Barney Rice Memorial Fund

As you may or may not have seen in the April 2007 Triathlete Magazine, there have been 2 funds set up to memorialize Barney Rice, the triathlete who died at Ironman Florida last November:

There is a memorial foundation (to benefit underprivileged children), to which you can contribute online:

But there is a second memorial fund for his three children (one of whom has some type of ongoing medical condition), which is collecting donation checks by mail:

Barney Rice Memorial Fund
c/o DA Davidson & Co.
PO Box 128
Kalispell, MT 59903

Please be generous.

I'm glad they set these funds up for his family.

Did you ever hear the autopsy results? Did he have some sudden seizure or heart attack, or just drown because of inadequate course support?

I never heard any autopsy results.

Too terribly sad. I always think it could have been me, too.
