Seeking Sponsorship for Bone Island Half-Ironman Triathlon


I’m seeking sponsorship for the “Bone Island” half-ironman triathlon on January 12, 2013.  The “BONE ISLAND TRI” is a widely publicized  ironman triathlon put on each year in Key West, Florida. This year, I’ll be testing myself, participating in my 1st ever half-ironman triathlon.  This half-ironman will consist of a 1.2 mile swim, immediately followed by a 56 mile hand-cycle ride, immediately followed by a 13 mile racing wheelchair (pushrim) run.  Due to my disability, some have told me I may be biting off more than I can chew..  My answer is always the same: “You eat an entire elephant the same way you’d eat a chicken, one bite at a time.” I will absolutely complete this half ironman triathlon, one bite at a time.

Here is a link to the event online: .  I’ll be 1 of a thousand competitors, yet I’ll be the only competitor paralyzed in a wheelchair.  To put it lightly, I’ll stick out and all eyes will be on me, wondering how I’m going to finish the competition.  These circumstances provide ideal recognition to your company/organization..  I’m asking potential sponsor to cover the $225 registration fee, as well as 1 night lodging fee (not to exceed $200).  In return, I’ll promote your company/organization through the following:

1) Large vinyl stickers of your brand name on my race equipment (hand-cycle & racing wheelchair).

2) If sponsor chooses to provide, I’ll wear brand/logo on my tri-suit, which is worn throughout the entire 6 hour half-ironman triathlon.

2) After completion of half-ironman triathlon, I’ll blog about the event through my online publication The blog post will acknowledge and thank you for the support, linking to your website and/or noting anything you request.

4) Other promotional considerations can/will be made at sponsor’s request.

Please contact me at if interested in this opportunity.
