THE STORY:

Hi!

My name is Dan Bell and I am running a marathon for charity this fall! For those of you who know me you may still be laughing at that last sentence. Being a former college lacrosse goalie and a competitive downhill skier, I've been fairly successful at avoiding having to run through out my athletic career. However, after being bet that I couldn't complete a marathon, I had no choice but to start making up for the lost miles. I have started training for the Moab Trail Marathon in Utah on November 8th, which also happens to be the Trail Running National Championship!  And because running 26.2 miles through a desert didn't seem like enough, I have decided to use this as an opportunity to simultaneously raise money for charity!

Because sports and fitness have played such an integral role in my development as a person, always bringing me immense pleasure through out my life, I have decided to try to give back to charities that provide athletic opportunities for children and practice philanthropy through sports.

Great news is:  I have been incredibly fortunate enough to partner with Positive Tracks (a program administered by the Yippee Foundation). Positive Tracks is an amazing non-profit organization that enables hands-on philanthropy through a global movement of fostering youth fitness and wellness. Positive Tracks partners with charities by plugging into their charitable athletic events and doubling youth fundraising dollars. Learn more about Positive Tracks by watching this quick vid (you won’t regret it).

Even better news is: By raising money for Positive Tracks, my dollars will be matched, and I have earmarked my funds to support three of my favorite Positive Tracks Charity Partners:

Grassroot SoccerLacrosse the Nations, and Turtle Ridge Foundation.

With this run, I will be supporting four incredible organizations, and I encourage you to learn more about each of them. My goal is to raise at least $2,620 - and yes, that's $100 per mile!

So no matter how old YOU are, every dollar you give ME will be doubled for multiple charities. Every donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE, too.

Please help me support Positive Tracks, Grassroot Soccer, Lacrosse the Nations, and the Turtle Ridge Foundation. Every donation - no matter the size - is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, and remember that EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS.

LET'S MAKE THIS MORE THAN A MARATHON!
