Jeremy's Ironman Challenge

Follow my training on my blog!

UPDATE for August 2, 2010: THANK YOU!!!  Thank you to EVERYONE who supported my journey to IRONMAN Lake Placid!  I completed the triathlon in 15:54:07.  What an incredible experience!!

In addition to reaching my personal goal, giving back to this amazing place we call New Hampshire by fundraising for The Nature Conservancy has been the greatest journey of my life.  With your help I was able to blow away my goal of raising $140,600 for people and nature.  In fact, together we raised over $195,000, earning the Conservancy an additional $4,000 from the Janus Fund!

My IRONMAN journey may have come to an end, but protecting nature and special places for Ellie and her generation is far from over.  I hope you’ll continue to support The Nature Conservancy and the great work they do.

 

UPDATE for June 29, 2010: Hey everyone!  Thanks for all your support of my journey to IRONMAN Lake Placid.  We're in the home stretch now!  I want to invite you all to my going away party at Red River Theatre in Concord.  It's on Thursday, July 15th at 5:30pm and it's going to be quite the event!  RSVP to Megan over at the Conservancy or via the Facebook Event page.  Can't wait to see you!

 

UPDATE for April 23, 2010: Thank you to all who supported my 50-mile bike ride on Earth Day for Nature!  I rode from The Nature Conservancy's Manchester Cedar Swamp Preserve to their Lubberland Creek Preserve, located in Newmarket on Great Bay.  New Hampshire Chapter State Director, Daryl Burtnett, trustee, Taylor Caswell, TNC member Doug Ewing and my buddy Jay all rode with me.  It was amazing!  My goal was to raise $5,000 towards my Ironman Challenge on this day.

Hello friends and family!

On July 25, 2010 I’ll be participating in the Ford Ironman USA Triathlon in Lake Placid, New York. And I’ll be competing to support the New Hampshire Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.
 
I decided in 2007 that I would compete in an Ironman after my aortic tissue valve failed, putting me in heart failure. If I could survive the aortic reconstruction and valve replacement, than I could do anything I set my mind to.
 
My hope is to raise at least $140,600 - $1,000 for every mile of the Ironman. My ultimate goal, however, is to be the top fundraiser at Ironman Lake Placid. If I am, the Janus Fund will donate an extra $10,000 to The Nature Conservancy.
 
A lot of people ask why I don’t choose a charity that relates directly to what I’ve been through. I really wanted to stay local and work with the best possible people to achieve the greatest impact here in New Hampshire. The Nature Conservancy’s passion for people and nature is so strong and it has already helped to protect over 270,000 acres across our state. I want to help them achieve even greater success. 
 
Not to mention that competing for the Conservancy means competing for Elliana, my 14 month-old daughter. Protecting all of our great natural resources now will ensure that her generation can experience the wonders of our state that inspire me today.
 
I hope you will consider supporting The Nature Conservancy and sponsor me in this challenge of a lifetime. Please sponsor a mile for $1,000, or make a gift of $100, $50, $25, or anything that you can afford on my page today. It’s simple, fast and totally secure. Every little bit helps!
 
Thanks for your support and let the 140.6 journey begin!
 
Jeremy

 

My IRONMAN journey may have come to an end, but protecting nature and special places for Ellie and her generation is far from over. I hope you’ll continue to support The Nature Conservancy and the great work they do.  Live your life to the fittest!
