OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE WITH THE FOUNDATION
A native of France, but a proud American citizen since 2000, he has long been guided by the notion that one should think globally, but act locally.
He shares, “When you act in ways that serve your community, it will impact the larger world.”
Hervé has also put his philosophy and love of running towards raising funds for EDSO K9 Association, local fire fighters, and Military Family Support Group, a local non-profit of which he is Chairman of the Board.
