A quick THANK YOU again for …
A quick THANK YOU again for your donations over the past 2 years which now amount to $7,100 to the American Lung Association!!! I'm blown away! Over $7,000 has been donated in memory of my father!

This week marked 2 years... I am sure he would be very proud that so many family and friends were kind enough to support this cause.

Wishing you all the happiest and healthiest of Holiday Seasons...and all the best life has to offer in 2016!

We all have so much to be thankful for!

Sincerely,

Thanks again to all who have already jumped in. If you haven't yet please consider. I hate asking but it's what makes this thing special...the opp to give back in my Dad's memory. It would make him smile :)

We are currently sitting at 32% of our goal. Minimum donation just $10 on the site. Again many thanks to all of you for your support of me and my son, and for those who knew him, the love for my dad and family.

Sincere thanks to all...Talk to you soon!

Family and Friends, UPDATE: …
Family and Friends,
UPDATE:
The "Dad's Fresh Air Fund" site is live!!! Again thanks so much for your tremendous support...financially and otherwise...of the fund last year as together we raised $4,731 in support of American Lung. I understand that this year is different... It's almost 18 months since my Dad passed away - but the cause remains true so please consider supporting my son and I as we run to support American Lung in my Dad's?Dan's grandfather's memory. I know you give a lot of thought to where you put your tax deductible contributions... Thank you for considering a small donation to this very special and worthy cause. It means so very much to me!!

With much gratitude...

Hello family and friends! Y…
Hello family and friends!

You were all so generous in support of my Spartan race last year that together we raised $4,731.00;...100% of which was donated in my Dad's memory to the American Lung Association!!! You helped turn a simple fun athletic challenge into an incredible fundraiser for which I am so very grateful.

I am letting you know that the race is back on in just over 3 weeks...June 6th...

This year I am excited to be racing with my son Dan who many of you know had a serious health scare over the summer, but thankfully doing very well and has gotten into tremendous shape. We will race in support of my "Dad's Fresh Air Fund" and ask that you please consider supporting this year.

Again...all proceeds from the fund will again go to the American Lung Association in my Dad's name. A new site is just about ready. I will send a note and link over the weekend.

Thank you very much in advance!

Friends and Family... Back f…
Friends and Family...
Back from my first Spartan and happy to say it won't be my last. This run has been such an amazing experience thanks to ALL of you!
Almost 5 miles of running and climbing what seemed like mostly uphill; 15 obstacles including a 25 foot rope climb; dragging rocks and throwing spears; a team of 6 called Blood, Sweat and Beers; 66 donations and a total of $4,161 (so far) raised for the American Lung Association in my father's name. Absolutely Incredible.

I feel so blessed and humbled, not to mention absolutely adrenalized right now... Thank you so much for your love, support and friendship. Time for family, a couple beers and a few stories. I will continue to run in my dad's name and will keep you posted (no additional donations necessary :)...just your positive energy and well wishes.

Again, thanks to all. I will post again...and share pics, maybe even on this site.

Enjoy your Sunday evenings...

Love to all,
Pat

Good evening and hope everyo…
Good evening and hope everyone on this chain is having an epic weekend!!

I am absolutely AMPED for tomorrow's race. The feeling is a little like Christmas eve when I was a kid. Been training for the last couple months which has been good but my fuel is the outpouring of LOVE and SUPPORT I have received from each of you!!

I am absolutely thrilled and completely humbled by the generosity for which you have all shown me in my Dad's memory. For those of you who knew him it is certainly a tribute to his kindness and spirit. For those of you who did not, I am honored that you would choose to support me in my Dad's name.

You should know that as of this writing we are at 104% of my re-reforecasted goal of $3,872. I had no idea what to expect so I chose $1,936 - my Dad's birth year. Once we eclipsed the number quickly took it up 50%. Finally the original goal was doubled, unique in that my Dad was a twin and my Uncle Frank is still alive and well (and such a tremendous reminder to me of my Dad)!!

We hit the $4,000 mark this evening...currently sitting at $4,011 and I have a feeling that we aren't finished yet!! Thank you ALL once again for your incredible generosity and support...for your love and friendship. It means the world to me and will remain TOP of mind tomorrow as I run...for Dad.

I will check in again some time after the race!

Chris & Scott!! Thanks so …
Chris & Scott!! Thanks so much for your incredibly generous gift! So cool of you to do that for me!! I had the sense I wasn't alone with this idea of making something bigger out of me running a silly race (silly but pretty sick!!)

I decided to run this race for personal reasons but realized I could make it something bigger than me. My dad was such a generous, considerate man who never lost sight of what was most important. Thanks to family and friends like you, I will be able to give back in his name with almost $4,000 going to the American Lung Association.

I am extremely fortunate to be surrounded by such good people. I will be thinking about what we've accomplished while I run tomorrow.

Love you guys! Thanks again!
