EVENT: Team Running Strong 2016 MCM
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
As many of you know, my family's Native roots are very important to me, and my pops made sure growing up tat I knew where our family had come from and what they had endured. He also made sure I knew how lucky I was compared to so many fellow Natives to have the education and familial stability he and my mama provided. Long before I was born my grandpa left our Reservation in Tahlequah, OK in search of opportunities, and while I did not grow up there, I want to give back to the families and children making their way against the odds on Reservations around the country.
I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct. 22nd to raise money for Running Strong for American Indian Youth. I could not be more excited about a charity than I am about Running Strong. I've done a lot of fundraising and fund-racing over the years but this is as dear to my heart and as worthy a cause as it gets. I hope you'll support my efforts - I promise to work hard and donate my own time, energy, and money to make this a success!
