IRONMAN 70.3 Eagleman No Match for Team World Animal Protection

July 07 2017

Our supporters swam, biked, and ran to raise money for animals around the world.

On Sunday, June 11, 2017, Team World Animal Protection joined the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 Eagleman race in Cambridge, MD.

Temperatures were in the 90s and not a cloud was in the sky as our racers completed the course’s swimming, biking, and running portions. Despite the stifling heat, our team kept cool – and together they raised more than $20,000 to help suffering animals.

“I decided to support World Animal Protection because I was drawn to the idea of being a part of something much bigger than myself,” explained Ali Rubnitz. “World Animal Protection represents one of the most important causes to me.”

“I definitely thought about all the animals and my own pup as I was competing,” Ali added. “The animals’ stories were so inspirational…I kept thinking of the suffering they have had to go through and that I could do my little part to help even if it was competing and fundraising.”

We couldn’t be more proud of our Eagleman team. Congratulations to Ali, Amy, Beth, Jeff, Jonathan, Matt, and Sherri for such an amazing race!
