Would you consider doing something outlandish for food allergy research?
Did you listen to my latest podcast? I interviewed extreme fitness challenger Mike Monroe. This guy is crazy! He is going to do three thousand burpees for food allergy research. Yes, I said three thousand. Did I mention it is going to be in less than twelve hours? Yes, I said twelve hours. Mike is going to complete this monumental feat on January 25th in Washington D.C. at Children's National Medical Center. Children's National is doing cutting edge research on cellular modification to prevent food allergy and Mike's son Miles is a patient there. When we spoke, you could tell that the physicians and researchers at Children's National not only do research but they also care deeply about their patients and Mike wants to further their cause.
Mike is a a former Marine and pretty serious guy. My guess is that he is one tough cookie. But as soon as we talked about food allergies and his son Miles, the emotional gate broke – just like it does with all food allergy parents, ex-Marine or not. He told me that Miles has dealt with multiple food allergies most of his life and how Miles is tougher than he could ever be. He shared the familiar story of being a food allergy parent and learning valuable lessons of resilience and fortitude.
Mike Monroe is doing something extreme to help our food allergy kids. Ways you can help get the word out and donate:
