BENEFITING: ANGELS OF AMERICAS FALLEN
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2017
So what's my story? If you know anything about me, you know that Chick-fil-A has played a huge part in my life. My brother worked there. I worked there. My wife worked there. I still volunteer during the summer as a ride leader in the fitness cycling club. And every year that there's been a Skate-a-thon, I'm there!
So to take part for a 7th straight year, I never gave it a second thought! I love Chick-fil-A, and I love helping with this fundraiser! Help me out this year and you won't regret it. (there's a NEW prize for you this year, maybe more!) This is an activity that I look forward to helping with every year and I seem to be blessed far beyond what I try to do myself. Hearing the stories that come out of this event are something everyone should experience.
To set a personal goal is just a number. The real goal is to raise as much as we can for this amazing group - hearing stories first-hand make the whole event (even in the middle of the freezing cold!) worth it! I'll set the bar at $1,000, but I hope to see it take off higher this year! I'll match the first $200 that gets donated to help cover the gap!
The charity again this year is Angels of America's Fallen, providing healthy activities for children of our fallen so they can pursue a passion of their choice with a coach or instructor who can mentor them. When AOAFallen provides the activities to the children, they commit to sticking with them from the time they sign up all the way until they are 18 years old. Because the children's parent volunteered to serve, and gave all while doing so, they deserve support throughout the entire time they are growing up without them. You can have a very positive impact on the life of a child whose sacrifice without their parent is ongoing.
Children of our fallen military and first responders have to grow up without their biggest mentor during their crucial developmental years. Funds raised from the Chick-fil-A First 100 Skate-A-Thon will help provide them healthy activities and mentoring as they grow into adults.
As an added bonus, I've done a little work on the side just to say 'thank you' to you, the cheerful donator - for every $20 donated I'll send you a one-of-a-kind bicycle chain keychain or ornament made by yours truly! I also have a new one this year - a fidget! Each order will get 2 of these if you aren't in the mood for a keychain/ornament! I use mine during Broncos games. Already got a keychain or ornament from last year? Well just let me know if there's another way I can thank you. Chick-fil-A coupons? Naming rights to my first-born? Free Rubik's Cube lessons? Anything!
Once donated, just let me know which one/s you'd like, private message me your address, and it'll be on the way :) Don't see the color you want? Just ask! I'll get it. Thinking of a different shape? I'll see what I can do! Just my way of saying thank you for helping support this great mission.
