If you run in Monterey County you've no doubt heard of Mike Dove. Not only does he co-author a running column in the Monterey County Herald, he also helped establish the Just Run program, which encourages school children to exercise.
Some good news came our way today about Mike, he has made it to the finalist round of AARP Create The Good’s “Win & Do Good” national volunteer story competition. He is one of seven finalists, and has already won $5,000 for his preferred charity, the Big Sur International Marathon JUST RUN program. Online voting is underway to select the grand prize winner, who will be awarded an additional $10,000 for their charity of choice.
Dove’s volunteer story was one of more than 1,800 entries from across the nation in the Win & Do Good contest. The public is now voting online to select a grand prize winner from among seven finalists.
Voting in the Win & Do Good contest is open to the public. Finalist entries can be viewed at http://www.createthegood.org/sweepstakes. Voting is open until November 18, and individuals may vote as often as once a day.
So remember, vote early and vote often.
