As an ambassador for Outdoor Mindset, a group that is near and dear to my heart, I am taking on the American Birkebeiner this winter. For those not familiar with the race, it is a 50k (31mi) ski race in northern Wisconsin. I did the race last year just for fun and felt that in order to do indulge the masochist in me this year, it needed to be more meaningful. The long ski is my challenge but your challenge is to help me raise some money for Outdoor Mindset! Sponsor a kilometer (39 and 2 are really good ones) or be a general sponsor-either way you will be helping out a great cause and a special group of people.
Here is a little more information about the organization: Outdoor Mindset is an organization that unites and inspires individuals facing neurological challenges through a common passion for the outdoors. The organization is making this happen across the country through local meet-ups and online connections. It has helped me feel more normal as I have navigated my epilepsy diagnosis and helped me make connections with other people living with the same diagnosis.
