While driving to work this morning my two favorite DJ's interviewed Rick Hood, a Little Rock native who now resides in Houston, Texas. Long story short, Rick is an avid triathlete who is doing a wonderful, wonderful thing. He is biking from Houston to Little Rock (over 500 miles) to raise money for The Women's Home in Houston and Women and Children First in Little Rock. He will split all raised funds 50-50 between the two organizations.
He is biking for six days in order to come and do the Little Rock Marathon this Sunday (which will accomplish "the brick" aspect of his trek). I figured if Rick could bike 500 miles, I could give a little. I am hoping that some of my generous friends will do the same! Click here to do so... but at least check it out. We need more people like Rick in this world.
