After hearing about the Chungba school project, Carrie Regan decided to help raise funds and awareness by taking on the Ironman Triathlon.
“Iron Carrie” inspired us all with her unstoppable spirit as she sailed through eight months of hard training to prepare for the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 25.2 mile run. Incredibly, this first-time triathlete managed a bright smile in every picture taken during the 14 hour ordeal! Carrie also raised over $16,000 for the construction of the new Chungba Middle School. Carrie carried with her a message of hope throughout the race–brightly colored prayer flags handmade by the Chungba kids. Carrie has given the Chungba Middle School Capital Campaign an enormous push forward. To learn more about Carrie’s campaign, please see her webpage.
