Giving Back

From an early age, I was taught to help others and support those who are less fortunate. It’s something I have always done, and something I instilled in my kids when they were growing up. As the CEO of Eclipse, I feel it’s equally important to reflect that position throughout the company and use our position to help others in need.

Over the years, I have been blessed to see how the small efforts of a few people or even just a small contribution to an organization can create positive change in the lives of the less fortunate. One organization that I am very close with is the Wounded Warrior Project. Having traveled to countries across the globe, I recognize the freedoms we enjoy in the US, and the brave service men and women who help to protect us. I have tremendous respect and admiration for our military members, many of whom give the greatest sacrifice in support of our country.

To help show my appreciation, I’ve been trekking across the country on my bike to raise money and awareness for the WWP. I set out on this journey to not only push my physical limits, but to also use this ride to help our veterans achieve their goals well after they return home.

This ride is one of the most physically-challenging things I have ever undertaken, and one of my proudest accomplishments. You can continue to follow my updates on this blog. As we begin the season of giving, I invite you to remember the men and women of our armed forces and give what you can to help show your support.
