$ 1,085 Raised

$9,000 Goal

Hi my name is Richard Zambrano,
Can you donate to help me buy a tandem bike? I have ventured into this wonderful sport called triathlons! In the beginning my brother-in-law asked me to do a race and said he would be my guide. I told him no, I was not interested in swimming. I finally gave in and said yes, I would be more than happy to give it a try! I have an eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, which is a deterioration of the retina. So my struggles are a little hard with triathlons, I stand about 5 foot 10, and weigh about 180 pounds.
I am the Stoker on a tandem bike which is the person in the back. Because of my long legs most tandems are very cramped for somebody with my leg length and height. So I am asking for help to raise money to buy a tandem bike. I currently have a tandem bike that is too small for me and it’s very hard for me on long rides. I would like to raise $9,000 to buy a frame, I have all the other components to put on the bike, I just need a frame to fit me. Thank you for all your help and for reading my story!
I have a goal of reaching the Paralympics in the Olympic distance or half Iron Man distance triathlon. For now my goal is to conquer Ironman Texas 2020! And with your help getting a tandem bike that will fit me will help make this possible!
Thank you so much,
Richard Zambrano
