Be Inspired by Reach Athletes: Walk, Run or Ramble!

If youve been following me on Pazoo, you already know that I planned on running the NYC Marathon but was benched from training when I tore my meniscus this summer during a friendly front-of-house vs back-of-house soccer game. I may have played like Pele but it cost me my marathon dream. Im back at the gym and recommitted to getting in the best shape of my life.

You might also know that I am a 5-time cancer survivor. Five times that beast knocked on my door and every time, I gave it a proper beat down. But it wasnt easy especially on my family. Cancer is a family disease. What my wife and children went through is heartbreaking. So when I heard about Family Reach Foundation and the help they provide families who have children being treated for cancer, I was all-in. As families cope with years of medical treatments, out of pocket costs, everyday living expenses they often reach a breaking point having to make impossible choices. Family Reach is there to help with rent or mortgage payments; transportation; utilities; uncovered medical expenses and everyday living expenses that we often take for granted.

Celebrity trainer Kenji Freedman heads up Reach Athletes the pillar of Family Reach Foundation that focuses on athletic opportunities like BodieSynergy Brooklyn 10K. I cant run it this year but you can. If you live anywhere near Brooklyn, NY please do this race. The registration fee is $100 but you can make your race really count by becoming a Reach Athlete! Youll have your own personal fundraising page and get special benefits like group training clinics. When you register and put in the code: cheferic you get 50% of the fee so $50 to participate (and a cool tee shirt and chef treats).
