BENEFITING: THE WAYNE FOUNDATION
Hello everyone, Two years ago I ran a Spartan Race..... and I got destroyed. Felt miserable, was lagging behind my cousins and generally felt defeated even as I crossed the finish line. I decided I would not let that happen again. I would train my hardest and push myself to be the best I could before re-entering the Spartan Sprint in Boston 2016. However, I needed motivation.... I needed a cause that I could support. Enter The Wayne Foundation. Being a lifelong diehard lover of Bruce Wayne aka Batman I have loved listening to Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast which got into a lot of people that have been involved in the BatUniverse over the years. Hearing the story of Jamie Walton and how she persevered to get out sex trafficking and become an advocate against CSEC (Commercial Sex Exploitation of Children) was inspiring to me and when Kevin Smith became involved with The Wayne Foundation, to support her and her work, I knew I had found my cause. How can we sit by and let sex trafficking occur. I knew Batman would not, he would punch it in it's turkey neck!!
So here I am, asking for your support to try and raise 10k to give to The Wayne Foundation and support all the work they do. Any dollar amount would be appreciated but even just spreading this crowdrise fundraiser to your social media networks (especially to any friends/family/celebrities that love Batman) would be great!!! Lastly, as a tribute to both my favorite superhero and to The Wayne Foundation I fully plan on running the entire Spartan Race in a Batman Cosplay outfit.
Thank you for all your support and for reading this long-winded tale! GianCarlo "miniBruce" Zolfonoon
