Hello and thank you for visiting the World's toughest Mudder fundraiser for Ruben's Shoes!!

As some of you might already now, this year I have decided to sing up for the World's Toughest Mudder Race in Las Vegas, November 15th, 2014.

The World's Toughest Mudder is a 24hr race and I have to do as many laps as I can in 24hrs in a 5 mile (8km) obstacle course. (YES, I DO THINK I AM A LITTLE CRAZY!!!)

Aside from this race being a personal challenge, I have decided to use this race as an opportunity to raise money for this AWESOME organization called Ruben's Shoes!! During my first year at the Vancouver Giants, I had the great pleasure of meeting Kelly (founder of Ruben's Shoes) and her great crew, and I cannot say it enough about how amazed I am about what they do with so little funding.

Ruben’s Shoes is a charity named after a real boy in the Dominican Republic. Kelly became Ruben’s sponsor through World Vision when he was just three years old. After seven years of him tugging on her heartstrings in photos and letters, Kelly flew to the D.R. and finally met Ruben.

Between them, it was an instant spark full of unconditional love and total understanding that began right then. Ruben, Kelly says, changed everything!!

For her, he began a movement. Today, Ruben is now 12, and Ruben’s Shoes has gotten well over 10,000 kids into much-needed footwear.

In many countries, children are forbidden from attending school if they simply lack shoes. Ruben's Shoes believes education is the most important tool we have to lift these countries above their economic strife, and that's why its mission is to collect shoes so these kids can attend school and change the world. Ruben's Shoes also fundraisers in an effort to build needed community schools and dorms to ensure education remains a priority. The organization currently focuses its efforts on the Dominican Republic and Haiti, but will go where the help is needed in the months and years ahead.

I will have 4 months and a bit to get into the best shape of my life!!! and raise as much money as I can! Any donation is more than appreciated and I certainly hope you can help me reach my goal!

In addition, please remember that the more donations I get the harder I will train! hahaha :P

This is a great opportunity for me to help a great cause and I really wanted to thank you all for helping me make a difference!
