Roger Wooster's Fundraiser:

Roger's Trifecta for Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung

THE STORY:

As some of you know, I grew up two houses away from Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung in Towanda PA. We had large back yards and woods in the neighborhood. Dawn was part of a pack of us who always played, tag, war, football, kickball, and just about any sport or game you can think of. By many accounts, Dawn was the best athlete. I know that I couldn't keep up with her.

Dawn was the heroic principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School who tragically lost her life in that inexplicable event.

A little over two years ago, I took to obstacle racing and have found the Spartan Race series to be among the most challenging and fulfilling. Spartan has an earned designation called The Trifecta Tribe. To achieve this, one must complete a Spartan Sprint (4 miles), Super (8 miles +/-) and The Beast (12 +/- miles) in a calendar year. I'm certainly not a trophy winner, but I get great satisfaction from these. We run, climb, crawl, throw, lift, get muddy, slide and test ourselves to the limits. Many of the things done in these races are similar to what Dawn and our group of friends did as youngsters.

I have decided to complete The Trifecta in Dawn's honor. I have completed the Sprint segment and will take to the Super in New Jersey and The Beast in Killington both in September.

The Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung Memorial Fund has been created to benefit students from her hometown high school who are planning to pursue a career in education (Dawn's professional mission). This fund is administrated by The Connecticut Community Foundation.

I am humbly asking your donations as I pursue this goal.

Sincerely

Roger W. Wooster
