Help Miles make this More than an Ironman - as he helps raise money for More than Peace!
The Ironman is a personal challenge that I have always dreamed of conquering even though the very idea of pushing my body and mind so far still feels totally overwhelming.
The Ironman is a 3.9km swim; 180km cycle; and a 42km run (a total of 140.6 miles) - all in one day of non-stop racing - starting at 7am and with the cut-off at midnight!
Our nation is facing many major challenges and the More than Peace team is working hard to bring peace and justice in key conflict situations. As they work to grow a team of peace builders who can help mediate key transitions in our nation, such as on the university campuses, their work can often feel overwhelming.
Your generous support will encourage me to complete the Ironman; and enable More than Peace to persist in their important and difficult work!
I will be participanting in the Ironman (140.6) race in PE on April 15 2018 as a member of the (be)CAUSEweTRI team.
Please support my campaign by donating to More Than Peace - simply select the 'donate' button next to the barometer. The money donated will be used to train peace builders and mediators in key communties and institutions facing conflict.
