Three years ago I was invited to emcee the Chasing Chad Fundraising Gala and little did I know that being a part of this event would change my life. Chad Bordwell was a husband, father and an athlete who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 2009. Sadly, Chad lost his battle with cancer, but his memory lives on through Chasing Chad who continues to raise money for families who are impacted by this terrible disease.  

Chasing Chad also raises money for research and outreach by working with local hosiptals and doctors who are working hard to find a cure. The money donated to Chasing Chad goes to families who, in their darkest hour, can find hope and light though this organization.

In life Chad was an avid runner and athlete and when Chasing Chad first started, Chad's friends and family pledged to complete a marathon (26.2 miles) of physical activity in the month of December 2009 to support their friend, collegue, son, husband and father. With the Chasing Chad gala coming up this September, during the month of August I am pledging to run a total of 100 miles and in doing so I hope that this year I can help raise money which will be donated at the 2022 Gala! 

I encourage you to join me on this tribute to Chad as I attempt to raise money for this worthy cause.  

So you read the goal right - 100 miles in the month of August and my hope is that we can raise $10 per mile for a total of $1,000! 

Will you join me? Will you be the difference in someone's life?

I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you as we hit the treadmill, fun outdoor trails and maybe even share some runs with the Chasing Chad team.  

I thank you in advance for you donation!
