I Am Ironman :: Please VOTE!

Our warriors and families are the hardest working people I've ever had the blessing to know. One of our warriors is training for Ironman St. George on May 5th! I'm certain anyone training to be an Ironman is not me :) . Please meet Brady, and please read the following post from his One Step Closer to Home blog with information how you can VOTE to help raise awareness for Reece's Rainbow!

Meet Brady Murray
Brady has been happily married for 10 years and is the proud father of 3 children.  His second child, Nash, was born with Down syndrome.  Brady has been very active in the Down syndrome community since welcoming Nash into their home and feels Nash is among the biggest blessings of his life.  Being able to race for orphans with Down syndrome is a dream come true.  He enjoys competing in a variety of triathlon's from Olympic distance to full Ironman distance.  Brady's race schedule for 2012 is Oceanside 70.3, Ironman St. George, Boise 70.3, and Emmet's Most Excellent Triathlon.

Here is the post describing the video and how you can vote to raise awareness for Reece's Rainbow! Please visit his site and continue to follow along!


I mentioned in my last post that we had some exciting news to be announced this week.  First, a little background. 

As you may already know, I am training for Ironman St. George on May 5th (only 16 more days!!!).  My purpose in doing so is to raise awareness and funding for orphans with Down syndrome, and in particular Maggie. 

About a month ago I received an email from Ironman announcing a competition they put together called Kona Inspired.  They have given anyone the opportunity to submit a 90 second video into this competition telling their story of how Ironman has helped them believe that "Anything is Possible".  Winners will be given the opportunity to race in the Ironman World Championship in Kona in October and most importantly, they will get to tell their story on NBC's nationally televised broadcast of the Ironman World Championship! 

When I first learned about this opportunity I knew that this truly could be an opportunity to tell the world about these children and most importantly, create the awareness that is needed to truly make a difference for them!!

So Nash and I made a video!  Before I show it to you, I want to explain how this competition works and HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOO!  Between now and May 31st, all videos can be viewed.  Based on total VIEWS and total VOTES, 15 will be chosen to compete against each other in the finals in June.  The top 2 will go to Kona!  So, back to how you can help.  You're view and vote can be counted once each day.  However, it is perfectly OK to vote more than once a day if you view the video from a different computer, laptop or phone and then vote from that device.  We have plenty of days left between now and May 31st!  You're vote is much appreciated, each and every day :) !!

I'll keep you posted on how things are going.  Here's the link to our video.  Enjoy!!!
