Keith's Story in his words:
I am fundraising for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports program. I find this program to be near and dear to my heart because I have a child with disabilities. As a disabled veteran myself, I also know several veterans who's committed selfless service has led to a disability.

If I could take a few minutes of your time to share with you some information about the event I would truly appreciate your consideration for a donation.

As you may know I have been active in endurance events for many years now. The running and triathlon community has done so much to help me. Which made me realize it's time I do something more than just pay an entry fee. I was fortunate to find an event that I'm not only interested in but is also supporting a very worthy cause. I have challenged myself to compete in a 100 mile endurance run next summer.
 This will test every aspect of my physical and mental ability. The Vermont 100 uses the proceeds from it's event to support the Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports program. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing recreational and competitive sports opportunities to people with disabilities. I take for granted every day my ability to even consider participating in a running event. There are many who will never have such an opportunity. This program will help them to build self-confidence and independence as an individual through adaptive sports.

I watched my disabled son Patrick smile from ear to ear when he participated in an adaptive program. Patrick suffered a traumatic brain injury which has led to limited use of his right arm and leg. He also has restricted vision and is unable to speak. However, despite his disabilities, he was able to ski down a mountain with the help of adaptive devices and truly passionate volunteers. I would love others to feel such a boost in confidence as well.

I understand it's difficult to reach in your pocket and contribute money. However I ask that you consider those who could benefit from your donation. Any amount at all would be greatly appreciated.
I have a goal of raising at least $6,000 however I'm confident with your help I can far exceed that.
