First off…thanks for stopping by! This should only take 5 minutes of your time, but will definitely make a HUGE difference in the life of a child that desperately needs our help.

As I'm sure you know, training for a marathon gives you PLENTY of time to think, especially on those long, early morning runs. Through all those countless hours of soul-searching and introspection, Natalie and I have come to realize one thing: We’re long overdue to start giving back. This beautiful world has selflessly gifted us so many extraordinary experiences and so many wonderful encounters with amazing people it would be a shame not to reciprocate.

As any of you that travel knows all too well, some of the most memorable experiences we have while on the road are not the top tourist sites or the “must-sees”, but rather the gracious people we meet along the way. And that’s especially true of children, who no matter the odds against them or the environment they live in, always seem to have a smile upon their face.

On November 23rd Natalie and I will be running in the 2014 Kobe Marathon. We’ve developed such a love for running leading up to this event that we’d like to do everything we can to ensure children the world over have a chance to feel the same way. That is why we're kindly asking for your donation to help support what we believe is a worthy cause.

100% of your funds will go to A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO), a charity that provides comprehensive support and rehabilitative care to children in developing countries who have lost their limbs in traumatic accidents or suffer from congenital limb disabilities.

You can support our run with 5K ($5), 10K ($10), 20K ($20), or even the full 42K ($42) distance.....every little bit helps, and we will match dollar-for-dollar each donation we receive for our marathon efforts between now and November 23rd.

ALTSO’s mission is to help transform the lives of such children by offering them the physical capabilities needed to access the opportunities and self-esteem earned through education, work and mobility. Since 2003, ALTSO has transformed the lives of over 12,000 children by providing them with life-changing orthopedic care, such as prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices, mobility aids, corrective surgery and rehabilitation. Please visit http://www.altso.org/home/ for additional info on this wonderful organization.

We hope you share our enthusiasm for this noble cause, and truly appreciate your support!

See you at the finish line!!!

Ryan & Natalie
