamintraining.org/rm/lavatri13/SierraNevada) per person and get free entry, first drink free, and a free buffet (until 8 PM) for a Howl at the Moon Happy Hour. Friday: Happy Hour 5-10pm. You must check in by 8:00 for Free Admission, Free Drink & discounted drinks! There will be discounted drinks until 10 PM. This is limited to the first 100 people to donate. A code will be provided once your donation is confirmed.
So please sign up to attend or just donate if you can’t come. Exceeding my personal fundraising goal will not be enough if we can’t get the whole team to Hawaii. As always, Mahalo for your incredible support.
