Ironman Competitor with Diabetes Encourages Others to Live Without Limits; Competes in Ironman Arizona in Tempe
Date:4/3/2008

Thursday, April 10 through Saturday, April 12, 2008

(Race Day: April 13 at 7 am)

VALLEY FORGE, Pa., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO/ WHAT: "Iron Andy" Holder, an Ironman Arizona competitor who was

diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 36, will participate in

this Sunday's triathlon to encourage others who have chronic

conditions such as diabetes to properly manage their condition

and to live without limits.

After his diagnosis in 2005, Andy was determined not to let the

disease hold him back and then decided to become an Ironman

competitor -- an extraordinary test of strength, will and

endurance.

In the past year, Andy has traveled around the country to

inspire others in the "Living Without Limits" campaign,

including a group of military personnel from Vandenberg Air

Force Base in California. Three officers, who have trained

since meeting Andy last year, will compete with him at Ironman

Arizona.

The Ironman competition requires Andy to swim 2.4 miles, bike

112 miles and run a full marathon of 26.2 miles. His ultimate

goal is to swim, bike and run his way to the Ironman World

Championship held every October in Kona, Hawaii.

WHEN: Thursday, April 10 -- Saturday, April 12

10:00 am -- 3:00 pm (Call to schedule an interview)

WHERE: Ironman Village

Tempe Beach Park

Tempe, Ariz.

WHY: Iron Andy travels around the country bringing his inspiring

message to hundreds of people living with chronic conditions.

With the Good Neighbor Pharmacy network of community

pharmacists, Andy is spreading the message of "Managing

Diabetes: Living Without Limits."

Not everyone with diabetes can become an Ironman competitor,

but by following Andy's example of exercising, eating right and

closely monitoring his condition, people with diabetes or other

chronic conditions can lead healthy, productive lives -- and

live without limits.

Andy is available for interviews on April 11 and 12. To

schedule an interview, call Nora Beger at

AmerisourceBergen/Good Neighbor Pharmacy at 610-727-2384. For
