And our superhero of the Month Amber Blackwood
This past weekend our eight person team walked, biked and even moved mushroom logs in support of several excellent Charlotte based organizations that support kids and their families dealing with the throws of cancer. Together we raised almost $1,800 and came in second place for a team in this new event 24,000 Mile Challenge (click this link if you wish to make a donation).
And we are SO EXCITED TO SHARE that our own Wind River team member Amber Blackwood walked 26.2 miles this weekend for the Little Hero Challenge!!! This was her audacious goal to start off 2021 doing good for others. Amber, a superhero in her own right, is an artist, retired art teacher, a 2x (or is it 3x?) ovarian survivor, Wind River Alum, and a now a MARATHON WALKER!!!
24 Foundation is the organization behind 24 Hours of Booty (pun intended!), a 24 hour cycling/walking event each summer that raises monies for the cancer community. Wind River is a very proud beneficiary again this year of support from the supporters of 24. THANK YOU for all you do!!!
