I’ve just been accepted into a Golden Runner program to run an obstacle course race to raise money for charity.
As many OCR’s support charities and donate proceeds from their events to helping others, please help me continue this amazing trend of the OCR community supporting others, and embody the “Be Strong to Be Useful” philosophy of fitness upon which the methods I train – obstacle course racing, parkour, and ancestral fitness – are either based or draw much of their inspiration from (more on this hidden piece of physical education history in another post).
Check out my campaign page, provided by Everyday Hero, or read on:
My aim is to raise $500 for Cure Kids, by challenging myself to run the Loaded Tough Guy and Gal Challenge Palmerston North on June 6th.
If we can reach the target, I get free entry to run the race, Cure Kids gets all of the raised money, and hopefully some people will get inspired to get muddy and physically active.
Obstacle course racing has become my passion, and I would love to pursue it by entering races around the country this year. However, being a new father and a student, money is the limiting factor preventing me from doing what I love – such as participating in the Loaded Tough Guy and Gal Challenge. I train for this at least five days every week, as shown in the updates and photos I’ll be posting on the campaign page, and would love your support to allow me to race. Help me, and help me to help Cure Kids.
More about me:
I’m 27 years old and live in Wanganui with my partner and two young children. I’m about to commence the final year of a Bachelor of Business Studies at Massey University. My athletic background has included practicing parkour for 8 years, regularly training natural movement outdoors, and recently getting into obstacle course racing and mud runs.
Thus overcoming obstacles is what I practice. While such practice is about physical obstacles, there are also other, more figurative, obstacles in many areas of life to be overcome also, such as acquiring the resources and funds needed to conduct research into life-threatening illnesses – which is where Cure Kids steps up.
How you can help:
Please help me help Cure Kids by giving whatever you can.
The more people that know about Cure Kids, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing this page on social media or with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
