Camp Boggy Creek is proud to announce international triathlete Michael Poole as the Grand Marshal of the 4th Annual Challenge Ride. This event, presented by Wyndham Vacation Ownership and Wishes by Wyndham, will be held today, September 6, 2014.
All funds raised from this event will benefit Camp Boggy Creek, serving children with serious illnesses and their families by making it possible for them to experience the adventure of camp in an environment capable of meeting their medical needs, at no cost to the families.
Michael Poole knows what it is like to live with a serious illness, after being diagnosed with epilepsy in 2009. His first seizure held him back from Junior World Championships and threatened his career. However Poole has worked hard to overcome this disease. Despite a recent injury, he is currently ranked third for the Lifetime Tri-Series, the premier pro-triathlon racing circuit in the US. Poole also serves as a national spokesman for the Epilepsy Foundation Athletes vs. Epilepsy program.
