This October I am racing in a 140.6 Ironman-distance triathlon in Wilmington, the Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon. Racing (and finishing) a full distance race has been a goal of mine for many years, and that dream is finally within my grasp.
At the same I prepare for this dream, I want to accomplish another: giving back to the community while setting a good example for my children and encouraging others to do the same. To that end I set up a fundraising portal through Crowdrise at www.crowdrise.com/bosken. By visiting my fundraising page you can donate to the Jimmy V Foundation (detailed at Charity Navigator), my selected charity. If you have the means and the inclination, I ask and hope that you donate. Regardless, thank you!
There are three things we should all do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two is think. Number three is you should have your emotions moved to tears. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that is a full day.
