EVENT DATE: May 08, 2017

THE STORY:

I feel incredibly lucky to have been raised in a family that had the time and resources to take me to beautiful regional, state, and national parks growing up. Spending time in the outdoors helped me gain confidence, perspective, and inspiration for how I want to live my life. I truly believe that time spent in nature can transform lives. Big City Mountaineers is an organization I have known about for many years, but have never personally fundraised for. Big City Mountaineers transforms the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring expeditions that instill critical life skills. They partner with community-based youth organizations and caring adult volunteers who act as mentors in the field to help young people realize their potential. Their curriculum improves integrity, self- esteem, responsibility, decision-making abilities and communication skills in close to 1,000 youth annually. I am running my first ever trail race, the Ragnar Trail Tahoe, CA, where I will run 15 miles as part of a relay with my team "Case of the Runs". I am super excited and have just started training on the local trails. Accomplishing this feat will be rewarding, but the most rewarding thing of all would be to know that my time on trail was inspiring people to support Big City Mountaineers to send an under-served youth on a life-changing wilderness experience. Thank you all for your support and check this out to learn about the Race: https://www.runragnar.com/event-detail/trail/tahoe_ca and to learn more about BCM: http://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/
