Congratulations Team L.I.F.E. in the Ironman Wisconsin! Mike takes 3rd in the Janus Charity Challenge!


September 13th, 2010 - Yesterday 4 members of Team L.I.F.E. competed in the Ironman Wisconsin: Chris Clausen, Mike McLean, Randy Youngs, and Anna Laatsch.  Their places and finish times are listed below.  There were many, many spectators out there, and tons of volunteers helping to make sure athletes could get through the day.  A total of $14,234 was raised this year for Mike's entry in the Janus Charity Challenge, which was 3rd place among the athletes competing.  Taking 3rd place means that Janus will match $6,000 of those donations, which means over $20,000 will have been raised for the charity already this year!  Thanks again to everyone, and congratulations to Chris, Mike, Randy, and Anna!!
