How a Nut Raises Money
Today I got an email that suggested my old Facebook was not entirely useless. I was dubious, but further examination only supported this possibility; indeed, I had been invited, via Facebook, to do something constructive.
The invitation came from Pat, an old cross country buddy who ran with me in high school. Well, that doesn’t quite describe our relationship. He ran his ass off all around our home town, and I desperately tried to keep up. He beat the crap out of me day after day, and showed me just how intense running can be. He’s a nut- the kind of nut that champion runners are made of.
This being the case, Pat has decided to raise money for Back on My Feet by participating in their 20in24 Relay. But not just that- Pat will attempt to run 100 miles over the course of the event. He’s trying to raise $600 by the 18th, so he’s looking for sponsors.
Thus we get back to my contrived introduction: He’s been inviting people (via facebook) to sponser this act of nuttiness. I thought that I would try and help spread the word. BOMF has such an amazing philosophy on helping people (check their site out if you haven’t heard of them), and this would be a good opportunity to show them some support. And of course there’s Pat, who deserves to succeed with such a noble goal.Share on Facebook
