Love INC is the center of resources and relationships, to move people out of poverty and into better futures in Columbia, MO.

My husband Pat and I have been volunteers with Love INC and have experienced first-hand the impact coaching and mentoring can have on individuals receptive to change.  It is so rewarding to see friends accomplish goals and gain confidence from their success. The clients we've worked with have inspired us with their courage and perseverance in the face of very difficult circumstances.

For me going Over the Edge is a way to contribute to and raise awareness of one of my favorite non-profits. It is also a challenge that I’m accepting to act outside of my comfort zone for the benefit of future Love INC friends and clients. 

A special thank you to Marcus of the Bouldering Garden for walking this first-timer and recovering control nut through the practice runs at Capen Park in August.  He is a marvelous teacher with a heart for helping folks expand their horizons.  I highly recommend him.

To all my friends:  God is calling us to great heights. Our best years are ahead of us. Please support me in this endeavor as we inspire each other to take hold of "abundant life".  John 10:10

BTW, my birthday is in early September and your support would be a great bday gift.  I'm just saying...
