About the Campaign

My goal is to run across America, beginning in May, and to use this journey to raise more than $50,000 for the Building Homes For Heroes organization. It is my way of trying to show appreciation and gratitude for those who so bravely, and unselfishly, serve our country. Please join me in making a contribution to this organization that gifts homes, mortgage free, to disabled veterans. Thank you for your generosity and support!
