Community Involvement

Homestretch awards EX2 Community Impact Award in 2024

EX2 Awarded Homestretch Community Impact Award

Homestretch recently awarded EX2 Adventures owner, Andy Bacon, with their Community Impact Award. This honor is given to an individual who has made significant contributions to improving the lives of others in our community. They foster a sense of belonging and inspire enthusiasm through their exemplary leadership within their organization or through the creation of an event or program with Homestretch as beneficiary. Homestretch aims to celebrate this individual for lending their voice, support, influence, and passion to make a big impact on our mission-driven work.

Since the partnership formed with EX2 in May of 2020, Homestretch has been the charity partner for over 35 EX2 Adventures in-person and virtual events and the beneficiary of over $185,000 in donations. Just this past January, the Backyard BRRR Virtual Challenge, now in its 4th year, raised over $46,000 for Homestretch and attracted over 1,300 participants from 43 states.

Why Race With EX2?

It can be hard to find time for yourself.  We’ve got to contend with endless traffic, constant work obligations, our kids after school activities…and don’t forget to work in that date night.  But, somehow, you find the time to run, to bike, to get out and stay active and it feels great and you want more.  So you race.  You may be a doctor, or a barista, or a rocket scientist turned stay-at-home mom, but on race day – you’re all just athletes pushing yourself harder than you could on your own.  You shed everything except your determination and you just go.  And it’s fun, and for the first time in a long time, everyone is cheering for YOU.

And when it’s over, you feel great – alive and reinvigorated, with new friends, and a sense of accomplishment that only comes from really challenging yourself.  This is the result, the feeling, the reason you race.  You need this for your body, mind, and soul.

This is an excellent experience and this is what EX2 Adventures offers you.
