On Thursday August 21st, while most of you are warm and snug in your beds, Philip Sneyd, a member of the Veytia Group with Keller Williams, is going to attempt to RACE the rigorous and dangerous Grand Canyon "Rim-to-Rim" trail. He will cover a distance of 24 miles - over 11,000 feet in elevation changes, and face 115 degree temperatures. Most who attempt this brutal crossing, take an average of 3 Days. The Goal - To complete this Challenge in 8 hours or less!!!
The purpose of this run is to raise funds for C.A.F. (Challenged Athletes Foundation). A tragic auto accident in 2001 changed Philip's family when his father lost the use of his leg and will need a prosthetic limb in the future.
“It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem encourages independence and enhances quality of life.”
