Ironman Dave Bartoszewski
I was honored when 12 Oaks Foundation reached out to me to be their 1st Ironman Ambassador to carry on the “Iron Journey” memory of Matt Hupp. I could not be more proud to do so. So on October 15th, I will be competing in Ironman Louisville for my family, for myself, for my support crew, and for Matt.
I could not be more excited to be racing for something bigger than myself and to help children in need achieve a little bit of happiness and health in trying times. As with everything I do, I will be setting a goal (for fundraising) and I hope you choose to help along the way.
Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and then a full 26.2 marathon…all in one day. 140.6 miles of racing! My goal is to raise $25 per mile of the race for a total of $3515 for the 12 Oaks Foundation. While the race is only one day, the impact of the donations will carry on.
We are honored to have 20 runners raising $1,000 each to further the mission of the 12 Oaks Foundation.
