Hi there! My name is Katelyn Dick, and I'm an undergraduate student of fine art specializing in sculpture and painting at Minnesota State University, Mankato. In addition to being an artist i'm also a martial artist in Tae Kwon Do, an enjoyer of comic books, a sister, a daughter, and friend.
Some of the coolest people I've met happen to be kids a lot younger than me. Like my buddy Leo! Leo is 9 years old, and loves things like playing Minecraft and spending time with his pet cockatiel, Valentine. He's a super bright kid, and he's really fortunate to have a loving family, a roof over his head, and meals to eat every day.
Unfortunately, not every child has guaranteed access to food each day like my friend Leo does. For some kids, the only meal they can count on is a free or discounted lunch from their school. When you're hungry, it's difficult to focus on doing well in school, and many young students are not able to reach their full potential because they're wondering when they'll have their next meal instead of engaging in the classroom.
Making sure kids get access to healthy meals so that they can do their best in school and throughout their lives is what prompted me to team up with Team Feed The Children for the 2016 Tough Mudder Twin Cities!, Feed The Children is a wonderful organization that seeks to end childhood hunger throughout the United States and around the world. In addition they help young students and their families get the supplies they need so that they can be prepared to learn!
For me to be on the team, Feed The Children as asked me to raise $1,000 to help them continue doing the wonderful work that they do. I'm setting a personal goal of $2,000! Please support me as I train for this year's Twin Cities Tough Mudder: Every dollar donated motivates me further to pound the pavement, hit the gym, and become strong and enduring enough to survive my very first Tough Mudder!
If just 100 people donate $20 each, we can reach this goal! Join me in donating to Feed The Children today!
