Her message to others is in her beautiful hands. This woman shakes because of her abusive past..
My Favorite Photo Of 2016
The picture speaks for itself. I love this photo.
Child Abuse Prevention Photo Shoot
These were some great photos that KAM Photography took for our Live for 175 Campaign. This year I stood suspended in a glass case, fasting for 7 days to call attention to child abuse awareness. These kids were great!
KAM took these and refused to charge us considering it was for the kids. Local star KAM! Thank you again.
It's Never Too Late To Make A Stand
This great man was listening and asked for a sign. His message was powerful on one of the last days during our 2016 campaign. The story touched so many people and another life was changed.
St. Luke's Miracle Workers
No words could express my gratitude to these women. They helped save our son's life and I will be forever in debt to them. I can barely have a conversation without losing it. Yesterday they were just employees at a hospital that wore scrubs and today they're my heroes.
She Touches My Life Every Year
We don't talk much about why, but I love visiting with my friend each April. These kids will endure more than most of us adults in our entire lifetime. I love that smile.
This Mom Takes A Stand
Her story moved others and she will have saved others just by standing up to spread the message, "It shouldn't hurt to be a child."
Rick and Carly From WOW Country 104.3
I have so much respect for these two amazing people. Rick and Carly hosting the morning show at WOW Country 104.3 and that's not all they do. They both have their own foundations to give back to kids and they came to ride for the same children they help.
I've been very lucky to work within this radio family of greatness. Thanks Rick and Carly!
This was our great friend who came out each year with a smile to devote her time for the cause. Our friend passed away after Live for 175 in 2016. I never knew that she was a survivor till right before she passed.
She was a walking reminder that we take life for granted. This amazing woman devoted her life to making others smile and always saw the greatness in people,
I love you Mandy and wish I had more time to express my gratitude. You will be my forever inspiration. Thanks for letting me be your friend.
My Owl Angel Sofia
Sofia is a courageous, strong, and inspirational little lady. She's NOT a little girl. Any person who has encountered the health issues that she has faced and overcome is nothing less of HERO. I really don't have many words at this moment.
Sofia brought this Owl to our son Lennox who spent a very scary time in the hospital. We like to call her our Owl Angel.
Cycle to Break the Cycle
Cycling with our little friends as momma Jen Romero takes these shots.
Kekeluv in Scrubs
I wore these for our medical community for the day. These men and women see more than any of us will ever know.
She Rides for The First Time
Handicapped because of texting while driving, this courageous woman takes her first steps and pedals on a bike for the first time. She is surrounded by a team from St. Luke's Children's Hospital. This was a truly emotional moment.
The Flag Flow For The Kids
The United States Airforce presented me with a flag that was flown specifically for Live for 175. This cherished American flag was flown over hostile waters and in the most dangerous areas of the world. The brave men and women in our Armed Forces documented every location and ships including aircraft that took care of it.
This is our own piece of history for a cause that even across the world people wearing an American flag believe, It shouldn't hurt to be a child.
The Challengers Plus One
That's one amazing man with a heart of GOLD. I would do anything for him without pause because he has done the same. Thank you John and Kimberly for your continued support from day one till right now.
My Little Hero
My Hero comes back to hold a candle.
This conversation and message between myself and this little hero will never be forgotten. This little man took our message to class, spoke to his class about the phrase, It Shouldn't Hurt To Be a Child.
A student came forward because of this brave, young man, and told the truth about being abused by a family member. That person in the family was prosecuted that night because of this little conversation you are looking at now. Truly inspiring.
Fox News Interview
This was the first year of Live for 175 and I was live on Fox News for a pretty lengthy interview. This was day four I believe and I was soooo tired, but soooooooo worth it for the message.
Just a poweful message.
Prayer Before My Run
7 marathons in 7 Days. If you've ever run 26 plus miles in one day, the last thing you want to do the next day is move. Imagine doing it 6 more times. This was physically the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but the most fullfilling. I loved every mile of it.
7 Day Fast For The Kids
This was the third year and I fasted for 7 days on a billboard in Downtown Boise to push our message.
Chad (Co-Host Morning Show) pulls a few mics off mean as they take me out to check my vitals. Staying up without sleep for 7 days is no joke. We all miss Chad. He was just as important to pulling off this event for child abuse prevention as anyone else.
Live for 125 - Where It Originated
These started because of a little girl's tragic death in Spokane, Washington. This little angel's name was Summer and she's the reason it all began. I stayed up for 125 hours without sleep in Spokane and brought that to Boise where we broke 175 hours without sleep.
