We'll dig deep this weekend, will you be a part of the team?

2013 Furnace Creek 508
Thanks to everyone that has responded to the call for action in the email campaign that I launched this past weekend. The 508 is a significant endeavor to train for that requires both physical and mental training. And unlike the epic Grand Tours such as the Tour de France, the "team" is on the podium at the finish and each racer on the team is recognized equally.  While the team may have varying levels of skill, all members of the team motivate and drive the best that each has to give that day or night on the 8 Stages of this 510.4 mile non-stop race.

Just as I consider my wife and children as team mates supporting and motivating me from afar during this and past four 508 races, I like to think that everyone that has donated to the ONETOUGHRIDE project over the past 5 years has been right alongside my family and I in being a part of the team that the Jeffrey Modell Foundation and amazing doctors and scientist's like Dr. David Lewis are on. This team raises awareness and funds and leads research to find treatments, and one day a cure for Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases. They work incredibly hard and dedicate endless hours to the cause.

My team of the Racing Roosters and I will dig deep this weekend and there's a lot that can happen over 510.4 miles of non-stop racing even when everything goes right. If you haven't clicked the Just Give link yet I am challenging YOU to dig deep and support the cause.

Just like it will take the support of the team to make it to the finish in Reno this weekend, it takes the support of a team to ensure amazing organizations like the Jeffrey Modell Foundation and incredible doctors and scientists like Dr. David Lewis are able to accomplish the goals that they strive for.

The challenge is personal but the impact is global, WILL YOU dig deep?
