Family, friends and colleagues,
Welcome to my fundraising page on behalf of the Tusk Organization!
Many of you helped support my dear friend, Chelsea Wiley, and me as we completed our 2nd Half Marathon and raised over $2,500 for St Jude Children's Hospital in November, 2011. We are now taking on an even greater athletic challenge and have been selected to run the Safaricom Half Marathon(http://www.safaricom.co.ke/safaricommarathon/) in Northern Kenya alongside 16 of our Blackrock colleagues. This daunting feat (think altitude, extreme heat and wild animals) is all in an effort to raise money for the Tusk Organization (http://us.tusk.org/). This amazing organization will use all of the money raised to build new schools, promote education, and protect local wildlife.
For the past few years, several of my Blackrock colleagues have participated in this event and have raised thousands of dollars for Tusk. I have set a personal goal of raising $7000 before race day, June 30, 2012. I realize this is a lofty goal, but I am up to the challenge and hope that with the support of my wonderful friends and family, I will be able to meet this goal and help to contribute to this unbelievable organization.
I appreciate your consideration and promise to document the experience each step of the way.
Please feel free to email me with questions.
