Gearing up for the run
August 05, 2016
The Barber Beast on the Bay is my opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments made this far on my journey to weight loss and a healthier me while also helping to raise funds for a programs the benefits those families with unique challenges. It is on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA. I will challenge myself to complete 10 miles of sand, water and trails for a combination of running, climbing, crawling, pushing and pulling through 20+ obstacles on the shores of Lake Erie. The annual event helps support the Barber National Institute and its work with children and adults with disabilities and behavioral health challenges. Having a brother in law with Autism and working with youth with a variety of special needs and behavioral health challenges this is one area near and dear to my heart. Anything that I can do to assist in the continuation, development, and implementation of programs that benefit individuals and their families whose perseverance allows them to accomplish each day of their lives is a worthy cause to me. Join me in raising funds to not only promote the Barber National Institue. Let's raise funds which will help in accomplishing their mission and with your contribution and my determination, cross the finish line together!
