We are delighted to announce that in April of 2015, Alex’s FUNdation donated $1,500 to the Rogue Valley Farm to School program and the Siskiyou Challenge. The Siskiyou Challenge, an event that was near and dear to Alex’s heart, is a multi-leg race in Ashland, Oregon that raises funds and awareness for the Rogue Valley Farm to School Program.
“Rogue Valley Farm to School educates children about our food system through hands-on farm and garden programs, and by increasing local foods in school meals. We work to inspire an appreciation of local agriculture that improves the economy and environment of our community and the health of its members.”
This gift really speaks to so many of Alex’s passions…running and the preparation that goes with competing, eating well, teaching kids about the bounties of the earth, and appreciating what our bodies and our hearts can do. We are proud to honor Alex’s passion for the people of Ashland and for this event, and we look forward to supporting younger generations of participants.
It was wonderful to have a men’s team and a women’s team race in Alex’s honor last year and we hope they will be back to defend their title this September 19th!
With gratitude and love,
