Unleash The CEO

Overcoming Obstacles

John Cooper, Kids Central CEO, willing to risk life and limb to provide an extra special Christmas for local foster families.

For the last year and a half, I’ve participated in many challenging obstacle course races. I’m no beginner, but next month, I’m elevating the challenge and fundraising goal by pledging my participation in the Spartan Central Florida “Beast”.  All in the name of raising funds so our foster children and families have an extra special Christmas!

What is a “Spartan Beast” – it’s a muddy off-road half marathon with over 30 challenging obstacles!  The other obstacle races I’ve completed have been half the length.

I’ve been asked, “Are you crazy?! Aren’t you old?” No, I’m not crazy and yes, I am well over 50. To be honest, I have never even run a half marathon, but I have run 10 miles twice in my life.  Unfortunately, neither of those runs occurred in the last 25 years!  I will be putting in some miles during the next 5 weeks to prepare. My wife, children, and coworkers are quick to tell me I can’t do it – what do you think? Whether you believe I can or can’t, your financial support will absolutely ensure my physical suffering. Please donate today to assist our foster children in “Overcoming Obstacles”!
