UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming support (allowing us to meet our original goal in under 30 days) we are increasing the target funding goal from $10,000 to $20,000. Thank you so much for your support to the Chevaliers!
Tim has impacted thousands of lives around the world through his daily life, job, and ministry of selfless service. Now it’s our turn to have a small impact on his life. Tim began experiencing unusual symptoms in late 2019 and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in January 2021. His condition has significantly declined but he is still working as much as possible as a construction foreman. In addition to this life-altering diagnosis Tim will undergo shoulder surgery on July 20 to increase his upper body mobility which at present is essentially limited to one arm.
Though Christian Healthcare Ministries will cover some cost for the operation, he needs to cover the cost for the subsequent physical therapy and the ongoing medication costs for his Parkinson’s Disease treatments which are not covered. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Tim to help with these expenses. Will you join us in helping Tim?
We are going to “Tri for Tim” by completing an Iron-distance Triathlon on July 31.
2.4 mile swim.
112 mile bike.
26.2 mile run.
We are going the Iron-distance for Tim—a total of 140.6 miles in the water, on our bikes, and on our feet. We are doing this for Tim because we love him dearly and want to help. We both love endurance sports such as ultra-running and long-distance triathlons. We have the privilege to serve alongside Tim as members of his church, and Matthew and Tim are in the same church small group. Tim has been a blessing to us in countless ways and this is a small yet tangible way hope to be a blessing to him and his family.
We’d love for others to join us as we “Tri for Tim” – pick your sport, set a big goal, and invite your friends to give to support Tim. You (and your friends) are welcome to join us for any part of the swim, bike, and/or run on July 31. And if sports are not your thing, just give and come out and watch! Thanks to the generosity of the I Do It For Foundation, every dime goes directly to Tim – no transaction/processing fees deducted from your gift.
Swim: Start time: 5:00am. The pool swim will take place at the Half Mile Lake Community Pool.
Bike: Start time: Approximately 7:00am. We will bike from the Half-Mile Lake Community Pool to the Swamp Rabbit Trail in downtown Greenville, SC. Our “headquarters” for the ride will be Shelter 6 in Cleveland Park. We will pass by the shelter on each loop for nutrition, aid, and any needed rest. There is parking, a playground and a sand volleyball court at the shelter.
Run: Start time: Approximately 2:00pm. The running route will be loops on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and will pass by the shelter on each loop.
Post-Race Picnic: 7:00pm. Come join us and Tim for a celebration picnic dinner! (Please bring your own food.)
