It takes some pretty incredible people to do all that Chasing4Life accomplishes each year around the country. From nationwide educational tours to disaster recovery and response, from program creation to professional training and consultation, the Chasing4Life Team is a passionate, dedicated and energetic group of experienced professionals.
Why does this team work so diligently? This team believes that we can change the world. They believe that with more education we will need less response. They believe that our responders across the United States deserve more than our thanks; they deserve more resilient and educated communities. They believe that the children in our communities have the potential to solve the problems we struggle with every day and that their potential is the greatest of any generation yet.
This team is not only a group of educators. The Chasing4Life team is an experienced group of disaster responders, many with years and years of experience in disaster response, emergency response and even animal rescue. They are trainers, prepared to take their knowledge, energy and expertise to any point on the map to train volunteers before or in the midst of disaster.
This team is dedicated to promoting education and those institutions that offer education of any kind. They are a unique group of mixed personalities, character and visions. They come from different generations and backgrounds, each with a drive to see their efforts become a catalyst for change. They have seen America's communities at their best, and have seen them at their worst.
