Why. In the middle of a global health crisis when people are dealing with unprecedented mental and financial challenges. When positivity, motivation and hope is at a low supply and depression, overwhelm and uncertainty prevail, we need people that can stand up and be examples of something extraordinary, something so positive that it inspires and starts a change reaction and increases people's willingness to act and make a difference.
With the far-reaching consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic manifesting every day, we are experiencing a time when a large percentage of people are losing their jobs, applying for unemployment, struggling to stay motivated, when almost everything that used to be normal, rewarding and fulfilling such as eating dinner in a restaurant and celebrating a birthday or graduation with friends and family is "cancelled".
Purpose. Dedicate this project to helping individuals who are struggling with PTSD, abuse and help them transform their lives. Do this by bringing awareness, raising and donating money to non-profit organizations that are making a difference. All proceeds will go directly to the following:
Shangrila Rendon: "Others race for achievement, for me it's about fulfillment. I'm fulfilling my personal dream. Making a positive global impact. Let's re-set what's possible. Let's all take action and contribute to something that matters. This project aims to accomplish something "Beyond Myself".
About. Shangrila Rendon: "I'm currently working on a new project with an intention to make a difference for others, inspire and motivate action. Right now when all the races are cancelled and moved to next year (2021), a lot of people are finding it difficult to keep their commitment to their health and fitness. There is also a sense of lack of power to do things, grow and improve. What people are not realizing is that feeling trapped and limited by the current situation doesn't need to derail and postpone their goals and dreams.
If everyone continues to postpone their goals and dreams until an undetermined time in the future, they put themselves in a state that lacks joy, inspiration and sense of purpose. Sadly, many even end up falling into a state of depression and hopelessness.
I want to do something about that.
If people saw someone in action setting an example, taking the lead and doing something extraordinary, my hope is that it would spark something in them and they will realize they CAN make things happen even despite the current limitations. They will realize that challenging times require creative and resourceful solutions. It may even encourage them to become responsible for what happens with their goals and plans. Taking purposeful action inspires, generates excitement in our lives and causes others to want to also contribute. Together we can make a difference!"
