Hello friends and family! Thanks for taking the time to check out my fundraising page for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, as I set out to conquer the Vermont 100 mile Endurance Race in July of 2020!
What is the Vermont 100 Endurance Race?
The VT100 is among the four oldest 100 mile races in the United States, and is a part of the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning. How cool is that? I will tackle this epic ultra race as part of Team Run 2 Empower, in which all funds raised go to Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports!
I want you to be part of this amazing mission and journey with me!
A question I get a lot...."is this a 100 mile relay race?", or "are you on a bike?" Nope. It's an Ultra Marathon in which each competitor is running 100 miles in a single day.
What is Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports?
There are people out there for whom just getting out to walk can be a challenge. People who need a little extra assistance to meet the challenge that brings health, fun and passion to their lives. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports provides sports and recreational programs as well as wellness and environmental retreats to people with disabilities.
They’re programs are offered to people of all ages, with a variety of disabilities. Programs include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and Nordic in the winter; and sailing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, horseback riding, and more in the warmer months.
Why Vermont Adaptive?
The mission of Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is so important to me because it helps others enjoy the same health, fun, and passions that have been such an integral part of my life.
I am honored to be part of Team Run 2 Empower for my second year in order to empower others thru my training and racing, including empowering and inspiring our donors thru my journey to the VT100!
Vin has been a competitive runner for over 25 years. Two years ago Vin had a serious back injury in which a doctor told him he’d probably never run again. 12 weeks later Vin did his first Ultra Marathon.
When Vin is not running and training for the VT100, he’s a passionate entrepreneur that helps others get results. He is the Chief Marketing Officer & Head of Digital for The Framularo Group, in which he is an expert marketing consultant. Vin is also a Coach at EPIC Hybrid Training in Fairfield County, CT. Vin has been coaching to help others achieve their goals for 18 years.
