A Runner Looks at 40: A Look Back

So 2020 hasn’t gone like I planned. There’s been some good and a whole lot of “meh.” Looking back at a post I wrote in December, just before my birthday, I had ALL SORTS OF GOALS. With what I had hoped and planned for, it was set up to be a great year. Check outContinue reading “A Runner Looks at 40: A Look Back”

RDG’s Self Sustaining Goal

In the article from the other day, one of the team goals was to become self-sustaining. That’s not an easy thing to become when you’re a group of runners, doing this for fun, but with a purpose. We’re not a Non-Profit who can go out there, organize, and bring in donations that benefit us directly.Continue reading “RDG’s Self Sustaining Goal”

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. After our March Matching opportunity, we have officially now raised $2,932 to benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne! It’s remarkable that we hit this numberContinue reading “The Numbers Are In!!!”

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”

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!”

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!!!”

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!”
