First we wanted to thank the many volunteers that joined us this past Saturday at the Rock Cliff Triathlon. We were able to raise money and I think we all had a great time, too.
As you may know, I’m trying to get into the Hawaiian Ironman. I made it through the first round, and I’m half way through the final round. In another week we’ll know if I made the finals and got in. I know I can get in WITH YOUR HELP! If I get enough votes and get one of the spots, it would give the Hess Cancer Foundation nationwide recognition and allow us to help many more families. It would also bring donations in from across the nation. Thus far the Hess Cancer Foundation has helped 22 families and our goal is to help 100 families in need. The Hawaiian Ironman would be an excellent way to let the entire nation know what we do, and thereby help the people in need to find out about us. Here’s the link to vote for me: http://bit.ly/NM0bdN. Just click on the button on the bottom left that says “Vote for This”. If you are restricted from this website, try logging onto www.konainspired.com. Scroll through the pictures until you find me, then click on the button that says “Vote for This”.
I also wanted to let you know that KSL recently interviewed me and wrote a story that showed up on the KSL website this past Sunday. Their story can be found here: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=1010&sid=20975944. It has some good pictures and is worth reading. Also, Mormon Times will be airing a program on Sunday, July 8th, at 10:00 AM which will feature my wife and me. It will also tell our story – please tune in.
Thanks again for your support, we couldn’t do this without you!
