Stuff About Me:

For me, long-distance running is a pleasure and sometimes a pain, but it always brings me a great deal of serenity.  What brings even greater satisfaction is that I can actually help other people live well by running.  Can you help me help others served by Opportunity Enterprises?  It is a fine group of people with a great mission and I hope you will support them with your generous donation!  Here is the OE mission:

Opportunity Enterprises, Inc. is a non-profit organization in Northwest Indiana whose mission is to create sustainable life choices and opportunities for individuals with unique challenges and abilities. Opportunity Enterprises provides early intervention, transition, residential, occupational, and educational support services to more than 1,000 children and adults with developmental, emotional, and/or physical disabilities in Northwest Indiana. In the past thirteen years over 3,600 runners have raised over 1.7 million dollars for Opportunity Enterprises. This year funds raised by the OE Marathon Team will support growth and development at OE Lakeside and the programs that are, or soon will be, housed there.
