With the New Year upon us, I've been giving a lot of thought to how I can make my contribution this year.

 

Since so many of my friends and family members have committed themselves to serving both Canada and the U.S. (and making me feel pretty inadequate in the process) in the armed forces and law enforcement, I felt like this would be a perfect place to start. 

 

So this year I have decided to commit myself to a number of physical challenges, which I hope will pique your interest and give you a reason to contribute to a charity that helps both military and law enforcement families – The Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation (check out the website for full details:  http://www.mc-lef.org/).  A colleague of mine led me to this charity and I think its mission is exactly what I am looking for, To encourage the spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical development of children through education. This Foundation was formed in February of 1995 by former Marines and law enforcement personnel who strongly believe that our nation's most precious resource is its youth.”  98% of all contributions go to helping military and law enforcement families, which is also a huge plus.

 

Now, what am I going to do?  My plan is to complete four Tough Mudder races throughout the year (if you don’t know what this is, here is the website for more details:  http://toughmudder.com/).  In addition, I plan on competing in the World’s Toughest Mudder – a 24-hour race where you try to complete as many laps as possible of a Tough Mudder course (http://toughmudder.com/worlds-toughest-mudder-series-finals/).  I expect it to be a difficult year of training but I think it pales in comparison to what many of my family members have committed to every day.

 

I am asking for your help in sponsoring me towards my goal…no donation is too small and I hope that some of you can also commit to doing one or more of the races with me.  Either way, I hope you follow my progress on Facebook (yeah I know me joining Facebook may be a bigger deal than all of the physical challenges), where I will keep you posted on my workouts, races and donation progress.  Jess and I will also be profiling a different military veteran monthly, which we will post on the page. 

 

I hope you can join me on this journey….thanks for your consideration.
