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!!!!”

Sponsor #2 – OmniSource!

It is awesome how things work. Good things tend to come in bunches! Within a day or so of getting a commitment from Sue and Coldwell Banker, I received one from OmniSource and Mike Franio, who are again, another multi-year supporter of our team. OmniSource has now supported us for 4 years now and aContinue reading “Sponsor #2 – OmniSource!”

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!!!”

Keeping Fort Wayne Warm

  Just had to share this great video that NeighborLink Fort Wayne produced.  It really shows what they’re about and where the money we raised in 2019 went.  It was great to see that our funds were both heartwarming and home-warming! We’ve begun our campaign for them already.  If you’d like to contribute, please visitContinue reading “Keeping Fort Wayne Warm”

Meet Your 2020 Runners Doing Good!

The last 5 years have been a true blessing.  From barely dreaming about raising $1,000 to looking at hitting $25,000 within the next $500 raised, it’s been crazy to think about and at the core of all of this has been the people. We’ve just had a great group of people.  Many I’ve met forContinue reading “Meet Your 2020 Runners Doing Good!”

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!”

Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne

While we work to formally organize the team as a non-profit entity, it would be easy to say that we should take ’20 off, at least until everything is set because it’d be easier, but when you’ve built a reputation based on running 200 mile relay races, stepping away from a challenge isn’t an option.Continue reading “Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne”

A Year of Thanks

“The New Year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.”  — Melody Beattie As the final hours of 2019 wind down, it is fitting to reflect on it.  Not everything was or is ever perfect but there’s always something for which thanks is warranted.  Here’s a quick list ofContinue reading “A Year of Thanks”

2020’s Vision, Part II

As highlighted in Part I one of the goals was to have a race calendar so that 2020’s effort isn’t confined to 1 major event and anything else in the area is training for it.  In our effort to better connect with the Fort Wayne area running community, we’re committed to making our miles countContinue reading “2020’s Vision, Part II”
