Help Navy Midshipman Run an Ironman

I, a Midshipman in the Naval ROTC unit at Rice University, am training to run my first Ironman 70.3 in August of 2018 in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and then an Ironman 140.6 in Panama City, Florida to raise money for veterans charities. I am one of few training with the intent of becoming officers in the highly elite special warfare community, the Navy SEALs. As motivated and dedicated as I am, I am still poor college students and registration for events like these is very expensive! Any help you all can provide in facilitating our attendance of these awesome training events (Half and Full Ironmans) is extremely appreciated! In terms of this gofundme, the first $3000 raised will go towards necessary gear, lodging, and registration fees. Everything after that will be donated to a veterans charity! I would like to raise as much money as possible to be able to give back to the community if veterans that have given us all so much. I also want to inspire those future Midshipmen, aspiring to greater things, that they too can do events like this as a student and future Naval Officer. Thank you for donating and sharing!
