BENEFITING: JOHN WAYNE CANCER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOHN WAYNE CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT: Tough Mudder Pittsburgh 2017
Hello! My name is Julie!
I decided to challenge myself to be a better person and some how I got the crazy idea that I wanted to complete a Tough Mudder! While searching through their webpage I came across the charity page and started to scroll through the various charities. The moment that I saw the John Wayne Cancer Foundation I knew without a doubt that I was going to do this event and I knew that I wasn't just going to do it for me but I was going to do it to help others.
My family and close friends know why the John Wayne Foundation would catch my attention. My grandfather was a big part of my life and a true inspiration to me. He had 'TRUE GRIT', he was stubborn as a bull but he also had a calm, steady way about him that when he was around, you felt like you could do anything as long as he was by your side. The memory of him and how he made me feel is what's going to drive me to get through this Tough Mudder and reach my fundraising goal!
This fundraiser is not just about my grandfather. It is about every single family member, friend, coworker... It's about helping this foundation. Unfortuntely we all know too well what cancer can do. I'm hoping to make a difference. It's a small one in the grand scheme of things but I have so many people in my life that have fought the battle and won and maybe it was because of one simple act like this one that I am doing.
Please help me raise money for this great cause! I can't do this without you.
I'm excited and scared at the same time that I am actually going through with this Tough Mudder. I know that this is going to be tough but I know my team and I are going to rock!
"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway" -John Wayne
SO LETS SADDLE UP!
