Denver

Denver aka “D”

I secured my general entry slot for to race Ironman Florida. After that was behind me, I decided to sign up with Children’s Tumor Foundation and join their NF Endurance Team to race for a great cause. Denver is our NF Hero! He’s a great kiddo! He is 7 years old and in 1st grade. Denver (or “D” as he is called) has NF 1 and was diagnosed when he was 15 months. D has had it “fairly'” easy. He has had 2 surgeries to remove a neurofibroma from his cranium. It started on his optic nerve and grew about 7 inches toward the back of his head.

My goal is to raise $5,000 while working with my Annapolis Tri Club peeps to raise $50,000 across our 10 person team. Here is the link to the NF Endurance Team fundraising page where you can make a donation. Also, don’t forget that some companies offer a matching contribution where your money can be doubled!
