Ironman Competitors Raised $4000 for Paper Kite!

18 September 2011

On August 28, 2011,  Dr. Sukhi Muker, Deanna Tomlinson, and Lanny Taschuk competed in one of the most challenging single day sporting events, Ironman Canada. Held in Penticton, BC, these 3 competitors completed a 3.8Km swim, a 180Km bike, and a 42.2Km run all in one day. In addition to competing in Ironman Canada, they also raised approximately $4000 dollars for Paper Kite Children’s Foundation. Half of the donations came from supporters of the athletes, and the other half was from a partnership formed by Dr. Sukhi and Organic Lives.

All of us at Paper Kite would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Deanna Tomlinson, Lanny Taschuk, Organic Lives and especially to our Board Member, Dr. Sukhi, for their contribution to our cause of helping orphans in Bihar. We also want to congratulate the three competitors on successfully completing Ironman Canada!
