Leo Carrillo, Housing Specialist for Clearinghouse CDFI’s nonprofit partner Affordable Housing Clearinghouse, is definitely a “Tough Mudder” with a big heart!
Leo recently participated in (and smashed) the Temecula Tough Mudder – a punishing 12 mile obstacle course which promotes friendship over finishing rank or completion time. The Tough Mudder event benefited The Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit benefiting veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. Check out some photos of Leo in action:
Leo also somehow found the time to volunteer for LA on Cloud 9 at MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, helping serve meals to the homeless.
Each month, LA on Cloud 9 holds community picnics where guests are fed and given a change of clothes and food for their pets. Food, pet food and clothes are donated, & leftovers are distributed throughout the month by the street team soldiers as care packages for homeless individuals.
We love this! Here are some pics from Leo’s volunteer day:
What can we say, but wow! Congratulations, Leo, on your Tough Mudder title and thank you! We’re seriously impressed by this accomplishment, and we love your personal commitment to such great causes!
