Here’s a quirky fundrais­ing idea for Team World Vision. It’s sim­ple: Kids need fresh water to live and I need new music for train­ing. For every $25 you donate, you can select a song for my playlist. I always lis­ten to music when I’m train­ing and hear­ing your songs is a way of tak­ing a cheer­ing sec­tion with me. Just type the song title in your mes­sage and I’ll take care of the rest. (I’ve heard that I’m ask­ing for trou­ble on this! Bring it on!) Enjoy the video.

Want to make a dif­fer­ence in the world?  I have pledged to run the Chica­go Marathon on Octo­ber 8th in order to raise mon­ey for fresh drink­ing water for chil­dren in Africa.  It is hard to fath­om the mag­ni­tude of the prob­lems that these peo­ple face each and every day.  $50 will pro­vide enough water for a life­time for one person.

Even though this is a seri­ous prob­lem, I would­n’t be me if I was­n’t hav­ing a lit­tle fun along the way.  Dur­ing marathon train­ing, I will be lis­ten­ing to over 90 hours of music while run­ning and it is impos­si­ble to train for some­thing as daunt­ing as a marathon with­out sup­port along the way.  Dur­ing those long miles, lis­ten­ing to music is a great way to be remind­ed of the peo­ple that are cheer­ing me on while I train.  For this rea­son, I will add a song to my train­ing playlist for every $25 donat­ed to Team World Vision.  It’s sim­ple, the link below will give you more infor­ma­tion on how World Vision is uti­liz­ing its resources and what their is all about.  When you donate, add your song request in the memo and I’ll take care of the rest.  Run­ning 20 train­ing miles on a hot Sum­mer day is nev­er easy, but it’s eas­i­er know­ing that friends are along for the run!  Thank you for sup­port­ing my efforts, but more impor­tant­ly, thank you for bring­ing life to so many that need help.
