Reher Dopey Challenge for Team Stuckey

Don’t call him Crazy, don’t call him Goofy, just call him Dopey!
 
Kevin Reher, father of Dylan and Haley, is participating in the Walt Disney World Dopey Challenge in January, an extreme endurance event where runners take part in 4 different races over 4 days – a 5k on Thursday, a 10k on Friday, a Half Marathon on Saturday, and a Full Marathon on Sunday for a total of 48.6 miles.
 
An integral part of his journey and challenge will be fundraising for a good cause – and this is a way for others to join in this journey and challenge as well. 
 
Kevin is raising money to help fight the battle against breast cancer and to honor the legacy of a wonderful educator and leader that was taken way too early by this terrible disease.
 
During the 2012 Disney World Marathon Kevin posted on Facebook:
"Mile 22 in tribute to Mrs Stuckey of Highlands Elementary and her fight. I will not walk a step during mile 22 in recognition of all you do for our children."
 
This was a tribute to a wonderful leader and contributor to the Naperville community.  Susan Stuckey was the principal of Highlands Elementary School, a school that she developed into a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon award winning school (one of the highest prizes in education).  "Susan had a profound impact on my kids and the students in the local community through the hard work and dedication she showed, ensuring everything she did as 'All for the Kids.'"
 
Susan's memory and legacy will live with the community forever.  “Team Stuckey” and its scholarship were initiated by Susan and her husband, Jeff, as a way to give back to the Naperville District 203 community.
 
This year as part of Kevin's 48.6 mile challenge he is raising funds in honor and memory of Susan to keep her legacy alive and to benefit a couple of great causes.  Kevin invtites you to join him in the challenge this year by supporting either the Team Stuckey Future Educator Fund (through a donation to the Naperville Education Fund) or the Susan G Komen Foundation.  
Kevin is fully funding my race entry fees and travel expenses so 100% of the funds raised will benefit these great causes.
