My name is Rob Lyons. If any of you have heard of a poem called "The Dash", you'll understand what motivates be to be so passionate about helping young people and making a difference in this world. There are so many kids that could be destined for great things, so many that have that potential buried inside, if only someone would help shine a light into the darkness many of them making poor choices and headed down a wrong path. THAT, my friends, is my mission...THAT is my dash. I am driven to put positive people and opportunities into kid's lives. I am driven to inspire greatness.
On August 12, Team Bolder Options will paticipate in the RAGNAR Relay Great River. A 200 mile, overnight relay race. We are raising awareness and "fundRACING" for the kids in our program. Bolder Options is a youth mentoring organization that provides young people at risk of going down the wrong path with the opportunities, guidance and support to help them make the right turn. They incorporate a health & wellness based programming using things like running, biking, sports, and physical activity, to teach kids how to set goals that will improve their bodies and minds leading to better decision making and opening up a world of opportunities to learn, explore and discover.
I'm steppin' up to not only make a difference...but BE the difference. The RAGNAR spirit is one that dares you to be BOLD, to step out of your comfort zone and discover that you CAN achieve if you just believe. Help me knock this goal out of the park. Be BOLD. Be an inspiration! Thank you
