Fundraising for the Texas Independence Relay

For the third year in a row, my team Blood, Sweat and Beers is racing in the Texas Independence Relay, a 203 mile journey along the Texas Independence Trail. We start in Bastrop and end east of Houston at the San Jacinto Monument. As many of you know, back in September 2011 Bastrop experienced incredible devastation when fires broke out, burned 34000 acres, and ultimately destroyed nearly 1700 homes.

The organizers of the relay have set up a fundraising option for registration into the relay. In order to earn our spot in the relay we must raise $2000 in the next 3 months. The funds raised will benefit both the restoration of Bastrop and also current and future Olympians with the Austin Track Club, promoting health and fitness to Texas children. Our team knew right away that this was how we wanted to earn our registration. The fact that the first leg of the relay goes right through the fire-ravaged Bastrop State Park makes it hit home even more that we need to help in any way we can.

It would mean so much if you could spare even a few dollars for our cause. You can donate at the following link:
