Cervia, Italy - September 16, 2023
Hello there, I'm Sean!
Eleven years ago, I returned to Austin after a ten day trip that had me traveling through Europe, Japan and China. I had been traveling overseas extensively for a few years – mostly for work. During this particular trip, I had logged over 40 hrs in flight time alone!
I was exhausted and out of shape from too much work, lots of happy hours, client dinners and events, and very little, if any focus on health and nutrition. I had finally reached the point of being sick and tired, of feeling sick and tired. I decided it was time to take real action. Little did I know, a single internet search would set me off on a journey that would change my life forever – in ways I could never have imagined or planned for. This is my story…
Charity I'm Supporting.
Your mantra through your cancer battle and after, are truly words to live by, and I can’t wait to see what your next chapter in all this will be! In my opinion, when things get tough, “Choosing Joy” is truly is the only way to move forward.
~ Tyler Sullivan (Rhett’s mommy)
Many of my friends in the data center & real estate industry know Tyler & Ryan Sullivan (aka Rhett’s mommy & daddy), and the foundation they started after they tragically lost their beautiful 2.5 month beautiful baby boy, Rhett, in September, 2017 .
After grieving and mourning the loss of their baby boy, Tyler and Ryan chose to use their experience to help others that would face similar circumstances. In doing so, they turned tragedy on its head by seeking the silver linings that would give greater purpose to Rhett’s all too short time on this earth.
For the past 4 years, I have supported their foundation through sponsorship of their annual golf event. But, I hope to do so much more through this Ironman journey with your support, an dI’ll be thinking about Rhett and his family every step of the way.
The Rhett Sullivan Foundation is a non profit foundation that aids families who experience unexpected early child loss, with financial assistance, grief support and resources. The loss of a young child is traumatic and touches many families within our communities. Their goal is to provide relief in their time of need. 100% of all proceeds go DIRECTLY to families in need!
