Ironman Competitor to Raise Funds for Niemann-Pick Disease!

Ironman Mike Smith of Florida will compete in the Ford Ironman Triathlon in Coeur d’Alene (Idaho)on Sunday, June 27, to raise money and awareness for the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation.

The triathlon is the ultimate test of strength, endurance and determination, consisting of swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles, and running 26.2 miles. An Ironman certainly embodies the NNPDF motto — “Persevere!”

Mike’s fundraising goal is $3,000 and he hopes to raise enough to qualify for a Janus matching fund donation, as well. Visit Mike’s page to make a donation and read more about his motivation — his vivacious wife, Annie OConnor-Smith, who is affected by Niemann-Pick Disease Type B.
