Ironman Athlete Donates Fundraising to SOS Scholarships

Boyle completes his first Ironman triathlon

[Chattanooga, Tennessee] Would you support Women's MInistries scholarship program by swimming 2.4 miles, biking 116 miles, and then running a full marathon of 26.2 miles−in one day? Seventh-day Adventist Ed Boyle did when he completed the Chattanooga Ironman triathlon competition, September 28, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Boyle donated his fundraising efforts for the race to the General Conference Women’s Ministries scholarship fund, which provides scholarships for Adventist women worldwide. As an employee at the Review and Herald Publishing Association, Boyle worked with the production of the annual women's devotional book and is "impressed with the quality of the program, the great need among young women within our church to achieve higher education, and the caliber of leadership in GC Women's Ministries."

You may not complete a triathlon, but you can show your appreciation of his extraordinary endeavor when you donate to GC Women's Ministries scholarship fund in honor of our favorite Ironman.
