Robert was full of life and full of love. We miss him dearly and adjusting to life without him has been a challenge. Spending time with family and friends, and sharing memories has been most comforting for us. Some of those memories have been shared on the track on Saturday mornings in what we have affectionately dubbed our "Team Rob" get togethers. In honor of what would have been his 39th birthday, my family and I want to invite all of those who loved Robert to join us in honoring his memory with a fundraising walk/jog/run (and for those big spenders we'll let you race Brian :). We have chosen two charities, the Partnership at Drugfree.org and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. About the former...90% of addicts get started in their teenage years, Partnership at Drugree.org translates the science of teen drug use and addiction for families. At drugfree.org, you can find a wealth of information, tools and opportunities to help prevent and get help for drug and alcohol abuse by teens and young adults. The second charity, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation, is to honor Robert's passion for nutrition and exercise and his dream of becoming a registered dietician in an urban environment to increase access to nutrition education throughout the community in order to improve overall health.
Come share memories and laughs in a way Rob would love, in an activity Rob enjoyed :)
