THE STORY:

​My dearest friends and family,

 

As many of you know, running has always been a personal passion of mine.  The method to my madness; a moving meditation; it has long been my fail-safe secret weapon for complex problem solving and unrivaled freedom of thought.  

This summer I took my running to the alpine wilderness of the PNW.  The Cascade mountains as my jungle gym, I got to time-travel back to being a child.  Throwing my body down steep switch backs, all my attention focused on maneuvering a myriad of hidden tree roots, making split second calculations on just how far - and how fast - I could skip from from one granite rock to another.  Miles from no where, it was the ultimate freedom of play, the ultimate escape.  

However when you're miles from no where, it's easy to ignore what's going on in the rest of the world.  And for the first time in my life, I have an chance to run for something bigger than myself.

This Sunday I will run 26.2 miles for Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere.  I will be running for a people whose homes have been washed away by hurricanes and leveled by earthquakes; running for a people whose own mountains and forests have been obliterated by deforestation. 

I have been invited to run the NYC marathon on behalf of J/P HRO - an NGO who's reach extends far beyond emergency relief efforts. Established in 2010, their mission is to promote sustainable growth and strengthen community among Haiti's poorest communities. This means ensuring access to medical care, housing, education, jobs and job training - basic services that should be every human being's basic right.   Basic services that in the wake of Hurricane Matthew matter now more than ever before.

I know there is no shortage of ways to spend the money you all work so hard for, and I am likely not the first, nor will be the last, to ask you to reach into your pocketbooks this holiday season, but I'm hoping you might find it in your heart to help me reach my fundraising goal of $5,000.  

This mountain is not one I can summit alone. So I am calling on you; my community, my people; my tribe, to help me help those that need it most.
