Welcome to the fundraising page for Nicole.

  In my quest for continued growth as a person, I am taking the challenge to participate in Escape from Alcatraz in June of 2015.  I truly believe that when we get out of our comfort zone in life, we grow the most. I have witnessed this growth in myself over the last four years being part of the "Fit Chicks", a fitness support group for women that inspires and motivates women to run, bike and swim. My sister-in-law is one of my team leaders and she has inspired me to challenge myself on many occasions. I started with some 5k runs, to some

10k's to some half marathons. Then two years ago, I jumped head first into some triathlons. Although I could swim, I had a Great Fear to swim in deep water where I couldn't touch my feet. This fear I overcame through training with my Fit Chick mentors. Then I went on and competed in a Sprint Tri then an Olympic-Tri most recently. Wow, what an incredible feeling knowing that I conquered these fears, and self doubt, to move through these challenges.

Being the top notch athlete is not my goal for now. The goal for me, is to participate, inspire and finish this event.  I believe I am that engine that says "I think I can, I think I can"....... And somehow I do it!!!!  I feel like a world class champion when I cross that finishing line and tell myself "I did it"!!!!  When people say, Wow, I could never do that"........I tell them I'm living testimony that they absolutely can do it. These accomplishments  have inspired me in my personal life to be a more confident, more positive, and a better mom to my 11 year old son, Joey.

As I prepare for my training over the next six months, I have an opportunity to help raise funds for the non-profit R.O.C.K., Real Options For City Kids. This is a non-profit organization that offers in-school and after school programs for children from 5-17 years old that come from single parent families and lower social economic backgrounds. They teach leadership, mentorship and have sports and fitness activities. Please help me raise money to help this great organization. Your donation is tax deductible.
