Ike & Brennan's Tri for Charity

We’re two college buddies on a mission to do two things: achieve our shared goal of competing in an Olympic Triathlon, and raise ten thousand dollars for two great charities that are close to our hearts. On June 5th, we’ll be shipping off to Detroit to race in the Island Lake Triathlon, which means we have about a month to meet our fundraising goals - and we can’t do it without your help! All of the funds will be split evenly between our two foundations: Mr. Crowley’s Kids and the Elizabeth L. Joksimovic Foundation.

Brennan will be racing for Mr Crowley’s Kids, a legacy fund in honor of his late grandfather which offers financial support to children that attend St. Joseph’s Catholic School a K-8 school in Cincinnati, OH. Your donations will provide meals, clothes, and school supplies for children that are unable to afford these basic needs, and will help St. Joe’s start a summer program for underprivileged students outside of the school year. More information about St. Joe’s can be found here.

Ike will be racing for the Elizabeth L. Joksimovic Foundation, a nonprofit created in the name of his late mother after she lost her battle with stomach cancer in 2006. The ELJ Foundation has a progressive mission to advance excellence in healthcare and education by raising money for cancer research and women in the workplace.  The foundation also provides funding for scholarships for Highland Park High School students and oncology nurses at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. For more information, follow us on Facebook or visit us at our  website.

We are humbled and excited to be competing with the support of our corporate sponsor: Conquer. Conquer. is a start-up social media application that helps athletes connect and compete in the sports they love. Along with outfitting us on race day, Conquer will be donating a portion of all apparel sales made before June 5th to our cause! To learn more and buy gear, check them out here  !

We are extremely grateful for any and all support that you can offer! We feel touched to have the opportunity to raise money for organizations that are so close to our hearts and hope our donors recognize the value that Mr. Crowley’s Kids and the Elizabeth L. Joksimovic Foundation bring to our respective communities. Please spread the word and feel free to reach out to either of us with any questions!
