Blind Athlete to represent USA in London

Brandon has been asked to compete in the Paratriathlon World Championships in London, England, September 10-September 16, 2013. He will swim 750 meters, bike 20k and run 5k. We are trying to fund the trip for Brandon and his guide, Ron Stitt, as well as Brandon's parents, David and Marilynn.


Brandon is a remarkable person and athlete for many reasons, but a few reasons really stand out and make him a clear choice. First, he is a competitor. He loves to train and race and will not turn down a chance to compete. I have known athletes who only race when they think they can do well. Brandon competes because he loves the atmosphere and the people as much as the competition. Second, he will follow through on his commitment. If he says it, you can bank on it. I have never known him to no-show for any training event or race to which he committed. Not many can say the same. Finally, most importantly, Brandon has a spirit and personality that draw people to him and that speak to the spirit of this sport. He embraces (literally) everyone who meets him. He exudes enthusiasm and support to everyone whether he knows them or not. He makes people feel good about our sport when they meet him and talk to him and see what he has accomplished. He inspires those around him. For this reason alone, he will be a great ambassador in London.
