We work for an amazing company, Edrington, who allows us to raise money for a charity of our choosing and they will MATCH us up to a $2500 per employee! After a recent company trip, I had the sobering realization that I raised a grand total of $0.00 last year for others and it made me feel like absolute garbage. We all have busy lives, but I should have given more. So, this year I decided to take my company up on their offer and raise as much money as possible to race in an AUGUST SPARTAN Race with a crew of about 5-10 people to raise as much money as possible to help Disabled Veterans. I have never done a Spartan Race, but if you donate, we will finish this race and its 20 obstacles over 5 miles in the summer heat. Our goal is to raise $10,000 and have my company match as much as possible, $5000 at a minimum. I know this is a lofty goal and I may only raise $100 bucks, but I feel this is important to give it a try, and then try again.
