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’s educational 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.

If at all possible, please consider sponsoring me and contributing to the great work of Orangewood Foundation. More details on Orangewood are below. A donation of any amount will be appreciated.


Orangewood Foundation is one of the leading providers of services to current and former foster youth. Its mission is to prepare foster and community youth to reach their greatest potential. They help almost 2,000 foster and community youth annually prepare for independent adulthood.

Without guidance, encouragement and resources these teens are unprepared to make the transition from foster care to self-sufficient adulthood. Within 18 months 40-50% become homeless and unemployed. Orangewood programs focus on four critical areas: health & wellness, housing, life skills & employment, and education. They meet a broad array of needs: from groceries and a hot meal, to transitional housing, to life skills workshops and employment leads, to our innovative Samueli Academy charter high school and scholarships for college and graduate school. Click here to read more about the four service areas.

Beyond the programs, for thousands of youth in our community Orangewood means “family,” “opportunity” and “hope.”
