On Tuesday we added a further member to the CWT RAAM crew. An amazing man called Jim Grindeland. He is based in Minneapolis. We first met there a few weeks ago at a CWT Town Hall in part dedicated to building the crew.
He and I had been discussing the potential for his joining the team on and off since then.
First thing Tuesday I fired up my laptop and dealt with a few over night emails. I had one from Jim saying he was still able to make the RAAM team, asking and answering a few questions we had been exchanging. Right at the end he added this:
As I mentioned above [in his original emai], I’m doing 7 days 7 marathons next week. I was wondering if I could dedicate my runs to the ECPAT cause too.
Would it ok if I posted the ECPAT Charity Link on my Facebook page and ask people to donate?
Would it be ok?!
Jim is doing the The Riverboat Series next week. That is seven marathons in seven days, starting Monday 10th April. That is a staggering undertaking. It is an honour to have him on the team and humbling he’d dedicate this effort to ECPAT. If he has the energy to update us on his progress on Facebook I will be sure to share it with the CWTRAAM2017 group.
I keep meeting amazing people on this project. Please join me in cheering Jim on!
