EVENT: 2017 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
Having ran 2 marathons and countless other races I have decided to step it up a notch this year. I just signed up for Rock The Ridge, a 50 mile endurance challenge and environmental fundraiser set in the natural beauty of the Mohonk Preserve, a nonprofit preserve just 90 minutes north of New York City in the Hudson Valley. I will be running/hiking a 50 miler, 24 hour endurance challenge on May 6 , 2017.I have made my commitment and have been training since January. With the support of friends, family and mostly my wife this difficult challenge will be accessible.
Not only will I be training like crazy for the challenge, I am going to leverage all that hard work to raise money to support Mohonk Preserve’s mission and to preserve over 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains region. The nature conservancy has named the Shawangunk’s “one of the earth’s last great places “. I am reaching out to my friends and family to support this amazing organization and help me raise $5,000 to support their mission , to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for , enjoy, and explore their natural world.
