What philanthropic activities do you have?

I am the Washington, DC area elite team leader for Team World Vision. I help raise funds for kids over in Africa, spread the word about TWV in the community & lead weekly running groups. I have also help Wounded Warriors, Luke’s Wings, both military non-profits. This year I launched my own project called Run Ride Inspire. This project educates, inspires and encourage kids and kids at heart to live a healthy life, be active and help others. I also started Celebration Ride, a ride to celebrate my birthday by cycling from DC to NYC & visiting schools along the way.
