About Jon Kaplan
Jon Kaplan is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he attended Central Catholic High School in downtown Oakland. He recently graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Industrial Design and Business Economics, and he is currently pursuing a career in business consulting. Outside of career and academics he is interested in all facets of physical and mental well-being of the individual. This passion has allowed him to pursue mental and physical challenges to reach a state of discomfort, where true personal development occurs. Jon is ecstatic at the opportunity to work with BIAPA after a successful initial fundraising effort surrounding Ironman 70.3 Wilmington N.C. After over a year off from organized racing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, racing is back and there is no better way to reach ultimate discomfort than in Leadville 100!
