A MESSAGE FROM Turn Fifty, Hike Fifty, and Give Back
Greetings! Thank you for visiting this page. I have some news to share:
In late August, I will be doing something big to commemorate my recent 50th birthday. A face lift? Nope. A spirit lift? Most certainly!
Specifically, I will be joining forty other adventurous souls and the Project Athena Foundation (PAF) team on a 2-day, nearly 50-mile trek through the Grand Canyon in support of female survivors who have suffered a medical setback.
That's right - we are going to walk from the South to the North Rim. And back again. It's a sizable challenge - both physically and mentally - but nothing compared to what the Project Athena grant recipients have endured.
Every dollar raised by a PAF adventure participant (aka God/ Goddess) goes directly to helping an Athena survivor achieve her own adventurous dream as part of her recovery process. PAF provides travel expenses, coaching, equipment, and most importantly, the encouragement and inspiration needed to help these strong, amazing women make the life-affirming transition from Survivor to Athlete.
I'm sincerely grateful for your support in this endeavor - whether as a training partner, cheerleader, or donor. If your company has a matching program, please reference Deb Bonzell R2R2R16 in the notes and your contribution will be applied to my total. Feel free to forward this link to others who might be interested in either donating or participating in another PAF event.
Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause, and for your encouragement as I chase my own dream for 2016: Turn Fifty, Hike Fifty, and Give Back!
