The Challange is to promote Down Syndrome Awareness
1. You get 1% Better for 30-days
2. Help someone do the same
Each year, a select group of athletes from around the world race through the IRONMAN Foundation's Your Journey, Your Cause program to support the charities of our choice. Mine include Down Syndrome, RODS & Special Olympics. We share a passion to create positive change in the world and prove "Anything is Possible"
1% Better every day for a year impossible>>> POSSIBLE
If you start walking 100 steps and get 1% Better for 1 year, you will be walking 3,700 steps.
If you start with 1,000 steps, in 1 year you will be walking a Marathon.
Imagine the impact of that on your health and well being?
Exercising your body while exercising your mind increases your intellectual capacity.
It also releases "happy drugs" that make you HAPPY.
Imagine the impact of being a little smarter and happier?
If you do it with a friend, you feed the craving we all have. Social connections.
You share a bond with someone that helps you both.
Join a local club and start an "Inclusion Revolution"
You influence what you focus on. If you wake up every day thinking "How do I get 1% Better today?" You will be infinitely better off than the alternative.
There is a large community of people with special needs. Reach out and touch someone. Make a positive difference in someone else's life and they will do the same for you.
Promote the message of "Getting 1% Better"; Being Positive; Helping someone else;
Let's make the world a better place for ourselves and others.
