Our Next Charity Partner: World Bicycle Relief!

We are people on the move. We run our errands, and we do our work by going here and there. Our kids go off to school, we get ourselves and our family to the doctor as needed, and the cycle goes on and on. It’s easy to take mobility for granted, because so much around our lives is designed — quite literally — to get us and our things around quickly, so we have more time to do more things. […]

As untamed and unpredictable as the Internet can be, there are a few universal truths across the digital landscape. First, it’s always wiser to never read the comments. Secondly, there’s nothing that can stop someone in their scrolling tracks than a baby animal. If that little creature is in trouble in any way, look out…because there’s likely going to be a stampede of people moving to do all they can for it. Take into consideration some of the smallest and […]

What — quite particularly — of an organization that plays and champions a sport near and dear to those who know the “magical” feeling of a hard-fought victory on the pitch? If the local and regional shutdowns had […]

seventh birthday cake

On Our Seventh Birthday

One year ago today, Potterhead Running Club celebrated it’s sixth birthday. On that day we had no idea what the coming year had in store for us.   It was a year of loss and tragedy. It was a year of stress and insecurity. We stayed home. Toilet paper became the currency of the realm. We found a new appreciation for teachers, restaurant employees, and grocery store workers. We learned how to Zoom. We made bread…so much bread.   All […]

Our Next Charity Partner: Dentaid!

Imagine suffering the agony of toothache, but having no way of seeing a dentist. Lack of dental care — dental access — is a widespread problem, particularly serious for those dealing with financial hardship or homelessness. Simply put, the people who need the services the most are the ones who get them the least. Sadly, more than 70 percent of the global population has no access to dental care of any kind. At this very moment, more than a billion […]
