On August 25, 2013 Dave Nazaroff, 8 time Ironman and Co-Founder of the Ride to Give will compete at Ironman Canada in Whistler, BC. We have decided to dedicate that days race to Hawk Harrison, a sweet little boy from an even sweeter family. We met the Harrisons while in GA at the final mile of this years Ride, and we were so impressed by their devotion to Hawk, their unwavering faith and their interest in helping others. One of the sweetest things we noticed was every day Hawk's Dad John hand draws the tape that holds his feeding tube on his cheek...one day a teddy bear, the next, a race car, etc. Here is Hawk's story: "On December 4, 2012, when Hawk was only 3 weeks old, he sustained a massive spontaneous brain hemorrhage. Hawk is an only child, a product of many prayers and the miracle of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Since that horrible day when he was life flighted to Egleston Children's hospital he has had six brain surgeries, 4 shunt revisions, infection in his Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF), multiple blood clots, and has spent over 100 days in the hospital. Praise the Lord Hawk is now home and getting better every day." But there is still a long road to go. Please help us provide a ramp on the Harrisons home, a wheelchair accessible bathroom and a therapy room for him to thrive in. Then follow us on August 25 as Dave swims 2.4 miles, rides 112 miles, then completes a full marathon..."doing it" for Hawk!
