First Ever Motivation Man Olympic & Half Iron Distance Triathlon


The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is excited to announce their participation in the new Motivation Man Olympic & Half Iron Distance Triathlon in West Palm Beach. The event will take place on June 1, 2013 and CCFA’s local Florida Chapter is recruiting triathletes now to join their team, “Team South Florida”. Triathlon participants will swim, bike and run their way through two amazing races, the Motivation Man 1/2 Iron and an Olympic Distance Triathlon, as well as experience the waterfront finish line, like no other, offering one of the most amazing Triathlon courses in the world. “We are incredibly excited to be a part of this event and expand our team of athletes accepting the challenge to find a cure,” said Rachel Kramer, Team Challenge Endurance Manager with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s Florida Chapter. “Many of our athletes have been personally touched by Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Team South Florida will help CCFA raise much needed awareness and funds to support the goal of finding a cure for these diseases that affect more than 1.4 million in America.” With registration, Team South Florida participants will receive a one-night stay at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach, transportation to and from the race, race registration, a race jersey and gear, as well as a ticket into the pre-race dinner and race after party.
