About us / Reports and Financials

That trip was the single most challenging thing I had done until that point in my life. I came out of it a more honest and patient person. Now I make a priority of recreating that sense of challenge so I can be a better person to myself, my friends and family and my community. I owe you so much. Thank you for helping to create the better person I am today.
