WHAT IS PROJECT GIVING, & WHY DO WE HOST A RETRO NIGHT GLOW? We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who has an undying and fervent passion to “Build Bridges of Hope” for families in our LOCAL community who are suffering from chronic medical illnesses. We are entirely donation-driven, and our race/event is our largest fund raiser of the year! Most recently, we have “Built Bridges of Hope” for families with children with life-threatening brain tumors, mothers with sarcomas, fathers with renal failure, grandmothers with Alzheimer’s Disease, and grandfathers with cancer (and many, many other precious families). We “Build Bridges of Hope” by providing mortgage/rental payments, funding travel expenses to and from medical treatments (plane tickets, food, gas, lodging), supplying payments for electricity/utilities, repairing vehicles, renovating homes, stocking pantries, holding a family’s hands, praying, and loving them into wholeness, as well as many other forms of meeting a family’s practical needs. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE OUR JOB OF SERVING, BLESSING, and LOVING THE MOST FRAIL, VULNERABLE, & BROKEN FAMILIES IN OUR COMMUNITY!!!

We have THE MOST PHENOMENAL, SACRIFICIAL, HARD WORKING race team of 25 different "chair" positions & an army of volunteers who are dedicated to bringing you the most high-quality, well-oiled, funnest race we possibly can!!!!!!

“ROARIN’ LIKE A LYON!!” (LORI’S STORY...)
My family has “drunk the Koolaid,” as we are all preparing for a 140.6 Ironman in Chattanooga, TN, on September 28 of this year... Lance, my father-in-law (Mike), sister-in-law (Lori), brother-in-law (Ryan), and me!! There is a beautiful miracle in the midst of all of this craziness. Her name is Lori Lyons, my sister-in-law.

A year ago, she was struck by a car while she was training for her first 70.3 Ironman triathlon competition. She fractured 10 bones in her body, was body casted, and in a wheelchair for months. (She has three small children.) After her difficult recovery, she was just beginning to train, again, when it was discovered she had a torn ACL in her knee (from the wreck). She went back into surgery and was “out of the game” another 6 months. Through the sweet grace of God and her pure grit and determination, Lori is training for her first FULL Ironman in Chattanooga on September 28th!! WHAT AN AMAZING FEAT!!!! Please, click this 3:47 minute video and be inspired to reach for dreams you think are impossible!!

Lori is turning what was meant to harm her into something good (Gen. 50:30) and is raising money for our Project Giving families through the Ironman Foundation in her INCREDIBLE COMEBACK!!! If you feel lead to support Lori and her journey, please know that Ironman gives Project Giving 100% of the money contributed (if you click the button that gives you that option).

WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU, LORI, OUR HERO!!! SHE’S “ROARIN’ LIKE A LYON!!!”
