For a Cause

A 50 state journey is a great way to increase awareness, raise funds, share ideas, and broaden exposure for a cause. Congratulations to these travelers and their unique 50 state tours.

 

 

 

 

 

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
