The mission of teamindure is to make sure “No One Races Alone!”


On Sept 29th Pete Barusic, Joe Matthews, and Walt Maxwell have set out to individually take on Ironman Chattanooga 144.6. We have joined forces and have set out to raise awareness and  $20,000 as we honor all those living with Crohn’s & Colitis.  

We have learned over the years that no physical obstacle placed in front of us compares to the daily struggles those with illness face. We look forward to do all we can to raise awareness and money for this cause.  We pray that you feel inclined to help us by making a financial contribution!  Every dollar you donate has the power to make a difference.  Let us honor those with illness and remind them that “No One Races Alone!”
