If you’re a runner or cyclist who enjoys collecting SWAG, or even if you don’t,Powered to Moveis hosting a 30 day virtual challenge where you can log miles and collect your SWAG. The 30-day challenge is calledRays and Wavesand it’s a fundraiser. But the good news in this fundraiser is that you don’t have to strong arm all your friends to support you per mile, kilometer to whatever. Once you pay your entry fee of $30 you’re done…except for logging those miles and collecting your SWAG. And this race is virtual so you can participate any time, anywhere during the month of May.
Where do the funds from this fundraiser go? Powered to Moveis a non-profit whose mission is to promote physical fitness among persons with disabilities to increase their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.Rays and Waveswill supportPowered to Movein their goal to make these opportunities for physical fitness both physically and financially accessible to those they serve…people who could not participate on their own.
What kind of opportunities? If you’re a Boston Marathon fan you may have seen Team Hoyt cross the finish line...they've run it over 30 times. Dick and Rick Hoyt are a father-son team who competes in marathons, triathlons and other races. It all started when Rick was 15 years old. Rick has physical disabilities and he told his parents (through a communication device) that he wanted to participate in a charity race. So Dick made it happen. He entered them in the race, pushed Rick in his wheelchair the entire 5 miles and they crossed the finish line together. Team Hoyt was born and they continue to race together to this day. They have even developed a racing chair andPowered to Movehas two of those chairs that they loan to people with disabilities so they can achieve dreams similar to Rick’s: they compete in a race. Powered to Moveengages able-bodied volunteers as wing-men to come along side people with disabilities. The volunteers (usually a team of 2 or 3) supply the power for people with disabilities to cross the finish line in races across the DFW Metroplex.
But that’s not allPowered to Movedoes. Powered to Moveraises funds for their grant program where applicants with disabilities can apply for grants for adaptive sports equipment. This enables grant applicants to develop and sustain physical activity which arguably contributes to quality of life. AnotherPowered to Movegrant program engages personal trainers to provide specialized, adaptive personal training for people with disabilities…something one Physical Therapist called a “game changer” for people released from rehab after a spinal cord injury, brain trauma or on-set of a disabling diagnosis.
Will you help? $30 and logging miles you would likely be logging anyway is all it takes to significantly impact the lives of people with disabilities.

If you’ve ever wondered how and why things happen in the City of
"My husband and I have had the privilege of working with Desha professionally for the last year. She was instrumental in our home purchases, rental purchases, and home sales.
Desha was able to help my husband, who had not exactly kept his home in sales-ready order, transform his home into the most desirable in our market. Her expertise and patience made his home-selling experience smooth and successful. Our next task was finding a home that our blended family could not only afford, but fit into. Desha knew exactly how to tackle the task and made sure we were first on scene to any home that fit our criteria. She did the leg work of coordinating with other realtors and pushing the process along when pushing was necessary. We were able to move closer to our children’s schools, stayed well within our price range, and all occurred within the tight time frame we had to fit into.
My husband and I would highly recommend Desha to anyone for both selling your home and buying a new one. She can, and will, help with any part of the process and always stays in constant communication."
