That's right! I'm 50 this year and running 50 miles for every year I've lived on this beautiful planet! Rock The Ridge is a 50 mile fundraising run through the beautiful Mohonk Mountain Perserve. The Shawangunk Mountains provide over 100 miles of hiking and biking trails, 1,000 rock climbing routes, X-county sking, horseback riding, swimming, educational programs, and camps for our students. Mohonk Preserve reminds us to put down our devices, video games, phones, and get outdoors! I've loved the outdoors since the day I was born. Living in the Hudson Valley and raising my children here is a blessing! My goal is to help preserve this National Treasure. Would you be so kind to make a donation to my campaign and help protect our environment for years to come?
On a personal note, I am dedicating my 50 mile running experience to three amazing people who have touched my life, inspired me to stay healthy, breathe in this glorious fresh mountain air, be true to myself, my family, my friends and to NEVER GIVE UP!
Bob Cook, Jr. who lost his life way too early this year. A man who loved the outdoors, a beloved husband, father, friend, and former principal of Rondout H.S. where he made a difference in the lives of so many students. I will run these miles for you.
Keely Dekoskie, my fearless friend who has been fighting cancer for more years than she should have to, but continues to hike, ski, and live her life on her terms with grace, determination, heart and soul. I will run these miles for you.
Laurie Pisack, my childhood friend whom I love and support and will run many miles for her, thinking of her determination to overcome a hardship no one person should have to face.
Thank you all for your support as I embark on this challenge for myself, my friends and the environment we all seek to preserve.
