As a kid, I wanted nothing more than to be a superhero. On certain days I would pretend to be Aquaman or Flash, and other days I was Spiderman or the Hulk. Somehow, some way, I would miraculously acquire the desired super powers.
Today my standards have changed slightly, but I still aspire to be a superhero. I just define it differently.
Over the past year, I’ve been fortunate enough to picnic in Golden Gate Park, run along Lake Michigan and paddle the Bronx River. One attribute that each of these beautiful places share is that passionate, talented and inspiring people commit time, leadership and dollars to care for them.
