I am running the Famous Leadville 100 in August in an effort to raise money for K2 Adventure Foundations Limb Loss and Limb Indifference program.
It took me years before I could ask for help. And once I did, my life changed. People wanted to help me? It was crazy. I thought I’d feel weaker if I asked for help, how could a man ask another man to tie his shoes for him? But when I finally did, what happened next was crazy. I felt stronger after. I felt strength in my vulnerability.
Now here I am asking you for your help. I’m trying to raise money for something that means a lot to me. Something much bigger than me.
All money raised goes to K2 Adventures Limb Loss Limb Difference program, a charity that helps people with disabilities get back into life. The money raised goes not just to “buy someone a new leg” who is in need...but also give them a life changing, confidence boosting, and a full of love experience, that in essence allows their new leg, to become part of them. I know the power of this...because it’s what helped me...”get back on my feet.”
CBS just ran the following special on the event and my goals.
