Help Rod's Racing Win a Spot at Ironman World Championships!

Monday, June 4, 2012

Recently, I have become involved with Rod's Racing, an American-based charity that raises money for orphans with Down's Syndrome with Reece's Rainbow Adoption Ministry.  Each year, they sponsor one child in the hopes of raising $10,000 to offset adoption fees.  I have become a team member and you can too if you are interested.

Today, I received a letter from Brad Murray, the founder of Rod's Racing, with an update about the charity winning a spot on the Ironman World Championships.  This would mean HUGE press opportunity for the group.  Brad is asking you to click on the video as much as you can before June 18th. You simply need to donate your time to help this amazing cause.

Here is the latest update from Brad:

My Dear Family and Friends,

As you may already know, Nash and I recently made a 90 second video to raise awareness for Orphan with Down syndrome.  We entered this video into a contest sponsored by Ironman.  I'm excited to announce that mine and Nash's video has made it to the final round of voting!  Out of 105 videos, we are part of a group of 15 finalists!  Starting TODAY through June 18 public voting takes place.  Winners will get to race in the Ironman World Championship as a media athlete which means this will be an opportunity for our story to be shared on NBC's nationally televised Ironman broadcast this year.  This is our opportunity to tell the story of the many orphans with Down syndrome desperately waiting for a family to find them!

We need your help!  Please help us in the following ways:

-Vote as much as possible each day from an many devices as possible, home computer, work computer, laptop, phone, etc (only two short weeks for voting)(you can vote as much as you like each day by refreshing your browser after voting)

-Regularly share the video link to your wall on Facebook asking your friends to Share and Vote daily

-Forward this email to as many people as possible.

This is so much more than winning a competition. This is our chance to literally have these children's story reach millions of people!  This is our best chance to help as many of these children that are in urgent need.

Here's the link to the video:

I genuinely thank each of you for taking the time to Vote and Share this message!  I'd also like to share a blog post I recently made talking about the circumstances of these kids.  This is why I'm so passionate about helping:

I'll keep you updated as to our progress!  Have a great day!

Brad Murray
