Gregg Dodd wants to be a dream maker. When he jotted down his New Year’s resolution list on the first day of the year, he scrawled on his kitchen chalkboard 52 experiences he’s never had (an average of one per week). His now notorious #greggslist was designed to make 2014 the most memorable year of his life. Quorum profiled Gregg and his list with our May cover story, and with just three months until 2015 we wanted to see how he is coming along.
Gregg’s list has been an inspiration to many, and right now his focus is on #17: “Make someone’s wish come true.” Gregg admits he doesn’t know exactly what this looks like, but says, “I’ll know it when I see it.” We wish him luck in being a dream maker and inspiring all of us to create our own lists that change lives and “make wishes come true.” Dream big, Columbus!
Total budget of $5,200.00
Spent to date $3,042.35
Highlights since we last saw Gregg. . .
27. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge: “It’s not until you walk across the most famous bridge in the world that you realize the ingenuity of humanity. The engineering feat was felt with each step and every breath as I looked out over the amazing San Francisco sky line.”
43. Run the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art: “Isn’t it every child’s dream to be like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky? Running up the intimidating stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art was an exhilarating feat that symbolized victory and triumph.”
