Going the extra mile - 140 miles that is!!!

So yesterday I discovered a new site. You can see it by clicking here. It is all about 2 ordinary guys preparing to compete at Ironman Lake Placid on 20 July 2008 and at the same time raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Ironman is a triathlon that encompasses three endurance events: a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run which has to be completed in less than 17 hours.

The goal of their project is to raise $100,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Society is the largest voluntary health organization in the world, dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing patient services. They both have a strong connection to this cause and they want to make a difference in the lives of patients and the families that have been affected by one of these deadly diseases.

I think this is absolutely amazing that somebody would put so much effort into supporting such a worthwhile cause. Please visit their website and support them if you are in a position to do so.

Please have a look at Bianca's profile on their site!
