Team Ortho Couer d'Alene 2008

Taconite boy begins his training today. 20 Weeks to Ironman. In some ways it seems like it far off in the distance, but in reality those weeks just seem to fly by. Before you know it, your suiting up and getting into the water with 2500 of your best friends.

Last year when Tac did Ironman Wisconsin he decided to participate in a Janus Charity Challenge by raising Funds for SAVE (Suicide Awareness and Voices of Education).

What a rewarding experience! I determined that any future Ironman's would always involve a Janus Charity of some sort because it made the process so much richer.
By the way, we raised $3000.00 last year for SAVE and Janus added another 800 to total 3800.00!

Thank you to all of those who supported Tac and SAVE last year!

Well this year to race at Couer d'Alene was through a Team Ortho slot.


Sounds good to me. Team Ortho is dedicated to raising funds for Orthopedic research to better the lives of those who suffer from joint ailments. Much of the research that they fund is used not just here in the US but all over the world to help devloping nation populations. Team Ortho also encourages general joint health by sponsoring multiple ameteur races all over the country.

Tac will get right to the point. He needs your help. If 200 people donate $10.00 I will have reached my goal! (I'll tip in the rest if need be) of $2500.00

Team Ortho uses the Janus Charity site to raise funds, credit cards accepted. If you would like to send a check please contact Tacboy by email.
