Personal Activities

Erich is an avid runner, though not very fast. He has completed six Portland marathons and been on seven Hood-to-Coast relay teams. He and his family actively support and participate in the oversight of Menucha, an ecumenical retreat center in the Columbia Gorge serving only not-for-profit groups, such as arts, education, 12-step recovery, and cancer care groups.
