BENEFITING: John Volken Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2016
Three years ago I was pushing 190lbs, nearing the 4 decade mark. Further, I was on medication for gout, was on surgery #2 for my knee, and lets just say some aspects of my life were not heading in the right direction. And then a good friend introduced me to running. I cannot say life has been perfect, but each day I am feeling much better, have a more positive outlook, and no longer plauged by joint issues.
This spring I was approached by Team Volken, and heard the story of what they do from one of their graduates. The issues I faced seem so trivial by comparison, and I truly commend their efforts to effect change. The presentation so happend to be at one of my running club meetings and we were asked, "if running could help change a life in crisis, would you do it?" To me it was not a question, of course running can (and has) change a life , and of course I will.
Please, can you join me in supporing this cause?
