Welcome to our fundraising page!
We are SUPER excited to run Hood to Coast this year in honor of an organization we are very proud to be a part of- ShelterBox USA. ShelterBox is a widely established international aid organization that provides emergency shelter and life-saving equipment following natural and man-made disasters.
Why are we doing it?
As many of you know, back in 2009 I worked on a project in Thailand serving at an orphanage for children displaced (some as a result of the devastating tsunami of 2004). It was a humbling experience, to say the least and it led me to form on-going ties with Oxfam and Save the Children (both of whom work closely with ShelterBox). That said, over the last 4 years, Steven's taken on an extraordinary and very active role as a ShelterBox response team member, hand delivering aid at some of the worst international disaster sites in history. I was so inspired by his experience/commitment and the mission of the organization that I recently signed on to be an ambassador for ShelterBox USA in Los Angeles.
So what are we doing exactly?
We are teaming up to run one of the longest and largest relay races in the
world!! The Hood to Coast course runs approximately 200 mi from Mount Hood, the tallest peak in Oregon, through Portland and out to the beach town of Seaside on the Oregon Coast.
The short and sweet of it?
We are showing ShelterBox some Coast to Coast LOVE (in more ways than one ;)
We are so excited for the challenge and for the opportunity to raise awareness and funding for this AWESOME organization.
