THANKS FOR SUPPORTING THE SECOND ANNUAL PLUMPY NUT IRONMAN WISCONSIN DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS FUNDRAISER!  TOGETHER, WE'RE SAVING CHILDREN'S LIVES---for $40 a child!

Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues,

Some people say that a 140.6 mile triathlon is impossible.  Yet, we know that with hard work, dedication, perseverence, good tools, and a great community of supporters, we can achieve this "impossible" goal.

It's the same with babies dying of starvation. To some, solving this problem seems impossible. Because of the dedication and perseverence of a French nutritionist, however, and the work of Doctors Without Borders, there's now a way to prevent childen dying from starvation and suffering the long-term effects of mal-nutrition in areas if the world devastated by famine, drought, and social and medical crises like HIV/AIDS. The cure for childhood starvation is called "Plumpy'Nut," and $40 allows Doctors Without Borders to buy and deliver enough of it to save a child's life. Is that possi ble?  Amazingly, it's true.

When $40 saves a child's life, every dollar counts.  And in the  Ironman Janus Charity Challenge, every dollar increases our chance of winning extra money for Doctors Without Borders, which is why we are so grateful to you for pooling your resources with others to help us compete in the Janus Charity Challenge.

THANK YOU for your generous support of the Plumpy Nut Ironman effort, and for joining us in funding the amazing work of Doctors Without Borders.  Together, we can save hundreds of childrens lives and win Janus dollars to save even more.

Maybe this is why the official Ironman motto is "Anything is Possible!"
 

With gratitude,

Judy and the rest of the Plumpy Nut Ironman crew
