Ironman Foundation Newton Running Charity Night at Lucky Pie

The past 2 years, my husband and I partnered up with a local restaurant, Lucky Pie in downtown Louisville, Colorado.  Last year we raised money for PCF - Athletes for a cure and this year for IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Henderson, Las Vegas.  The owners and managers know us by name since we moved here last May.  Well....with amazing pizza and beer specials (like pitcher of Avery IPA and a pepp pizza for $15 on Sundays and Mondays!!) who wouldn't go there.  It's a chill vibe and great food.  Also, next door is Sweet Cow....delicious ice cream.  The line wraps around the building every day!  It's nuts.

I approached the manager, Tony, about the IRONMAN Foundation silent auction raffle night again this year and he was so excited to have us.  One of the most amazing things about being involved with ironman, triathlons in general and being part of the newton running family is the people and connections we have made over the years and it grows and grows each race venue.  To coordinate the raffle items, I emailed out to all my clients, family and friends....and this came together....

More about our team.....

"The IRONMAN Foundation-Newton Running Triathlon Team was created to leave behind an influential legacy through philanthropy, volunteerism and grant making by supporting various athletic, community, education, health, human services and public benefit non-profit organizations in the communities where IRONMAN events are held. The Tri Team will help spread this mission and help change the paradigm of triathlon from a selfish sport into a selfless sport. In order to help change this concept of the sport, team members not only train long hours for their race season, but they act selflessly in serving others within the IRONMAN communities and within their own communities. By participating in community service projects, athletes create  a "greater good" throughout their 2013 race season."  Check out: www.triteamforgood.com
