Team Optima

Support me as I take on the Challenge for former foster youth and their educational goals!  I've already covered my race costs, so your entire donation goes toward Orangewood Foundation education support that includes college scholarships, mentorships, and more! Together, we can help Orangewood prepare foster and community youth to reach their greatest potential!  The event is going to be a true test of my physical and mental abilities. While you can’t help me with that, you can help me achieve my fundraising goal. Making a donation is a lot easier than participating in the race!


Raised So Far


Of My Goal


My Goal

On September 15th, I am competing in the 3rd Annual Orangewood Adventure Challenge to raise money for vital support and services for former foster youth, including college scholarships. Along with my three teammates, I will be running, mountain biking, kayaking, and completing a few surprise elements over a 25-mile course on Catalina Island. For this event, each Challenger makes a $2,000 tax-deductible donation to Orangewood Foundation and is asked to raise an additional $8,000 for Orangewood through sponsorships from family, friends and colleagues.
