Hungry Bear Ultra

Hi Everyone.  On November 1, 2020, I will be running my first Ultramarathon.  It is 50 KM (31 miles) of winding, hilly, gorgeous trails in Putnam County.  The race, dubbed The Hungry Bear Ultramarathon, has about 4200 feet of elevation and is primarily over fairly technical trail terrain.  This year I will be doing the run alone for the obvious reasons but next year I plan to make this an annual event where we will have a much larger turnout and a big party at the end.  Because it is a four-loop course (two loops in each direction), participants will be able to choose to run 50KM, 25KM, or 12.5KM.

I'm hoping, as part of the event, to raise money to benefit a wonderful charity -- -- Nazareth Housing.  Any donation will help.  Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

Nazareth Housing is an incredibly impactful community-based nonprofit committed to the promotion of housing stability and economic independence among low-income families and individuals of New York City.  During these very difficult times, Nazareth has been feeding as many as 400 families in need every week. I personally feel so lucky that my family has enough to eat each day and I constantly find myself thinking about the millions of people in our country (many of whom are children ) who aren't so lucky.

Your donations, of whatever size, will inspire me as I run (slowly) and will immediately help those who are food insecure.  My family will match every donation that is made so your donation will have DOUBLE the impact right off the bat. Thanks and see you at the finish line!
