The 10th Annual Tocco Sports Challenge at Hillsdale College will commence on October 7th at 2 PM beginning in the Sport Complex with a presentation by Don to the student body about the importance of maintaining physical wellness and commitment to personal excellence in all endeavors. Once again, Don will compete against the best athletes on campus in baseball, football, basketball and chess. If the student athletes outscore Don in hitting the 80 MPH fastball, throwing the football to receivers and shooting free throws and threes, he will donate $25,000 to over a dozen different organizations on campus. If on the other hand he wins, that amount drops to $15,000. He is currently 6 wins, 3 losses.
Don visited the Canyon Ranch Resort in Tucson, AZ as a contributor to their ongoing educational outreach, joining other nationally recognized lecturers. His prose and poems were well received by Ranch guests from as far away as London, England, New York City and Atlanta, Georgia. The Powerpoint presentation showing sculptures, paintings and photographs from Art of the Journey brought numerous hazzaahs! Don has been invited to return for yet another presentation in October!
