In August, one of our friends Ange McGonigle decided she would complete an IronMan race in Mont Tremblant, QC. Ange also decided that she needed some motivation, so she graciously decided to raise money for ALS. Ange completed the race, and raised over $300o for ALS and the Believe Army. Thank you so much Ange! We hope to be at your next IronMan!
