Broad line of performance-oriented athletic shoes seller Saucony Inc announced that Saucony sponsored triathlete, Heather Fuhr, in winning her fifth Ironman Lake Placid Triathlon, donated $5,000 to the Lake Placid Child Care Committee.

"I have been fortunate enough to be able to make a living doing what I love and to be able to give something back to the community is a wonderful feeling," said Fuhr, a Saucony sponsored athlete for eight years and a member of the Tri-Dubai triathlon team.

The LPCCC provides affordable after school care for children of working parents. LPCCC is a not-for-profit organization that strives to minimize costs to parents through donations.The win was Fuhr's first Ironman title in two years, since she last won in Placid.
