Building a dream

When Jessica Peterson, A Home for Austin committee member, had the idea to hold a road race as a corporate challenge for A Home For Austin, the race’s name couldn’t be more fitting — by definition mettle means, “a person’s ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way.”
Peterson felt it was a fitting tribute to the little boy who the race was raising funds for — Austin Schoppert, of Tea. As you’ve read in previous stories Austin lost his arms and legs to a rare from of meningitis in 2009. A Home For Austin was a group formed  in 2012 with the goal of building Austin a handicap accessible home.
The corporate challenge was made possible by a generous donation from Valley Exchange Bank and Exchange Insurance of Lennox and Tea.  Roger Haugo, Valley Exchange Bank president said, “Our bank and insurance agency considered it a rare privilege to be able to help with such a genuinely worthwhile project that received such wonderful support from the communities of Tea and Lennox, as well as from innumerable generous people.”
The Mettle Run took place July 26 with a half marathon starting off from Lennox at 7:30 a.m. It was soon after that the rain came. However the weather didn’t dampen the spirits of those who participated.
