Tell us about some of your community activities:
Living in a small town, I think it is important to be actively involved in your community.

What drives you to volunteer?
I like to be hands-on with organizations that I believe in or causes that I'm passionate about. My primary drive comes from wanting to be a good example to my two children. I especially enjoy the personal rewards I get from volunteering for our church and my kid's activities. Plus, volunteering can be a lot of fun!
What is your Dream Fund goal?
My Dream Fund personal goal is to complete a Half Marathon race this year. My coworkers are helping me accomplish my goal by asking me about my training runs and offering lots of encouragement.

I plan to utilize my Dream Fund towards funding the expenses of traveling to the destination half marathon race and splurging on a celebratory meal with my family.
