Tri’ing to Make a Difference

In addition to being an active exerciser, long time member, Heather Douglas has also been a great role model for young people.  For the past 5 years, Heather has been a youth mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters and has worked with at-risk youth to develop social competencies, self-esteem, positive decision-making and problem solving skills.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Heather has issued a pretty serious one to herself.  She has commited to completing the 2012 Ironman triathlon in Lake Placid next June.  Even more noteworthy, is that she has decided to seize this opportunity in order to raise funds for a cause that is both worthy and dear to her heart.  Heather has pledged to not only complete the Lake Placid Ironman, but also raise a goal of $14 000 to support youth mentoring through the United Way.

If you would like to support Heather in her challenge, you can click her for more details and ways to support.  Also, you can help spread the word, by “liking” this post on facebook.

Good luck Heather.  We’re all cheering for your success!
