While I regularly run 5Ks, fun runs, and other races that benefit various charities, I have a few main charitable and volunteer efforts:
Batfrog’s Walkin’ for Cancer: raising money for pancreatic cancer research since 2010, and dressing like a damn fool while doing it. The 2014 campaign raised over $1500 and saw me running a 5k dressed as Darkwing Duck. You can check out the photos here. In 2016 I started running the Hirshberg Foundation’s LA Cancer Challenge at UCLA (still benefits pancreatic cancer research, just for a
better different charity). We raised over $1250 and I ran the 5k course as Oscar the Grouch – see the photos here!
Girl Scouts: I’m a Gold and Silver Award recipient, a lifetime member, and a local knots & lashings instructor.
