Be a Force of Nature for the Sierra Club

Many of you may know that I love to run and I run for many reasons. It's been some time since I've entered a race though. So, naturally, why not go big? As big as... Zion National Park!

On February 23, 2019, I will be running in the Zion Centennial Half Marathon with Team Sierra. This is a big race for me. It's the first one since my knee injury during the 2014 Baltimore Marathon and it's two days after my 28th birthday.

It's a big race for Zion, too. In 2019, we will be celebrating 100 years since we recognized the park as a resource that we should care for and keep around. By running with Team Sierra, and raising money on behalf of the Sierra Club, we're helping to keep the park around for, hopefully, another 100 years.

My goal is to raise $500 by Thanksgiving and $1000 by race week.

I dare say we've all had that breath-taking, life-defining moment in the outdoors. I've been fortunate to experience it in my backyard growing up, in the waters of Lake Champlain in Vermont, among the wildlife in Africa, and I imagine I'll have it mid-race, gawking at Zion. I want to be sure the next generation has that moment, too.

Please help me cross the finish line by making a donation today. Your gift will keep the outdoors wild and our planet safe for generations to come.

And, don't be shy - share why nature matters to you or words of encouragement (I need those)! I promise I'll surprise you with an awesome shoutout from the Park.

Thank you, in advance, for your support.

All the best,

PS. Your donation really, truly is going towards a great cause. Sierra Club has a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and an A rating from Charity Watch. In other words, they put your money where they say they will.
