"I did this fundraising in memory of my mother and father who both passed away in the past 5 years. They would have been so pleased at how much I raised for Start2Finish as they both loved children.
I did this fundraising while training for the Mont Tremblant Ironman race which was held this past August 19. I'm also happy to say that not only was I successful at completing my second Ironman race but I also managed to place first in my age group. This qualified me for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii and since they only offer 1 slot in my age group, I was awarded the slot! The race is this October. It's all so surreal right now; never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be racing in Kona. What an honour it is.
It's been a pleasure raising money for this wonderful cause and I hope that one day in the future I can find the time to volunteer for Start2Finish."
