One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.
My name is Ross Kinney and the beautiful girl sitting next to me is Kelly(see my About me link on my sidebar for more info.), runner, cyclist, writer, blood cancer freedom fighter. My home town is Denver, Colorado, and I still live in Colorado with my wife of 27 years who is also my best friend, my wonderful children, three dogs and a very unhappy cat.
I started this blog almost three years ago in honor of a very special person in my life, Kelly Grubb. Kelly passed away after an almost twelve year battle with Acute Lymphocatic Leukemia in March 2008. I began running marathons for Kelly in 1999 as a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training program when she was ten years old.
I continue to run to honor Kelly's life and what she stood for, what she fought for. She is my hero and my inspiration for much of my writing and my daily living.
I will be offering three door prizes this year. The drawings for all three are open to anyone in the world with a blog who is participating in the One World One Heart project. Just leave me a comment on this post that includes your email or blog address so that I can get in touch with the 3 winners. I will do the drawing for the prizes with a random number generator at 10:00 pm Mountain time on the last day of the OWOH project, February 17th, 2011.
This is what I am giving away this year :
Guide to living an unconventional life
Technical performance running shirt
Rock My World Hand painted rocks
Wishing everyone a safe journey during your One World One Heart blog trip and I look forward to visiting many new places on this adventure.
