I am excited to announce that I have joined Love2Reach (“L2R”) for their 2019 season. In case you don’t know L2R is a training and charity fundraising group who believes in the ability of physical exercise to change lives for the better. The mission of L2R is to create positive change in the greater Columbus, Ohio area through the power of participating in endurance events. Over the last six years the members of L2R raised over $162,000 for local charities such as the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio, Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, Canine Companions for Independence, and Children's Hunger Alliance.
This year L2R will be working with Special Olympics Ohio. Special Olympics Ohio offers 22 Olympic-style individual and team sports that provide meaningful training and competition opportunities for 23,000 persons with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
My fundraising goal is $250. I hope you will join me in making a difference as we celebrate the accomplishments of the athletes served by Special Olympics Ohio. The great thing about L2R is that 100% of what I raise goes directly to the charity*.
