This weekend, Moscow's Shelly Ruspakka, Cat Harner, and Arch Harner participated in a virtual 70.3 Ironman to raise money for Ironman for Anna, an organization the supports childhood warriors through any financial hardships that may arise during the years these children will battle childhood cancer. Shelly, Cat, and Arch were originally set to compete in the 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and 13.1 mile run in Couer d'Alene, but the CDA 70.3 Ironman was postponed and later canceled this summer due to COVID 19. These athletes participated in honor of Tommy Harner, who lost his 2 year battle to cancer in April of 2019.
