    Hi Matt,
    You probably don’t know me personally, but I know most of your fraternity brothers. I graduated from Butler in ’93 and was the Delt House favorite in ’90. I’ve been following your story through friends and your website for several years. You are such and inspiration through your courage, wonderful attitude and zest for life!
    Since graduating from Butler, I’ve had many adventures and now live with my husband and 2 children in Charlotte, NC. Over the past 10 years, I’ve developed a passion for competing in triathlons. For a long time, I focused on long distance events, but after having my children, I switched to shorter ones and found that I am quite competetive at these distances.
    Recently, I found out that a friend of mine has been diagnosed with a form of ALS. One of the ways that she continues to feel empowered is through fundraising which she hopes will someday contribute to finding a cure. I have tried to think of all of the ways that I can support her. I keep coming back to the sport of triathlon. I’ve decided that I would like to participate in a half ironman distance this fall (my first in about 8 years) and use my race to raise money to support ALS research.
    I would like to race as part of Team CureALS. Can you give me further information as to how I can participate?
    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Matt:

    I just visited your new website and noticed that your developing TEAM CureALS. I think this is a great idea.
    I’ve recently been competing in a number of triathlons and for 2007 I’m doing two Ironman 70.3 events in Orlando, Fl, and Benton Harbor, MI, as well as a number of other sprint and olympic distance events. My goal is to qualify for the 2007 Ford Ironman 70.3 World Championship in November.

    I look forward to raising funds for your foundation because I believe that helping ALS research will help push me to achieve my goal. Please send me more information.

    Regards,

    Paul Newsom
