Foundation Overview:The Geoff Tomlinson Foundation is a 501(c)3 donor-advised fund created under the Fidelity Charitable� Gift Fund. The Foundation is named for Geoffrey Andrew Charles Tomlinson and was initially funded with gifts from Geoff�s familyIn the 3 years before his death, Geoff created a diet and exercise program for himself that resulted in him losing over 80 pounds and developing a healthy lifestyle. It was an accomplishment that he was very proud of. He worked out at Dixon Recreation Center on the Oregon State University campus and focused on eating a nutritious diet. Running became his passion after taking a running class at OSU. He competed in numerous races in the 2 years before his death including the first and second Corvallis Half-Marathon, the Shamrock Run in Portland, and many 5K races for charity. He was always trying to be a better runner and get as fit as he could. Many of his friends and co-workers have been inspired by Geoff�s commitment to health and fitness and are embracing these ideals in their own lives. Join us in honoring Geoff as we partake in the Corvallis Half Marathon helping embracing Geoff's idea of healthy living through exercise and nutrition.
