David's 8 Week Ironman Challenge - Dreams2Live4

David's 8 Week Ironman Challenge

As someone who has always embraced taking on difficult challenges, nothing seems bigger than tackling an Ironman triathlon (4km ocean swim, followed by a 180km cycle and finishing with a full 42km marathon) on 8 weeks of training in order to support the amazing work of Dreams2Live4.

I went through a difficult time as a business owner in the hospitality industry during Covid-19, but after meeting the CEO of Dreams2Live4 and hearing the incredible stories and bravery of the “dreamers” living with metastatic cancer, I realised that I was incredibly privileged to even have the choice to take responsibility for my mental and physical health, which had been deteriorating due to constant stress and worry.

In order to show support for those living with uncertainty, I decided to ignore my ego and take on a challenge that would involve suffering and pain, even with the advised minimum 6-12 months of proper training, in order to raise as much money as possible to allow dreams to come true for people living without the privilege of time.

My goal is to raise at least $50,000 for this amazing charity, which will allow them to support many adults 17+

living with metastatic cancer in making their dreams come true. I will also match the single largest donation made before I tackle Ironman Cairns on June 12th, 2022.
