I realize that I am beyond fortunate to be able to embark on adventures like this as a part of my career. If you are inspired by these efforts, please consider a donation to one of the organizations that are close to my heart.
Green Mountain Club
The mission of the Green Mountain Club is to make the Vermont mountains play a larger part in the life of the people by protecting and maintaining the Long Trail System and fostering, through education, the stewardship of Vermont’s hiking trails and mountains.
Without the Green Mountain Club, the Long Trail would not exist as it does today. Donate to the GMC here.
Exceeding Expectations was created by Cherie Gruenfeld in 2001 to re-direct the lives of at-risk kids in San Bernardino, California, using the sport of triathlon.
The primary goal of Exceeding Expectations is to get every member graduated from high school and college. Clearly, not every kid will find college to be the best personal choice, so we encourage kids to pursue whatever post-high school education will provide them the opportunity to change their lives for the better, including military service and starting their own businesses.
I have been involved with EE and John Alvarez's scholarship since June of 2017. Please consider donating to EE, and John, here.
