Hi Angels, Tonight we are going to hear an incredible story from Brian Mora, a competitive athelete who took his love for running competitively and decided to dedicate his entire 2013 race season to Race 4 Chase in honor of  Chase Kowalski a 7 year old athlete  who died in the Sandy Hook school tragedy.  Over the course of the following 10 months, Brian completed 18 races of different  distances, totaling 391 miles for the year. Often times, this meant racing back to back weekends, and in one instance, it included completing the 2013 NYC Marathon just seven days after racing a 70.3 Half Ironman Triathlon in Miami. Originally, Brian scheduled the Miami 70.3 to be his final race of the season, but once he was contacted by Chase’s mom, Rebecca, and asked to run the NYC Marathon, it was something he was compelled to do.   Bria.undraising for Race 4 Chase using the 2013 race season helped him raise 30,000 dollars for the Chase Michael  Anthony Kowalski Sandy Hook  Memorial  foundation (CMAK) a community center to focus on physical and mental and physical wellness. Some of the joys Brian has experineced:   He  was able to meet and establish a friendship with Chase's family and others. Listen to his incredible story and how one shared idea with Brian and others  have created  life changing possibilities that affect masses of people.
