Live Uncommon Revolution: First Charity Race of the Year

Coming up very soon on St. Patrick's Day is the CASI - Center for Active Seniors 5K on March 17 in Davenport, Iowa.

You can sign up for the race at their website

You can join the REVOLUTION and have the race be part of your training

More importantly you can donate to this great organization to help them out.

This is the first of seven races aligned with the Live Uncommon REVOLUTION. My goal is to help raise money that will go to charities aligned with each of the races. I would like to be able to help out CASI so if you are not participating in the race and would like to donate whatever you can to the cause and to also help me reach my goal I would think that you were super AWESOME!

If you would like to donate to  help CASI and to also help me reach my goal please go to the hyperlink above or here.

As each race draws near I will continue to highlight the charities and update my status in my fundraising. I am realizing that the fundraising is as hard as the training. Actually, getting up at 4:30 am to run 18 miles is easier than raising funds for the various charities. I am working hard on my training and my goals and would love any help you can provide to help me achieve my goal of $700.

Remember the Live Uncommon mantra: I AM

Be the REVOLUTION and help out others and also yourself.
