IronMan Athlete Puts Some Muscle into the Fight against Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Iron Man

On September 9th, 2007 Lisa Witzlib, of Atlanta, Georgia raced in honor and support of The Hope and Light Foundation in Ironman Wisconsin. Lisa spent countless hours preparing for the competition with 6 training days in 100 degree weather, 2 yellow jacket stings while riding her bike and over 106,000 yards swam. What kept her mind, body and spirit strong during months of intense training and, ultimately, during the race was the reminder of why she was competing. "Babies battling this disease are in the race of a lifetime. The real victory will come when a cure is found. Until then, racing 140.6 miles in honor of these children is the least I can do to help." -Lisa Witzlib, Ironman Athlete
