THE STORY:

FAMILY REACH FOUNDATION wrote -

Family Reach Foundation provides a financial lifeline for families fighting cancer. Reach Athletes raise funds and awareness to support the Family Reach mission.

Across the country, Reach Athletes are pushing their limits to reach families fighting cancer. They are taking the journeys unknown, with every step, every pedal, every breath fueled by families battlings through the everyday challenges of cancer. Reach Athletes go where the silence is. They push further, harder, faster to keep these families in their homes, put food in their cabinets and help get them to and from life saving cancer treatments.

Cancer strikes hard, Reach Athletes strike back. Together we are a lifeline for families fighting cancer across the country.

A note from Justin: 

I've dedicated my entire life to helping others, in any way, shape, or form. At times, there would even be a price to pay just to help others. However, the word "price" is not the right word; because I couldn't be happier knowing that taking a hit in my life at times brought the greatest benefit to another person's life. My entire life has been a great transformation of myself, starting at the bottom of the ladder, going from a nobody to somebody that people admire.

Through the Family Reach Foundation, I found a new method of helping others while doing what I love: enduring strenuous physical activity, exceeding your limits, competition, and most importantly, helping those in need. I am running these races about a year after an ACL reconstruction surgery, which has been the greatest hurdle in my life. I am pleased to say that I have been training for a year now through the toughest pains and surpassing my limits to  achieve my goal of become a new person. And now that I have become a new person, I am even more pleased to say that now I can use my new self to catalyze positive changes in others’ lives.

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page! The more money I raise, the more items I will carry with me during the race such as tires and chains to metaphorically "carry the burden" that those who are actually suffering carry.

Being alone for a large portion of my life, I always used to think that I had to do everything myself...and what a flaw that was. The people around me let me get this far, and now I need YOUR help to make a change not to my life this time, but those others in need who just need that small push against their back.
