Today I'm emailing for your support so I thank you up front for reading on...
For the 30 plus years that I have been an endurance athlete, I have always had a desire to share what I was learning with others. I also wanted to do some kind of fund raising with each event or race to ensure others in need would benefit from my own personal pursuit of better health and fitness. My desire to share what I was learning with others is why I became a coach. In my quest to give back and help others in need, specifically children, I created a donor advised fund called the "Pursuit Fitness Childrens Fund," which resides within the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut. This year I wanted to take my involvement with AngelRide (angelride.org) as a coach, to a new higher level by participating as a rider. This Memorial Day weekend, I will be participating in AngelRide, to continue on my path of helping children in need.
100% of rider fundraising supports The Hole In The Wall Gang's Hospital Outreach Program: bringing the hopeful, playful spirit of The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp to children and families in the hospital setting. "HOPS" as they're referred to, are critically important to the mission of this amazing camp. These hospital visits to those children who have had the opportunity to attend camp allows the camp's influence and compassion to be extended beyond the grounds of the camp, and includes hospitals all over New England. Tens of thousands of visits were made in 2013 and even more are planned in 2014. Every $50 raised pays for one visit! Imagine the impact of every single dollar raised in providing those children, and their families with ongoing love, support and help when it is needed the most. Every dollar does count. Please help me help others by supporting me for AngelRide.
