Get Muddy For A Cause

The Next Generation OCR Team is proud to announce the 1st Annual Get Muddy For A Cause.  The team compiled of both great clients and friends will be completing the 2017 Pittsburgh Tough Mudder on September 10, 2017.  We are so proud to complete the course to benefit the Semper Fi Fund (https://semperfifund.org/).

The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities. Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, they’ve issued 137,000 grants, totaling more than $150 million in assistance to over 18,500 of our heroes and their families.

Please go to our Team Site to make a small donation.  Every little bit truly helps!

The Next Generation…They’re Green?

To be clear, I am in no way suggesting you grab your family each morning for a group hug around the large tree in the front yard.  Nor am I suggesting you begin capturing rain water in large pails to bathe.  BUT, I am suggesting we all listen a little more clearly to what our children’s generation is shouting out. While on the phone recently, my 20-year-old son Casey, made me consider how valuable and important simply sustainability could be.  Guess what, it could not be more simple – living green and sustainable means creating a lifestyle that works with yourself and nature, instead of against it, and does “zero” long-term or irreversible damage to any part of the environment.  Living “large & in charge” in old news.  Living “smart & simple” is well, SMART!

 As a parent that has attempted to teach his children the X’s & O’s of life, it is so gratifying to know that I can learn a few things from them. I could not be more proud that my son is majoring in Sustainable Design & Architecture at the University of Texas.  If he one day chooses to live in a sustainable designed tiny house with his family, I will be blessed to have taken a small part in raising such a good and caring human being.
