Janus Charity Challenge




This is what I call putting my money where my mouth is!!

The Janus Charity Challenge is for athletes participating in Ironman events throughout the world that want to raise money for their favorite charity. After 12 months of training and not doing any work for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I was excited to find this avenue where I can train for the most grueling race AND help to find a cure for cancer.

I have some high expectations. I have set my fundraising goal at 25,000.00 before November 2009. I am planning on having a gala event, a BBQ, several garage sales and car washes and quite a number of Ebay Auctions with items donated by some dear friends.

The most exciting part? If I am the top fundraiser at Ironman Florida, Janus will donate an extra $10,000.00 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!!! Can you imagine!!?? That would be $35,000.00 towards research!! AWESOME!!!

Glad your mom is home and glad your tests turned out ok for now. I need to call and schedule my mamo.

I think it's a wonderful thing you are doing by raising money. I will donate, but it may be after the year. I need to look at everything for December.

And I'm planning on doing America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride again through TNT, so if you are doing it too, I'd love to meet up with you at some point.

Saw your comment on my beginnertriathlete post (I'm bar92 over there). I'd love to meet up with you at some point in Tahoe.
