Zion Half - for a Cause!

Hello Friends!

Hope all is well!
I am writing to talk about two things - Running and Nature! Two of my most favorite things!

When I graduated college (back in 2003!!), I volunteered for the Sierra Club for about 4 months. Yes, I was one of those people encouraging people to donate to the Sierra Club by way of door to door campaigning and street events, a daunting task, but one that I believed in and still do.

Now, all these years later, I have pledged to raise funds in support of the Sierra Club by running the Zion Half Marathon in Utah this February. I am running with some of my closest friends and some of the loves of my life - Amelia Tabullo, Ryan MacDonald and Richard Lamana. We believe that having freedom to clean air, water, land is vital for all of our communities. Please consider donating to our team and making an impact on our precious Mother Earth.

The funds you donate will enable the Sierra Club to do things like:
• Provide cleaner, cheaper, energy.
• Protect our land, water, and air – from our backyards to the other side of the globe.
• Save animals being threatened with extinction.
• Make the outdoors accessible for all of us.

I know they’re going to take the funds we raised and use them to have the biggest impact on the issues we care about. In times when it feels like less and less people care about the environment, about our national forests and parks and about the future of this planet, I am proud to be doing my part to counter that and I know you feel the same way.

My goal is $1,500, please help me cross the finish line by making a donation. And when you do, let me know why you care about doing good by nature in the “Words of Encouragement” box. I would love to hear from you!


This is important to me because the Sierra Club is making our communities better – they’re protecting natural places near cities and suburbs and working hard to ensure clean air and water for all. I want to help them succeed. Please believe me when I say that every penny counts and there is no donation too small.

If you'd like to learn more about their mission, you can check out sierraclub.org, or participate in their campaigns at addup.org!

Lastly, my team will be doing all kinds of other fundraisers leading up to our race, so stay tuned for that! We have some fun ideas. :)

Thank you for always supporting my crazy ideas and wild adventures.
Let's do this together!
