Steve A and I volunteered with Eagle Mount out of Bozeman, Montana two winters ago. We were so inspired by the time that these people take to make a real difference in the life experience of these people that we have been searching for a way to give to them ever since. Because all of us find so much inspiration in running as well, this is a very natural pairing for us: Giving back while we do something we love.
This is all part of the bigger idea of RespireRunning. Consider this the first test run of our running company. Keep posted for future reference to that.
If you can find the courage to give- even when you feel like you can't- your life's blessings will continually be lent to others. How can you go wrong?
You are the altruism that the world needs.
