The YEAR of FORTY.

Through a chain of events which made me to grow up in Poland and then led me firstly to Canada and then to the U.S. over the course of the last fourteen years, I was privileged to live through unique experiences that made me who I am now. Today would probably look differently if at any point of time I took alternate steps. Many miracles have happened since my last vist to Nepal, with many more to come, for which I am very thankful as they exuberate my humility and gratitude.
As a way to mark my big day and big year - to celebrate life, health and vitality, value of life, friendship and family, I want to give back to the less fortunate at this moment in time and to acknowledge a special place that all of that have commenced – Nepal.

Subsequently, I signed up to: run three half- marathons (Miami, Boulder, Chicago), one full – marathon (San Francisco) and to climb a summit in the Mount Everest region - Pacharmo Peak, Nepal - 6,273m (20,581 ft) this year. By participating in those events I am raising funds to support the Basa Village Foundation.
The Basa Village Foundation USA Inc. is a US non-profit corporation and the Basa Village Foundation Nepal is an NGO base in Kathmandu. The two foundations work together on projects. USA based foundation raises $ and provides expertise.  Nepal draws up plans and disburses the $ for approved projects.  The latest projects involve rebuild homes and schools in the Basa area as well developing a nurse education project to fund the education of an Registered Nurses to return to the Basa area. Both organizations are all-volunteer based with no overhead/administrative costs.  100% of donations go to the projects. More information can be be found here:

As the 1st anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Kathmandu, Nepal approaches, please join me
in bringing relief and addressing the still most urgent needs while impacting and changing lives of many, by restoring the life they have always known.

As you may remember I have dedicated ‘My Year of Forty’ to celebrate life, health, vitality, friendship and family, and by giving back to the less fortunate at this moment in time and to acknowledge the special place where my reinvented life journey had commenced – Nepal.
Today, ten months in to 2016, I have finished Miami Boulder and Chicago half marathons, full marathon in San Francisco and I am counting days to the beginning of my trek in Nepal where i plan to climb a summit in the Mount Everest region - Pacharmo Peak - 6,273m (20,581 ft) Emotions are running high, experiences have been immensely rewarding and the pains in my body undoubtedly annoying and disturbing. Nevertheless it is my “why” that keeps me accelerating when I want to stop. It fuels me when I feel I have reached the “reserve” while the nearest “gas station” is still miles away. It is the support I have received to date. It is the propelling vision of collective ability to positively impact people’s state of being – doing the least I can while living a privileged life. By participating in those events I am raising funds to support the Basa Village Foundation. All funds raised are supporting ongoing projects as well most urgent needs. Thank you for considering the support to my “why” and along with me helping to restore the modest yet dignified life the Nepalian people have always known.

‘The Year of FORTY’ – An update

As you may remember I have dedicated ‘My Year of Forty’ to celebrate life, health, vitality, friendship and family, and by giving back to the less fortunate at this moment in time and to acknowledge the special place where my reinvented life journey had commenced – Nepal.
Today, eight months in to 2016, I have finished Miami and Boulder half marathons, full marathon in San Francisco and face the Chicago half marathon coming up in just a week followed by my trek to Nepal to climb a summit in the Mount Everest region - Pacharmo Peak - 6,273m (20,581 ft) beginning in the mid-October. Emotions are running high, experiences have been immensely rewarding and the pains in my body (a chipped bone in my foot along with stress pain in my knee) undoubtedly annoying and disturbing. Nevertheless it is my “why” that keeps me accelerating when I want to stop. It fuels me when I feel I have reached the “reserve” while the nearest “gas station” is still miles away. It is the support I have received to date. It is the propelling vision of collective ability to positively impact people’s state of being – doing the least I can while living a privileged life. By participating in those events I am raising funds to support the Basa Village Foundation at https://www.gofundme.com/Basa-VillageNepal. All funds raised are supporting ongoing projects as well most urgent needs. Thank you for considering the support to my “why” and along with me helping to restore the modest yet dignified life the Nepalian people have always known.

3 days left till Boulder 1/2 marathon.! Join me in the effort to make a difference!
Commitment is an opportunity. Opportunity with uncertain outcome, because it is up to you, and only you, to make it happen. There is no luck. It is a battle that takes you where you are right now and the ingredients required to tackle it are straightforward: sacrifice, grit, and raw determination.
