Giving Back – Not My Medals to Keep…

There has been so many roller-coasters with dealing with grief and then world catching wind of what we are doing with Run Rolo Run. Its been a blessing to be able to be able to share my story with news and radio. Every interview I go into it asking God for guidance eon the right words to say. Every time there is peace and we just go. Thank you again KSN, KFH Radio, KGSO Radio and the Times Sentinel for helping us get the word out.

You can see all of our interviews on the NEWS FEATURES page.

One of the things I have learned the most is that you should live with a giving heart. Sometimes this is easier said then done but as I grow into truly realizing about this journey and what new path in life should be, I try to have an open ear and an open mind on what is the right thing to do.

With each run I try to learn something new behind on why I am doing the run. Oh for sure I have a new passion for running and it is a definitely a new part of my life. I just want to make sure to choose races with a purpose. We also want to be able to continue to help and give back as much as possible with the donations and support we give.

Here is what we have done with our DONATIONS and sales from our SHOP so far:

Donated $100 to Combating COVID-19 As a Community

Donated $150 to aid Shari Warner with medical expenses and COVID-19 related financial difficulties.

Donated $50 to Heartspring’s Autism Walk – Team Alex Madrigal (Walked on the Team also)

Donated $50 to Step up for Kids in Josh McNeelys Honor – (Ran on the Team also)

FYI, with you support we have started the 501c3 Non-Profit filing process!

I couldn’t get past the feeling there was some unfinished and I just had a rustling inside me that there was something else I needed to give away to the most important people that we originally started this for. I kept looking at the wall of the medals and the pictures of the original Honor Runs and it came clear to me, “These are not my medals, these are theirs.” So my wife and I delivered all the medals to the families of the ones we ran for. It was amazing feeling for us to see and hear about the happiness this brought to them.

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7
