We Did It!

"Have Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals And Take Baby Steps." Leah Busque

We did it! Together we did it. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the Uttermost Challenge such a great success. 500 miles run. 1500 miles biked. 13 miles swum. But most importantly, $30,000 raised for families in need. Sum Ergo Zoom! Soli Deo Gloria!

The End of the Beginning

And, we're off: the final two days of the Uttermost Challenge with the whole FCS community running and biking at the Shelby Bottoms Greenway trailhead. We are less than $5000 away from our goal of $30,000 for the Chalmers Scholarship Fund. It is, of course, not the beginning of the end. Rather, to appropriate the inimitable phrase of Winston Churchill, it is the end of the beginning.

Uttermost Challenge Update

Week 12 of the Uttermost Challenge is now in the books; I got in a good 14-mile long run this morn; and we've got just six days and about $13,000 to go.  Won't you help us?  Donate online at the Uttermost Challenge site
Fewer miles running this week--because I've finished the run portion of the challenge: 500 miles in 12 weeks.  I finished the swim portion last week: 13 miles.  So now, only 80 miles of biking remain--with one week to go.  I want to finish those miles with the whole FCS community at the Uttermost Festival this coming Thursday and Friday at the Shelby Bottoms Greenway near downtown Nashville.

Uttermost Challenge Week 10 Update

With less than three weeks to go I've now run 447 miles, biked 1200 miles, and swum 10 miles. We're getting so close! The end is finally in sight!
But, now comes the hardest part: finishing strong, staying injury free, and of course, raising the scholarship support for deserving, needy students.  That after all is why we've undertaken this challenge in the first place.  Currently, our donations have topped $12,000. Won't you help us get all the way home? Please visit our website to donate right online.  As always, every little bit helps: pennies, nickels, quarters, dollars, widow's mites, whatever.
