Telford in Contest to Enter Ironman

Telford in Contest to Enter Ironman

Fair Lakes resident BethAnn Telford was diagnosed with a Stage III brain tumor in 2005, and is still fighting for her life. But she works full time and, via her nonprofit fundraising organization, Team BT, she raises money for the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS).

Telford also runs marathons and participates in endurance races, and one of her dreams is to compete in this October’s Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. To win a slot in it, she entered the Ironman Kona Inspired "Anything is Possible" Video Competition sponsored by Yurbuds.

Her video was chosen in the first round of the contest and must now compete in the semi-finals as part of the Round 3 grouping. From this grouping, two videos will be selected for entry into the Ironman World Championships based on the number of online votes received.

Online voting began July 4 and continues through July 18. To help make Telford’s dream a reality, go to:
