Ian Leonard


Goal: $5,000


FOX 9 Chief Meteorologist Ian Leonard lives his life through one simple run-on sentence; I love my life, I love my wife, I love my daughters and I love my dog...I kinda like the cat.

In the past 8 years Ian has recovered from a traumatic brain injury, defeated 3 rounds of cancer and learned how to empty the dishwasher. Ian has also finished 15 triathlons since 2018 including 4 half Ironman races and 2 full ironman races. Yet, through it all, his wife is most proud of the fact that Ian finally learned to empty the dishwasher.

In the past 18 years Ian and his wife have worked non stop to raise over $20 million for Special Olympics Minnesota plunging into ice cold lakes and hosting the Bad Pants Open golf tournament along with his friends at the Minnesota PGA. Ian would like to nap a little more on the weekends but other than that he has just one question for you: “What have you done for someone else today?”

Ian is excited to play 100 holes this year at The Loop at Chaska and looks forward to a new challenge!
