As I’ve said many times in the past, I could not do what I do without the support network I have in place. This includes family and friends, guides and sponsors, all of whom play their own crucial roles in my success.
The Naperville Noon Lions Club has supported me from the beginning, helping to ensure I could attend my first PT camp. Since that point, they have been in my corner and helped to enable my growth. I am extremely grateful for their continued support for the 2019 season!
I am just one of a long list of people and projects that the Club supports through its fundraising. I will be out on the streets next Friday to help with that as part of their Candy Day. If you are in downtown Naperville near North Central College, please come out and support them. Anything you donate will help so many like me!

Some of you may have had family tell you to go play in traffic. Some of them may have been frustrated; some of them may have been serious. But that’s exactly what I did yesterday and will do again tomorrow.
No, no, I’m not crazy [no comments from the peanut gallery….]. I’m out in traffic helping to collect money for the Lions Club Candy Day. The local Club helped to support me in my very first Triathlon event in 2015, and have helped to support me since. I also know that everything collected helps to support other people with visual disabilities, so I’m extremely happy to go out and play in traffic.
Throughout the rest of the weekend, you may see Lions out on the street in your neighborhood. Even if it’s just spare change, PLEASE give what you can. Every little bit helps, and helps those who need it.
And again,a huge THANK YOU to the Naperville Noon Lions Club, who continue to support me in my Triathlon endeavors!
