Back in February, most of you learned of my aspirations to use the Race Across America as a platform to rid the stigma surrounding depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses in collaboration with the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation. Amazingly enough, the first words out of many of you were "I want to help. What can I do to support you?". At the time, I would mention that we were working on some awesome opportunities for just that. Today we announce the first one.
For the past 5 years, I have been following the nutrional plan of Tina Shiver at LightenUp In doing so, she has made sure I was consuming the correct foods for not only the rigors of training and racing but most importantly everyday life. There is something special about the way Tina works where she takes the "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime." approach.
On April 29th, she will be extending her teachings outside of the office and into the kitchen to help us in our mission to rid the stigma. I would like to invite all of you to join us at the beautiful home of the forever supportive Amy and Steve Williams in Maymont Park. Registration is limited to the first 20 folks who RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 804-254-1002 This is a night that is guaranteed to have be full of teachings, laughter and love. One you will not want to miss.
If you aren't able to attend, have no fear you can still help by visiting our store where there are still some of the #NothingToItButToDoIt long sleeve shirts and hats and lots of other handmade items donated by local artisans. You can also make 100% tax deductible donations to the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation on our behalf by visiting our crowdrise page.
