I TRI PROUD with T2.

Welcome to the TEAM TO END AIDS (T2EA) fundraising page of Meaghan Stainback. 


T2EA is a training program to help amateur athletes (like myself) train for endurance races, and it is run as a fundraising arm of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC).


I’m asking for your financial support so I can reach my 2019 T2EA fundraising goal of $3,000 as I prepare to join the elite ranks of full Ironman finishers by completing the 140.3 Ironman Louisville on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019. 



I couldn't have imagined finishing the 2018 Chicago Marathon, two Ironman 70.3 races, 5 Chicago Triathlons, and a full distance Aquabike without the unflappable support of the T2EA coaches and staff, plus all the encouragement of my fellow athletes in training. I am touched each day by the perseverance of my T2EA family, and I know I could not have accomplished these things without their support, and support from people like you.


HIV and AIDS are not in the news much these days, but an estimated 28,000 people throughout Chicago are living with HIV and need equitable access to services, such as housing, health care and case management, in order to stay healthy. That's why I'm racing with TEAM TO END AIDS (T2) in the Chicago Triathlon on August 25, 2019. T2 is training me to cross the finish line while raising funds to support the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC), which connects people to the services they need and is working with other organizations throughout the state to get Illinois to reach zero new HIV transmissions by 2030.



In 2016 alone, 839 Chicagoans were diagnosed with HIV. While this is the lowest number of new HIV transmissions in years, many more still don't know they are living with the virus. I am committed to swimming, biking, and running the distance in August to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma attached to HIV, all while benefiting a cause I am passionate about.



Help me cross the finish line while helping thousands of people across Illinois! Donate to my T2 campaign today. Just click the DONATE TO ME button on the right.
