Share Your Epiphany Winners: Part 2

Yesterday we announced the first three winners of the Share Your Epiphany contest. To help share their inspiring tales, here are the final two winning epiphanies in their entirety. Glen Weinzimer (Hollywood, Florida) donated $5,000 to The SMART Ride and Alissa Magrum (Austin, Texas), who donated $5,000 to Colin’s Hope.

CLIF Bar was born on a bike in 1990 during a 175-mile ride in Northern California on which Clif Bar & Company Founder and Co-CEO Gary Erickson had “the epiphany” that he could make a better tasting energy bar. Two years later the first CLIF Bars hit the market and the company was off and running. This past spring, we celebrated our 20th anniversary by asking people to submit their own epiphanies for the Share Your Epiphany contest. We selected five winners who each awarded $5,000 from us to the nonprofit of their choice in their name.

Tell Us About Your Epiphany

I was volunteering in Rhode Island at the Navy housing to temporarily house Katrina victims that had been flown up from Louisiana and Missouri. I took stock of what I could do to offer more in such times of need and realized that, if well-crafted, I could weave together my veterinary tech experience and Emergency Responder NAD first-aid certificates together with my horse and dog training skills to become a K-9 search and rescue professional. I’d brought one of my dogs over to serve as a therapy pup and calm the transplanted victims’ nerves.
