Need a New Handcycle

Hello friends and family and thank you for taking the time to visit my page.  I have decided to start this campaign to help me raise money for a new handcycle.  I have decided I really want to get back into competing in triathlons.  The problem is that I need a new equipment.  A new handcycle can run $6[phone redacted].  I did receive a partial grant from Challenged Athelets Foundation to help but I need help from you with the rest. 

I have had a goal the past few years of competing in a half Ironman, a full Ironman, and hopefully qualifying for the Hawaii Ironman.  The triathlon has also been added to the Paralympics as an official event beginning with the 2016 games.  The only way I can go after these goals is to get new equipment that will allow me to train properly.  Even if you can not donate much, any amount will help in some way and is VERY appreciated.  My sports competitions used to be a huge part of my life and I truly do miss that.

I also understand that not everyone is comfortable with donating/paying for things online so if you would like to donate but not through this page, please reach out to me directly using the contact button on the page.

Thank You,
