The Story


Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is dedicated to rescuing children all over the world from the horrible crime of sex trafficking. Join my mission to raise money for O.U.R. and save children's lives by supporting me in the Twin Cities Marathon!

About Me:

My name is Terry Szymanski, I am a LIFE Leadership member, an engineer and inventor of the world famous gummy loaf.  

The Cause:

While at a LIFE Leadership Convention in Des Moines, Iowa, I listened to a talk given by Tim Ballard, the CEO of Operation Underground Railroad.  Tim Ballard and his team go undercover to these black markets where innocent children are sold as slaves for sex.

LIFE's charity organization All Grace Outreach is sponsoring a push up contest to raise money for the cause.  Instead of push ups, I will be racing in the Twin Cities Marathon this year (October 1st), not because I like running, but because I really don't like push ups.  However, I will be doing one push up in the contest to represent the marathon.  1 push up = 1 marathon = 26.2 miles!

100% money raised will go to O.U.R.
