Two weeks from today I will run Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota. As I enter my final training period, for inspiration I'm reading John Wood's book, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World. Mr. Wood was a senior level Microsoft executive who left his company to bring books to the children of Nepal.

My marathon effort will re-build a rural school in China. Although I may not have the connections of a gentleman like John Wood, my effort will make a difference to 35 children in JiaYou. Please consider a pledge to help the children. I will be contributing both money and sweat to this effort. eMail your pledge to me, Rich Hoeg, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
