*Thanks to everyone that helped me reach my initial goal of $2,000. I have now updated my goal to $3,000 because why not aim high!
Hello friends and family!
I will be running the Vermont 100 for the third time this coming July (100K 2015, 100Miles 2016). While competing and completing the Vermont 100 is a goal of mine I am also hoping to fundraise over $2,000 for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. In 2016, I successfully fundraised for Vermont Adaptive and completed my first 100 mile race. I am hoping to replicate both my fundraising effort and successful run from 2016.
Some of you might consider me crazy for not only wanting to run the Vermont 100 but also wanting to run it for another time. However, I think it is crazy to pass on the opportunity to fundraise for such a great organization while also pushing my physical limits. I invite any who are willing to join me on some training runs and please consider donating what you can to help me reach my goal and help Vermont Adaptive meet their goal too!
The VT 100 is one of Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports biggest fund raisers every year. For more information about Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports read below and visit www.vermontadaptive.org.
