Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!

Uncle Sam’s right……WE WANT YOU! Since 2015, we’ve hitched our wagon to large scale, long distance relay races as a way to say, “Support us because we’re doing something epic” but with the state of affairs in the world this year, we’re not going to be able to participate in Ragnar Trail Michigan, which wasContinue reading “Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!”

The Numbers Are In!!!

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re doing well. After Monday’s disappointing news regarding Ragnar Trail Michigan being postponed and our differing to 2021, I wanted to share with you some good news.

Ragnar Trail Michigan Officially Postponed

It’s with a good bit of disappointment that we officially announce that Ragnar Trail Michigan has officially been postponed. Even more of a bummer is that the dates that it’s now scheduled is one that most of the team can not attend or in light of our current status, willing to give up: Labor DayContinue reading “Ragnar Trail Michigan Officially Postponed”

One Week To Go!!!!

It has been a CRAZY month to say the least but we are 1 week away from finishing our kick-off Matching opportunity. Things have slowed down a good bit as people are trying to find their footing with the Coronavirus but there’s something I can’t stress enough, non-profits aren’t taking time off right now. NeighborLinkContinue reading “One Week To Go!!!!”

Our 1st Sponsor Has Pledged!!!

I’m truly proud to announce that Coldwell Banker Roth Wehrly Graber – Sue Teasdale is our first sponsor of 2020’s campaign to benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne.  I have had the fortune of knowing Sue now for more than 10 years as she helped Jenn and I find our first home and she has stayed inContinue reading “Our 1st Sponsor Has Pledged!!!”

This Is What It Is About!

  When we first made the decision to partner with NeighborLink Fort Wayne , it wasn’t an easy decision.  We’d been running to benefit a local children’s charity for 3 years, having run 4 long distance relay races to benefit them and had raised approximately $17,000 for them. We started slowly but every year builtContinue reading “This Is What It Is About!”

On Daring Greatly

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly … who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly” – Teddy Roosevelt I went through a leadership training course this past year and the aboveContinue reading “On Daring Greatly”

Inspiration for Change, Part III

A year ago at this time, I was really unsure of what the next step for Runnin’ Not Walken would end up being.  I had made the devastating decision to walk away from Kate’s Kart, the board there, and all that the team and I had built that had revolved around them.  I felt thenContinue reading “Inspiration for Change, Part III”

Runnin’ Not Walken Update

Happy Tuesday!  I just wanted to update you quickly on how the fundraiser to benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne is going.  I’ll keep this brief but I realized that the last update I sent out was about how I felt that May was set-up to be a big fundraising month for us. So the fundraising challengeContinue reading “Runnin’ Not Walken Update”

Why Ragnar?

Why do we run Ragnar Relays to benefit charity?  The answer is because you can’t do epic alone.  It wasn’t always that way though.  In the very beginning, the hope was to prove we could physically pull it off. To the uninitiated, a Ragnar Relay is a 12 person, approximately 200-ish mile relay style race. Continue reading “Why Ragnar?”
