A while back I announced that my son and I would be running/eating our way through a local event that draws thousands of participants. It will be his second time participating in the Krispy Kreme Challenge, and my first time. There’s something about gorging on a dozen day old doughnuts in the middle of a five mile race that’s just a bit daunting to me, and probably the reason I haven’t signed up prior to this year.
This race is a charity event, with proceeds going to the North Carolina Children’s Hospital, so I figured I must finally give it a go. Hey, it’s all in the name of charity, right? So, why not? On February 6th, on what I hope will be a crisp cool morning (no snow/ice), we are running in the name of charity, and trying not to vomit during the second half of the race. 🙂
Since I found it extremely gratifying to raise money for the James Blake Foundation last year for the New York City Marathon, I figured why not try to raise some money for the kids in need of medical help here locally. So, without further ado, I created a fundraising page on crowdrise. This platform is so user friendly, all you do is click on the link below, and it will take you directly to our fundraising page. I am trying to raise $200 for the kids, so in essence, that’s 20 $10 donations, so it should be a cinch, right? So, help us get our fundraiser off the ground by donating today. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I really hope you will consider a donation to this worthy charity. Thank you!
