“Run For Rob” is a charitable organization developed to help my brother Rob and the group home he lives in for the mentally handicap – Hammond Strawberry Fields.
“Run For Rob” team conquered another Harriman Triathlon.
Another GREAT race! Perfect trails and killer obstacles. Every obstacle proved to me we can accomplish ALL which is thrown at us.
After spending more than 35 years in a state-run institution, Rob now lives in an amazing, safe, and loving group home. Rob is thriving emotionally and physically in his new surroundings and we want to do everything we can to make sure this home, Hammond Strawberry Fields, continues for years to come.
Hammond Strawberry Fields is a non-profit 501-C3 that runs mostly on donations from the community and limited state funds. The home is situated in a small town right outside of New Orleans. The philosophy is one of love, care, and respect for each resident. Hammond Strawberry Fields is staffed with highly qualified nurses, managers, and caregivers whose sole responsibility is the daily care, mentally and physically, of the residents.
To ensure this home continues to thrive, myself and a few of my close friends will be donating all of our races on behalf of Strawberry Fields. We hope you will join us in changing the lives of those who truly need our help.
Routine is of high importance to Rob and his roommates, and the staff at Hammond Strawberry Fields take great pride in making every day a perfect day for them all. Rob is able to have many activities throughout the week, from outings in the community, picnics in the park, to volunteering their time with local community organizations.
Rob’s care and the care of his housemates are of the utmost importance to us all. We are extremely grateful to the staff at Hammond Strawberry Fields for leaving us with little worries for Rob’s wellbeing. Having this peace of mind is priceless.
