I just wanted to crawl out of my cave of inactivity to let everyone know not only am I NOT DEAD ('cause my forum and review activity went WAY down) but that I've undertaken the HUGE task of fundraising $1k as well as training for a 9k run to benefit veterans with PTSD and TBI.
That's right folks, I'll be participating in this years Run to Home Base 9k in conjunction with the Red Sox Foundation and Mass General Hospital.
Not only is it a dream come true for a Masshole such as myself to be able to run across home plate at historic Fenway park, but I get to do it for one of the most noble causes, raising money to help veterans who have suffered the most insidious injury a war can cause, they ones you can't see.
The full post is up on the Eden Gives Back Blog
I'll be updating on the forum from time to time with my progress both running and fundraising as it gets closer to the May 12th deadline. After the Race on May 22nd I'll update you all with my time and pics from the event!
You can help with the fundraising by donating your points or gift cards as well. Eden has generously agreed to value your points in full, so if you have 2000 points, you’d be able to trade them in for a $20 donation. E-mail Gary@edenfantasys.com to donate your points. Purchasing a gift card will also donate the full value, so if you buy a $20.00 gift card, when the physical card arrives you can send the numbers to email@example.com and he’ll make sure the full amount of the card purchased is donated.
You can also check my fundraising progress or donate directly to me by clicking here, and while you're there, you can click around to learn more about the Home Base Organization.
Remember that the deadline for donations is May 12th, so get yours in before then!
Thank you all in advance for your help and support! You really are a great group of people
