  • Downtown Fresh Market in the morning! See you there! Don’t take all the good donuts…….

  • Okay this one is special to me. The University of Toledo’s Dance Marathon, ROCKETHON, is a 13 hour dance-a-thon benefitting our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Mercy St. Vincent. Every year we raise OVER $100,000 For The Kids, and this year is no different. With some community support and a lot of support from the University, the incredibly talent team of student volunteers have already put on a plethora of events for the miracle kids and miracle families alike, leading up to Saturdays event. If you feel so inclined to help out the amazing cause, head over to or check my twitter bio for a donate link (@danielrwoodcock…#shamelessplug)
