Thanks for visiting my crowdrise page and I hope that you will support my fundraiser for La Casa Norte this year. A little bit about me....
For those of you who know me, you know that I served on active duty in the Marine Corps for a long time and I continue to serve in the reserves. For many years I have been involved in several veteran related organizations as a volunteer and leader. As I look back on my life I think it is safe say that I am a "service-oriented" person. I naturally gravitate to opportunities where I can have a positive impact on others through volunteerism, mentoring or leading. There is something about serving my fellow human beings and helping others that gives me a sense of purpose.
I like to run long distance. I like the challenge of it. I like when I can barely walk after pushing back the urge to quit for several hours on my last long run. The endorphins get flowing and it feels powerful to have the mental strength and endurance to run farther than you could just a few days ago. I have run a few marathons before, but I have never run to raise money for a charity before. I had thought about it, but I guess I was never moved enough to take action. I recently became involved in this wonderful organization called La Casa Norte. I know the team well, I believe in their leadership and they are making a measurable difference in the fight to eliminate homelessness. Running to raise money for LCN became a no-brainer decision for me.
Please join me in supporting La Casa Norte.
I will try to keep you up to date on my training and progress by posting here.
