#BEYONDMYSELFPROJECT

ATHLETIC PROJECT TO EMPOWER WOMEN & SAVE CHILDREN

ATHLETIC PROJECT TO EMPOWER WOMEN & SAVE CHILDREN

When: October 19 - November 21, 2020
Official Guinness World Record Attempt: 
34 full Ironman-distances in 34 consecutive days (female) 
Fundraising to make a difference, supporting: children, women, people with PTSD. 
Where: Long Beach
Distances: 2.4-mile swim + 112-mile cycling + 26.2-mile run
each day for 34 consecutive days. 

WHY

In the middle of a global health crisis when people are dealing with unprecedented mental and financial challenges. When positivity, motivation and hope is at a low supply and depression, overwhelm and uncertainty prevail, we need people that can stand up and be examples of something extraordinary, something so positive that it inspires and starts a change reaction and increases people's willingness to act and make a difference. 

 

With the far-reaching consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic manifesting every day, we are experiencing a time when a large percentage of people are losing their jobs, applying for unemployment, struggling to stay motivated, when almost everything that used to be normal, rewarding and fulfilling such as eating dinner in a restaurant and celebrating a birthday or graduation with friends and family is "cancelled". 

PURPOSE

Dedicate this project to helping individuals who are struggling with PTSD, abuse and help them transform their lives. Do this by bringing awareness, raising and donating money to non-profit organizations that are making a difference. 

All proceeds will go directly to the following:

 

1) Downtown Women’s Center

2) Children’s Institute

3) Paws 4 Success (PTSD focused)

4) SJVRC (for abused children in Philippines and underprivileged children in Vietnam )

 

Shangrila Rendon: "Others race for achievement, for me it's about fulfillment. I'm fulfilling my personal dream. Making a positive global impact. Let's re-set what's possible. Let's all take action and contribute to something that matters. This project aims to accomplish something "Beyond Myself".

ABOUT

Shangrila Rendon: "I'm currently working on a new project with an intention to make a difference for others, inspire and motivate action. Right now when all the races are cancelled and moved to next year (2021), a lot of people are finding it difficult to keep their commitment to their health and fitness. There is also a sense of lack of power to do things, grow and improve. What people are not realizing is that feeling trapped and limited by the current situation doesn't need to derail and postpone their goals and dreams. 

 

If everyone continues to postpone their goals and dreams until an undetermined time in the future, they put themselves in a state that lacks joy, inspiration and sense of purpose. Sadly, many even end up falling into a state of depression and hopelessness. 

 

I want to do something about that. 

 

If people saw someone in action setting an example, taking the lead and doing something extraordinary, my hope is that it would spark something in them and they will realize they CAN make things happen even despite the current limitations. They will realize that challenging times require creative and resourceful solutions. It may even encourage them to become responsible for what happens with their goals and plans. Taking purposeful action inspires, generates excitement in our lives and causes others to want to also contribute. Together we can make a difference!"

SHANGRILA HAD A HORRIBLE PAST

she was sexually abused for 14 years as a child and was sexually assaulted at 24. She considered herself a living dead and was hopeless. She lost trust and hated everyone, including her loved ones. She was diagnosed with extreme depression, PTSD, and struggled with eating disorder for 10 years. She was also abusing alcohol; she didn’t care about her life, health, finances, or safety. She used all of these to numb herself from the painful emotions and flashbacks that she wanted to escape from. That was her rock bottom.

SHE DISCOVERED TRIATHLON

She discovered triathlon and used it as a fuel to change and move forward from her past. She was a non-runner, non-cyclist, and non-swimmer at 24 yet she became an inspirational athlete regardless. She trained hard, mastered it and aimed high.

HER MISSION

Shangrila Rendon represents and stands up for the abused women and children everywhere, bringing awareness to their cause, creating inspiration and motivation in those who are too afraid to speak.

 

Shangrila says: “I want to give hope to other survivors with a similar past that we can all transform our lives to something amazing and that life is (or can be) beautiful. I want to show that dreams do come true even if you don’t believe it at times of unbearable struggle.”
