IRONMAN Triathlon Charity

As many of you know for the last few years I have been training for a variety of athletic events. Recently I have completed the California International Marathon, Rancho Seca Half IRONMAN, Shamrock’N Half Marathon, Golden State Triathlon, and countless 5K and 10K races. I am now training for what is possibly the hardest race of my life, a full distance IRONMAN. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it is a 2.5 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and finishing it with a 26.2 mile run. I will complete this endurance test on June 24, 2012 in Idaho. Each of my previous races usually support a local cause or charity that the sponsors have chosen. While considering upping my game and going for a full distance IRONMAN an opportunity to do more than race presented itself. Knowing that God always uses me in a way I couldn’t have dreamed I knew this was His plan for me. I am thankful for each day that the Lord gives me. My friend Jake Larsen was putting together a team of men to race and raise awareness and money for Fireproof Ministries and XXXChurch.
XXXChurch is an organization dedicated to sharing God’s love with those that usually are subjects and not people. These people are the men and women who are victims or captives of the sex industry. Whether they are working in it, addicted to it, held prisoner and forced into it, or impacted by it in any way they have support. XXXChurch travels across the country and rescues those who want to get out, those who need help to stop, and enabling them to move beyond their past. They even rent a booth at conventions and offer Bibles with covers specifically for those in attendance, emblazoned with the cover “Jesus loves Porn Stars.” The Bible says that Jesus loves everyone, even what society would consider the least of these. God has a place and love for all of His children, not just those who are living the perfect life. Because in reality none of is living the perfect life. We are all sinners and yet we are still loved. I ask that you consider sponsoring me and make a tax deductible donation. I just need 140 friends to donate a dollar for each mile I race, A small $140 donation to help save marriages or innocent children from the vulgarity and filth of porn. Donations can be made directly onto the secure website https://www.myxxxchurch.com/campaigns/view/jeffdaplumber.html or a check can be mailed to PO Box 201 Citrus Heights, CA 95611. You also can learn more information about what XXXChurch and Fireproof Ministries is and does at XXXChurch.com. You can also view my videos that I have made on my website, YouTube or Facebook. Every thought, prayer and donation will help me succeed in this journey. Thank you for your support. I know with partners like you many lives, families and people will be impacted. God Bless!
