DESTINATION TOUGHMAN: 6 Days Until Race Day

 

“My songs know what you did in the dark…

 

So, light ‘em up-up-up,

Light ‘em up-up-up

Light ‘em up-up-up

 

I’m on fire!!!”

It’s race week for me and the girls. Elizabeth and Lauren are competing in their ToughKids Race on Saturday, September 7th. My Toughman Race starts early the next morning.

 

To kickoff the week, we are starting with the video Elizabeth has selected as her race week song. If there was one lesson she learned this summer it’s to select the things you want to do and then go “light ‘em up.” Give everything you got, analyze the results, and then get back in there with the goal of improving. Not bad for a 9 year old…

 

Congratulations, Elizabeth! Light ‘Em Up on Saturday…

 

Descriptions of our (5) Freedom’s Light charity organizations are below. Please consider giving today! Also, please let me know when you do…

 

God Bless,

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. At Fisher House, no family pays to stay at their facilities. Why? Because a family's love is good medicine…

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear - away from their families, friends, and the comforts of home.  In 2003, the USO discovered the changing needs of those thousands of deploying troops.  Understanding the impact that the little things can have and difference they can make, the USO launched Operation USO Care Package providing comforts of home in the form of a care package.  For as little as $25.00 you can send a care package letting a service member know that you care.
