IRONMAN ST. BERNARD
No, not the latest incarnation of the 140.6 distance on the WTC or NAS schedule. Rather this is a project that my travel sponsor and business mentor has put together. www.mattgiven.com
Matt Given will be racing in Kona in 3 weeks and in doing so is hoping to raise money to help rebuild a home in St. Bernard Parish that was damaged by Katrina. He and his kids have traveled down to the area to assist in the rebuilding efforts. When I was about their age my parents also introduced me to such volunteering and life perspective/helping others events. On the one hand it has given me the view that I am very lucky and thankful for the things that I have and on the other it is a constant reminder that we are in this life together and need to lend a helping hand to assist those in need.
So drop by Matt's site and subscribe to his RSS feed at http://ironmanstbernard.blogspot.com/ and if you have the means pitch in some $$$ and help out those knocked down by Katrina. Why? Because doing good is simply the right thing.
