Rick Gordon

My dad died running a road race in 1996 at the age of 56. My father-in-law died playing racquetball at the age of 58 in 2001. I have been involved in athletics my whole life, but running was never my favorite. In 2013 my daughter Ashley decided she wanted to run the Free Press Half Marathon so I decided to run with her. Ever since I've been hooked and have run 4 other half marathons to date.

Now my focus is on helping others through Hope Water International.
