I did it. I started running again. And before we go any further, let's be clear about something...I HATE RUNNING! So, if I'm going to purposefully do something that I so passionately dislike, I may as well jump straight in to the deep end, right?
So, with that said, I've decided to run an Ultra Marathon (50 kilometers/31 miles). Why(?!?) you might ask. Well, rest assured that I often (during my training runs) am asking myself the very same question. The unique thing, though, is that my mind and my heart always give me the same answer..."It's not about you." And its not...its truly not. Let me explain.
About 2 years while listening to a Tony Robbins podcast, I was made aware of a man named Tim Ballard and the organization he started, "Operation Underground Railroad. (ourrescuue.org)." This is an organization that is literally saving children all across the globe from the horrific realities of Human Sex Trafficking. The more you dive in the their mission, the more stories of rescues and heroics that you hear, the more your heart breaks that this is a reality that millions young boys and girls face every single day.
Supporting this organization is something that God has put on my heart. I can do something and I will do something. I have committed to raise $1,250.00 for Operation Underground Railroad for my upcoming Ultra Marathon that I am running in Zion National Park (April 18th, 2020). I am hopeful that you will join me by graciously and generously giving to this organization. I am happy to answer any and all questions that you may have with regard to more specifics about why I chose this charity, my decision to run an Ultra, etc. I have included my cell phone number below.
O.U.R. has made the process of donating extremely easy...you can simply donate on this page, or you can even donate via text message. 100% of all donations go DIRECTLY to Operation Underground Railroad.
I have also included links to some incredible videos and podcasts that will shed a little more light on Operation Underground Railroad:
