Today my brother Eric would have turned 41. He took his own life almost 7 years ago after a decade long battle with opioids, mostly. He died on March 9, 2012. I dedicated my work today to him. I think of him every day and more on days like today. Miss him terribly and wish things could have been different. He lost hope.
Rock Thrill posted today. He, too, lost his brother. Joe Davis died of an accidental overdose after a long period of sobriety. The Davis Family has put on the Joe Davis Recovery Run for 6 years. The 7th Annual is March 9, 2019. Coincidentally, the date of my brother’s death. This race has raised over $200,000 to benefit the Keystone Substance Abuse Center in Rock Hill, SC. These funds provide HOPE for those who have lost it, or are close to losing it. Support of this race has a direct impact on our community. My challenge to our PAX today was to support this race and to tell at least one other person about it today. We are 4 months out. Please consider supporting. 52 registered already. Join us March 9 or support by sleeping in for the cause or sponsoring (several ways to do this). Big T-claps to Rock Thrill and the Davis family for pouring themselves into the race and the good they facilitate in the community. Personally, this race has given my family a way to help and to remember my brother Eric. Sincere thanks for that. The race was done the first Saturday in January for the first 6 years. It was bitter cold most of those years. Hopeful for better race day weather.
Strong work from the fellas this morning. Always an honor to lead the men of F3. Thankful for the fellowship men.
