Florida Keys Update

Hi All,

Crew member Anthony Portera did such an amazing update on his own blog that I am going to send you over to his blog:)
I would love to thank Anthony, his brother Johnathan, Helene, Todd, Buddy, Ashley x 2 and Stephanie for there love and support at the race. Through the good, the bad and the ugly they were all amazing. I am grateful.
I would like to thank race director Bob Becker for putting on a wonderful race that gave us all a good shot of sun and heat! As a race director myself I know all the time, effort, energy and love that goes into putting together an event. Although our entire team was not successful Bob sure made us feel that we were! Sister Marybeth spoke at the pre-race meeting and as far as her being able to get the word out about the cause and the problem of the Aids Orphans Rising was successful. You do know right here in America there are over 64,000 orphans this year and the number is growing!

"The best gift we can give to any child is to make that child feel wanted, loved and cared for because that child is the greatest gift of God."- Blessed Mother Teresa all because of Anthony!!! Thank you.
