EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
Dear Friends and Family,
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 nature preserve in the Hudson Valley of New York.
Not only will I be training like crazy for the challenge, I’m going to leverage all the hard work to raise money for the Preserve’s Environmental Education Program. With the pressure kid’s face from overuse of technology and increasingly sedentary lifestyle, life for kids can be difficult. And for disadvantaged kids, they don’t have the luxury to just go outside and experience nature.
Mohonk Preserve is piloting new, innovative programs to help address these issues and get kids outdoors. I’m reaching out to everyone I know to help raise $500 for this cause. Any amount you can give will help and would be greatly appreciated!

To checkout my fundraiser and click the big red donate button. Please give what you can. It’s very quick and easy to make the donation.
Here are a few quick facts about this cause. Mohonk Preserve is:
One of the most beautiful places in New York, protecting more than 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains;
A place where more than 100,000 kids have experienced award-winning environmental education programs;
Piloting a new outdoor education program for at-risk, inner-city youth in Newburgh, NY;
Allowing people with disabilities to experience the outdoors through its NatureAccess program: and nationally accredited land trust.
Thanks so much for your support! - see you on the trails
