THE STORY:

Hey friends. So I'm sure you're all aware of the disaster that has struck the Philippines. It's terrible to see what that country is going through. It's sometimes hard to relate to people who are really dying and suffering on the other side of the world, but as people, what are we if we don't care about our brothers and sisters.

We are really fortunate here in Canada for two reasons.
1) We have really not seen that type of disaster hit us yet.
2) We are so blessed financially that we have the means to help out a country in distress.

Sometimes that money isn't easy to part with, though. So here's what I'm proposing:

For the next month (until December 20th) I am going to run. And every kilometer I log, I am going to donate just 25 cents. It doesn't sound like much, and it isn't, but it's something. And if ten of you decide to join me in pledging a quarter, dime, nickel, or even a penny, it could make a huge difference in the lives of those who really need it. So please just post on the wall what you'd like to pledge and we'll work it out.

I'm excited to get started, but I'll let you know how you can participate if you'd like to. First off, you can pledge any amount, BUT THIS IS PER KILOMETER. My goal is to run 100km in the next month, but it's not going to be an easy goal to hit. Secondly, you can help by coming on runs with me! Motivation will be key in this, and I need your support. Thirdly, you can share this with your friends and family and you could even join in and have people pledge for you.

If you're interested in viewing my progress, I will be tracking ALL my runs through GPS and you can follow along with me there. They will be posted here:
