My goal is to raise $5000 for the Hyperemesis Education & Research Foundation through my participation in the 2013 Lake Placid Ironman.
Any donation you can afford is greatly appreciated. You may donate any amount you like or you may like to consider some of the following amounts that are symbolic of what I would like to achieve:
- $12: about a dollar for every hour it will (hopefully) take me
- $45: $15 for each leg
- $140.60: a dollar for every mile of the race
- $240: about 2 cents for every calorie I’ll burn
I had originally set up a site with a charity registry with JustGive, but then I realized the registry would be charging separate fees in addition to taking 5% of all donations and I would rather the money went directly to the charity. As such, if you are able to make a donation I would ask you to do so directly to the charity (it’s tax deductable) and post on here the amount you have contributed (or email me). That way I can keep a tally of how close to the target we are.

If you aren’t able to donate there’s still a lot you can do! Raising awareness is one of the most important things that can be done for HG, so please read up on the condition and tell someone about it.
