Sponsor Mike Shuck: Support His Ironman Goal

Hello, my name is Ashley Boynes-Shuck and I am starting this GoFundMe on behalf of my husband, Mike Shuck. His goal for his 40th year is to complete an IronMan - the toughest of all triathlon races! 
Ironman races are not only physically grueling and mentally challenging, they are also expensive. (And talk about commitment - he quit his part-time job to train for it!)
So: instead of a birthday or Christmas gift, please consider donating whatever amount you feel called to give and are able to contribute in order to help 'sponsor' Mike in his training and help with registration, equipment, and travel associated with the Ironman race. T

his is all he's asking for this year for Christmas and his birthday! So if you do wish to give him a gift,  or were already planning on doing so anyway, a donation towards his Ironman journey is all he wants! (We also will not be having a 40th birthday party for this same reason: time, energy, and money are going towards the Ironman this year!)

So, please show your support (if you are able.) On Facebook we've shared other ways you can help: send an encouraging text, email, photo collage, or video. Attend an event. Share the GoFundMe link. Make him a sign. Give him a call to encourage or show support, or send him a motivating TED Talk or Podcast to listen to.

Thank you! and GO MIKE!
PS: follow his journey on his Instagram @mike.shuck.ndofit by checking out the hashtag #averagetoironman! (He also uses hashtag #ndofit.)

PSS: for clarification: we also mentioned on Facebook and via email (and are adding here in the updates,) that any excess money we raise beyond what he needs for his Ironman will be donated to a charity of our choosing!  We don't expect to raise $2,000 but if we do, a good cause will benefit too.
