Iron Man Tim Iyoob Raises More Than $1,700 for Children

Tim Iyoob 2When people tell him he’s crazy, Tim Iyoob doesn’t disagree. “There are two things I am crazy about,” he says. “Challenging myself physically and mentally, and helping children in need.”

Thanks to the super human efforts of Tim, two Bright Spaces for Colorado’s Coalition for the Homeless are much closer to being a reality. Tim, who is a manager at the Bright Horizons Contact Center in Broomfield, CO, recently completed the 2015 Boulder Iron Man competition after finishing a half Iron Man in 2014.

While Tim was officially listed as Did Not Finish (he was less than a mile away from the finish line at the 17-hour cutoff), “That was one of the coolest experiences that I’ve had in my life,” he said of the electricity at the finish line. “There were 25 people running me in.”

“I’m still proud that I finished, and I’m going to sport my medal with pride,” he said. “But I’ll be back next year to finish under 17.”

Tim swam 2.4 miles at the Boulder Reservoir, did a 112-mile bike course with amazing mountain views (and climbs), ran 26.2 miles, and raised more than $1,700 for the Bright Spaces.

“The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children is important to me, because I believe children are the future,” says Tim. “We must build strong children by supporting and developing them as much as we can. The Foundation does this, and that is why I support their cause.”
