Organized by: Karen Baker

EVENT DATE Apr 10, 2016

THE STORY:

6 years ago I was a budding tri-athlete with a healthy prosperous future as a world traveling adventurer (this is not true but sounds good).

Then Magento happened, I got coding and my lifestyle became one of 3am coding sessions, 144 steps per day and drinking heavily whenever there was a conference. Which was often. So, in an attempt to turn back the clock of age, to ensure I can live on to fight another day, I'm taking on the Magento Imagine Run on April 10th 2016, to be held in the vicinity of the Hoover Dam, Nevada (it will be hot!).  

Yep this year! Right now if I ran it I'd prob have a heart attack but what can I do by April?

My friend Matt Hunt is CEO of this great charity Free the Bears in Cambodia and after he allowed me to bend his ear on how he has 50k page likes on Facebook when he knows zero about social media I feel I should step up. Seriously it's a wonderful cause, this is not your standard charity, it's one that's making a real difference to the planet.

So....if I get $2000 in donations I'll do the 10k run. Only if. Otherwise I'm in for 5k. Bear in mind I can currently run for about 45 seconds, this is a big challenge.

ShipperHQ will match all donations, so whatever total we get it will be doubled. If you want to join me on this fundraiser let me know via twitter.

Do you want to see me run Imagine is the question?
