I have had a really exciting week!!! First I announced that I will be competing in a Tough Mudder race in conjunction with raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Now I have another announcement!
I am in the running to receive a sponsorship from the national got milk? Campaign’s Team Refuel and receive a $250 grant!
Here is the essay that I submitted that made me one of the finalists!
I want to join Team Refuel because I feel like I have unofficially been part of the team for over one year now. Thanks to the advice of a friend and fellow runner, I started drinking chocolate milk after each run and work-out and I have been hooked ever since! Chocolate milk tastes great, replenishes my body & muscles and costs a lot less than sports drinks.
In April 2012, I will be competing in the toughest race I have ever signed up for, the Tough Mudder! Not only will I be running 12 miles and completing 27 obstacles, I will also be raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is “to honor and empower wounded warriors” through programs that “nurture the mind and body, and encourage empowerment and engagement.” Fundraising for the Wounded Warrior Project is my way of thanking service men and women for keeping me free, keeping me safe and keeping me running.
I plan to allot half of the grant money to the Wounded Warrior Project and use the other half for gear for the Tough Mudder race.
