From the Long Family:
Next week we will be setting out on a great adventure. We will be heading on a nine-day trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania – the highest mountain in Africa at 19,341 feet. .
When amazing opportunities such as this are presented, there is an inherent period of reflection and a sense of gratitude – not only for our health, but also for the experiences over the years which bring us to this moment. We’ve been blessed with many mentors and opportunities which have enabled us to accomplish our goals.
But one experience stands out in getting us here today and that is our shared passion for the outdoors and for supporting recreational opportunities. Whether it was a local soccer program, ski team, horseback riding or little league each of us has benefitted from the opportunities afforded by organized recreational and sports activities For our children their first exposure to sports and outdoor adventure was through the Lincoln Recreation Department. Whether it was chasing after a soccer ball, ski trips to the local mountains, ropes courses at town camp or swim team; each was actively involved with our hometown’s recreation department.
The Lincoln Recreation Department has a scholarship for children who come from families without the financial resources for these programs. As a way to give back as we take this step forward, we are pledging a donation to this fund – and we are hoping you can too.
It’s a long trek (more than 60 miles), but knowing you are behind us will give us the extra motivation to get there.
If you’d like to make a donation of $19.34, ($1 for every thousand feet) you can do so by making your check out to Lincoln Recreation Scholarship fund.
We are indebted to you for your support for this climb.
Many, many thanks!
Bruce Long and Family
