Ever wanted to do an Ironman but don’t want to pay $700+ to do it?
Come join the NO SWAG IRONKIWI Challenge presented by PRS Triathlon to support Jared Bynum Scholarship Program. This scholarship fund was established to help students who complete the mentoring program at Julia Landon College Preparatory and Leadership School, go on to finish high school in four years and are accepted to college. It will help them go to college and achieve their dreams. Jared believed in being an encouraging and supporting role model for the young students that were a part of the school’s mentoring program. This scholarship focuses on those students who have overcome early childhood challenges and continued on through high school and to college. These students want to be something that they and their families can be proud of, something that brings joy to others.
