It really is a rare gift to be able to live the triathlon life.
That's why I'm always looking for people who use this crazy sport for a bigger and better purpose.
He didn't finish IMCDA because of a mechanical problem on the bike.
But Scott has bounced back to take on the 24-hours of Triathlon on Labor weekend...Solo.
That's right...he's going to swim, bike and run for 24-hours by himself, and to make it more interesting he's helping out two of his coaches who recently traded running shoes for chef's hat when they opened the SAME cafe.
The idea of the SAME cafe is simple. You have lunch or dinner and you pay what you can. In other words, you can donate a dollar or you can donate $20. It's up to you.
"Hunger is a Problem
And we want to help find a solution in our own small way. So All May Eat is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in April, 2006 to help eliminate the ever growing problem of hunger in today's society.
The SAME Cafe is unique in the lack of a set menu as well as set prices. Daily selections are made using fresh, organic ingredients, and funded by the donations of patrons. Instead of a cash register, a donation box is available for one to pay what they felt their meal was worth, or to leave a little more and help out someone less fortunate. If a diner does not have sufficient money to leave, they are encouraged to exchange an hour of service in our restaurant for a full meal voucher."
Recently the air conditioner at the SAME Cafe went out so now they can only server cold meals as it ts too hot to cook hot meals. Go figure...but it is true.
So Scott has taken it upon himself to raise money for this great cafe and great cause...Hunger.
If you want to help just visit Scott's web site by clicking HERE and you can pledge a few pennies for every mile he covers during the 24 hour race.
FYI: He's expecting to swim, bike and run about 200 to 250 miles.
With so many worthy causes it can be hard to track your donations. However this is a great chance to not only track an athlete, but know exactly where and how your money will be used.
Thanks for your consideration and help.
