THE STORY:

Those who know me have probably heard the expression "No Pain, No Gain" on more than a few occasions (along with other personal favorites like "You Can't Handle The Truth," "Your Ego's Writing Checks Your Body Can't Cash," and "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death").  So why is this important to share?  Because I've made the decision to subject my body to what will likely be some serious pain in order to do some good for the resilient people of a small, impoverished country on the other side of the planet - Cambodia.

This Sunday, October 27th, in Washington, D.C., I will lace up my running shoes and attempt to complete the Marine Corps Marathon in less than 4 hours.  It's one of those first-time "bucket list" items, but with more than 500 training miles logged since mid-June, I'm looking forward to the challenge.

I'm running the race to raise funds to support the amazing and inherently dangerous work of The HALO Trust, the world's oldest, largest and most successful humanitarian landmine clearance organization.  Remember Princess Diana?  She was a passionate HALO supporter and its most visible ambassador until her untimely death back in 1997.  HALO recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and has a significant presence in Cambodia, where my daughter has spent the past 16 months (of a 27-month commitment) serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer.

Where HALO has cleared minefields and battlefields, farmers are now planting their crops, homes and roads are being rebuilt, and children walk to school, secure in the knowledge that their next step will be a safe one.  To learn more about HALO, visit the website at www.halotrust.org.

I hope you will consider supporting my upcoming marathon fundraising effort with a tax-deductible, online donation to The HALO Trust.  Any amount, large or small, will help promote awareness of mineclearance and go far toward improving the lives of innocent people who have endured unspeakable atrocities and continue to deal with the concealed remnants of genocide and war.

Thank you for your thoughtful generosity.
