Auction Item Description
This is THE tri-suit that I wore when I won the 2012 Ironman World Championships in Kona.........it has been washed by the way!

I will be donating all the money from the sale of this tri-suit to my charity of choice: the Blazeman Foundation for ALS. I have been supporting this charity since 2007 and every year I do something in a bid to raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. This year the multi-sport community lost a dear friend to many, Pete Zucker. I was fortunate to meet Pete and get to know a little of the impact his battle with this disease had on his family and friends. This one is for you Pete.

PLEASE be generous and PLEASE tell all your friends. Below is a little more about ALS and for further information about the Blazeman Foundation for ALS, please visit their website.

ALS is a progressive degenerative disease that attacks the motor neurons, or nerve cells, in the brain and spinal cord. Motor neurons control the movement of voluntary muscles. Death of the motor neurons makes it impossible for the brain to control muscles or signal them to move. As the muscles atrophy, it results in weakness and loss of coordination.

ALS is unpreventable, untreatable and incurable. ALS attacks otherwise healthy adults randomly and spontaneously. Once diagnosed, people with ALS have an average life expectancy of 2 - 5 years.
