For a Cause
Rodney Smith Jr. is an All Fifty stater powerhouse. Not only has he visited all fifty states, NINE times but he does it promoting various charitable causes. We are cheering him on as he does his TENTH All 50 state tour – for Autism Awareness or Childhood Cancer Research. Completing 10 trips to all 50 would make him the All Fifty Club record holder for most visits to all 50 and the only person who has mowed lawns for free across the country many times over for disabled, veterans, law enforcement. He doesn't stop there - he motivates and encourages young people and adults to give back to their community through the 50-yard challenge. May the movement continue! www.weareraisingmen.com
Congratulations to 84-year-old Al Whitney from Ohio! He has donated platelets in all 50 states TWICE! His mission was to travel to blood banks to donate platelets, speak at functions, do radio and TV interviews, dispense ideas, encourage staff & remind them of the importance of their work. Final state on 2nd tour - New Mexico, March 2021 #allfiftyforacause
Gary Flanagan (aka Thor Xplores) has visited all fifty 4 times. During his second tour to all 50, he and his son Peter raised funds for the victims and families impacted by The Station Nightclub fire that occurred in 2003 in Rhode Island, United States, killing 100 people including Great White guitarist Ty Longley and injured 230 people. (Please let us learn from history and take room capacity and clear exits seriously.) During his third tour he raised funds for Catholic Charities, The Sgt. Dennis J Flanagan Foundation, The Women's Care Center of Sevier County, Hoops for Heroes, and Ronald McDonald House Charities. For his fourth tour. he raised funds for the Sgt. Dennis J Flanagan Foundation and the Peter Frampton Myositis Research Fund.
