Hey All, So this October I am aiming to run/walk/crawl in the Detroit 1/2 marathon. The coolest thing about this marathon is that it goes to Canada. 1 mile through the tunnel from Detroit to Windsor and over the Ambassador Bridge. As a native Detroiter I am so excited to be able to head home and do something I love. BUT WAIT- Ya'll know me... I am NOT a marathon'er. I know I live in Boulder and all but... So here is where the motivation to keep going comes from, a place that is sooo me- C.A.M.P! Just wrapped up my 24th summer at Jewish summer camp and there is no better place in the world. It's a place where I can be the me I want to be the rest of the year. This year I had the privilege of working/learning at Ramah in the Rockies where I oversaw the Inclusion Program. It's a program for kids with developmental difficulties and may need some more hugs and assistants. One of the values at Ramah in the Rockies is taking care of our health. Every morning we'd meet for Shmirat Ha'guf (loosely translated as watching the body) and do a quick workout to get our day started. I am using the motivation from the camp I love and the values it imparts to help train for this 1/2 marathon. I need to be held accountable so here is where YOU come in! Help me stay motivated by making a donation. You love me, I love camp, love what I love and help me stay healthy and get to that finish line! Detroit better watch out 'cuz I'm coming with the Ramah in the Rockies spirit! Thank you -Hindy
