In 2014 I had the privilege to hear Robyn Benincasa speak about her journeys and her non profit organization, Project Athena. I walked away that day knowing I had to somehow get involved. I made the decision to hike the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim for the Epic Journey of a Lifetime in 2015. The trip was truly amazing and has motivated me to stay involved with Project Athena. This foundation helps women that have experienced a medical or traumatic setback accomplish athletic and adventurous goals. From completing their first 5K to climbing Kilimanjaro, your donation helps inspirational survivors get one step closer to achieving their dreams.
In 2016 , I joined Project Athena to complete the first ever 24-hour Adventure Race through Santa Barbara in support of female survivors who have suffered a medical setback. This was an incredible experience and for all of us that were there, an incredible sense of accomplishment.
And now, year 3 and I will be with this amazing group once again, this time in the Florida Keys where we will bike and kayak and inspire each other to achieve what many only dream about.
Every dollar donated goes directly toward helping these survivors achieve their adventurous dreams. I hope to inspire woman that have had a major set back knowing that through this journey I will be the one that is the most inspired by their courage and ability to conquer fears that we all feel and experience in our lives each and every day. Thank you so much for taking the time to donate to this cause on my behalf!
