PROVIDING HOMES AND HOPE TO THE WOMEN OF BURUNDI - ONE STEP AT A TIME
I am busy father of two who runs a law practice in Wenatchee, Washington while serving as an adjunt professor at both Wenatchee Valley College and Central Washington University. I am a long distance runner, active in my church, and have been told
I am a dedicated husband and friend.
Our mission is to raise money to build homes for the women and orphans of Burundi.
Together, we will meet this mission one step at a time by working with Sister Connection, a non-profit Christian organization, to raise money to build homes through running pledges.
In 2013 my goal is to raise enough to build 10 more homes and to provide solar-powered lighting for 30 homes. I will do this by running three 100-mile ultra-marathons.
I’m asking you to run with me by making a financial commitment to help us meet this mission.
