Dear Friend,

This year I am setting out on a journey to achieve my dream of becoming an Ironman triathlete. An Ironman triathlon is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run completed on one day in less than 17 hours. It is one of the toughest endurance events on the planet and requires many hours of training. Doing an Ironman triathlon has been a dream of mine ever since I was a little girl; I would watch Ironman Kona on ESPN and wish I was there. On July 27th I will be turning this dream into a reality by competing in Ironman Lake Placid.

The hours of training and sacrifice are a very personal to me, but my purpose in life is much bigger then my own personal dreams. In December my aunt Barbara unexpectedly passed away and her legacy of faith, giving and fitness inspired me to do something more with my dream. That is why I am raising money for Rahab’s Rope an organization that prevents and helps women and children in India who are victims of human trafficking. I will be traveling to India the week after my race to work with this organization and its efforts to prevent human trafficking. I will be working in a preschool, helping the women learn a vocation and assisting the organization in any needs.

My journey as a woman, triathlete and a person of faith has prepared me for these huge task that lie ahead. I hope to be of assistance to the community when I arrive in India, I hope to share my testimony of overcoming and reaching goals and I pray I can share the love I have in my heart.

My goal is to raise $5000 these funds will go to Rahab’s Rope 501(c)(3a) and your gift is tax deductible. If you would like to give directly to me for triathlon cost or travel cost please indicate that on the memo of your donation. Thank you so much for your generosity!

God Bless You,

Khaleeqa Rouse
