*Help us beat last year's goal!*
As a life long athlete, Marc Warren is no stranger to physically grueling endeavors. But this time he is using his skills to raise money for a good cause. Motivated by his daughter Ali Rothrock's work for first responder's mental health, Marc will be embarking on a one-day 150 mile bike ride on the Great Allegheny Passage. This passage stretches from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD and Marc will be biking to raise money for the National Volunteer Fire Council's Share the Load Hotline. This ride will begin at 5am on June 17th and end 12-15 hours later. Marc will not be using an ebike. The entire ride will be completed under his own power.
The NVFC’s Share the Load program works to break the stigma around behavioral health issues in the fire service, open up the dialogue in departments, and provide resources that departments and emergency personnel can use to prevent tragedies such as suicides. This includes the free, confidential Fire/EMS Helpline that first responders and their families can call for help with any behavioral health issue. Learn more about the program at www.nvfc.org/help.
Marc is grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness, money and challenge himself for such an incredibly important cause.
