YOU can make a difference!

Join Eyes For Life and Dr. Heavin Maier as we raise $10,000 for local foster children! Ready, set, GO!

Letter from Dr. Maier:

I hope you’ve enjoyed a fabulous summer. We’ve been blessed to have been able to send our kids to a number of wonderful, enriching camps. That got me thinking about how those opportunities are not financially feasible for many foster families to provide. I am on the board of directors for Lutheran Community Services Northwest (LCS), a multifaceted organization. One of the main focuses of LCS is the coordination of foster care placement in Spokane. LCS has expressed to me the need for finances that will enable their foster-care kids to participate in extra-curricular activities. I think you would agree that these activities are vital for good health, positive self-image, goal-setting, teamwork, and keeping kids on a drug-free path.

Since February 2016, I’ve been on a journey to better health that has been life changing. I have Physzique Fitness to thank for my transformation and for its partnership in this fundraising endeavor! When I found out about the financial need for these foster children, I decided to set a goal of raising $10,000 in order that these foster-care kids can pursue their extra-curricular passions! As part of the challenge, I have set a second goal: to complete the Seattle Spartan Beast on October 23rd.

The Beast is aptly named for its brutal 12+ mile circuit with more than 30 obstacles. I expect it will push me to my limits, taking 6 to 7 hours to complete. I imagine that having watched the recent Olympics, these kids will have big dreams of their own, as I saw this inspiration in my own children. With your support and with the cause before me, I know that I will be able to mentally conquer the challenges of climbing over 10 foot walls, crawling through mud under barbed wire, running miles up steep hills and performing burpee penance.

Eyes For Life will kickoff the drive with a $500 donation and will pitch in another $500 when we’ve met the $10,000 goal!
