Runner’s High Acai Bracelet

What a crazy week it’s been.  With the recent election of our Country’s 45th President, it’s been difficult to see so much sadness, fear, anxiety, and turmoil in the lives of people around me and the world.  Despite who you voted for, we truly have to pick ourselves up and come together. My Facebook feed alone, is a continuous scrolling of negative posts, and fighting.  I have to admit, last Wednesday, I felt like I was walking around in a fog, stunned.  As I started to feel sorry for myself and get sucked into the vortex of the web, I did a lot of thinking and soul-searching.  What can I do on a small-scale that would help others and keep me focused on the importance of what makes me happy?  My family, friends, running, and animals make me the most happy in life.  I also love making my Mala and Acai beaded bracelets.  Then an idea popped into my head! I could make my “Runner’s High” Acai bracelets and give 50% of the proceeds on each bracelet to VASS.  Vermont Adaptive.org . This is taken from their website; Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is the largest year-round disabled sports non-profit organization in Vermont offering the most diverse program opportunities and unique, specialized equipment. Vermont Adaptive promotes independence and furthers equality through access and instruction to sports and recreational opportunities including alpine skiing, snowboarding, and other winter sports; kayaking, canoeing, sailing, cycling, hiking, rock climbing, tennis, horseback riding, and more. They serve clients of all abilities with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities from all over the world.  

The VT 100, which takes place in West Windsor, VT each July is one of the biggest fundraisers for VASS.  VT 100 Check out all that the VT100 does for VASS, every penny raised at the VT100 is given right back to VASS. I can’t wait to participate as a runner in 2017 along with hundreds of other athletes; horses, runners and riders. An incredible event raising money for an outstanding organization… helping EVERY BODY find their journey through sports.

So, please check out the RUNNER’S HIGH Acai Bracelet on my website and consider buying this beautiful, inspiring running bracelet for you, a loved one, or BFF.  Keeping in mind that 5o% will be going to VASS. Runner’s High Acai bracelet.
