You may remember a little more then 2 years ago I hiked the Grand Canyon- it was the 'Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim' Fundraising Adventure through Project Athena Foundation. It was the hardest thing I have ever done- physically and emotionally. 2 years prior to that I went out on a limb and joined the Project Athena Foundation for their first ever 'Keys 2 Recovery' Fundraising Adventure. In 2012 I saw PAF founder Robyn Benicasa (pictured above) Speak at a conference and I was so moved by her story and what PAF was all about that I signed up for a trip of a lifetime, not having a clue what I was getting myself into and not knowing another person going. I left with a brand new circle of people who went from strangers, to friends, to family in the matter of a weekend.
2 PAF Adventures later I am gearing up for round 3! One of the Athena's from my first trip is returning back for the 5 year reunion next November to give herself a goal to reach for and I am honored to join this trip and raise money to continue to help Athena's like Alli and my good friend Kristen Lucci, recover from medical setbacks in life and return to an adventurous life!

For many years I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support I get financially from my family, friends and wonderful coworkers. Whether this be for football fees or Project Athena Foundation donations you all continue to allow me to keep living adventurously and a life full of giving back while and pushing my own personal limits. I am truly grateful for each of you and your relentless support! I appreciate you all and thanks for considering helping me reach my goal, which will help deserving survivors push their personal limits towards huge accomplishments!
