THE STORY:


Yooo,

It's Kyle. I'm creating a team for ClimbAmerica on Sunday January 26th and I want your ass on it. Our team name is the "King Koalas" and we will have t-shirts made with a cute/badass/giant koala bear climbing the Prudential on it like King Kong. On that day, we will meet at 53 State Street in Boston at 9AM and climb the steps of Boston's tallest buildings with hundreds of others to raise money and awareness for Brigham and Women's Hospital and the fight against heart disease. Feel free to bring a +one.

I'm doing this for basically two reasons.

First, because my good friends Eliza and Aymbre work for Climb Corps, the awesome organization putting on this event, and I want to support my friends in any way I can, especially if it involves exercise and having FUN (I always write FUN in capital letters, cuz I have more FUN doing it.)

The second reason I'm doing this is because my mom, Sammie Lunt, whom you may know, suffered a heart attack about one year ago in December, 2012 at the young age of 53. I was literally minutes away from losing one of the greatest, most loving people I'll ever know and the individual responsible for--hold on, brain fart--oh ya, putting me on this earth and playing by far the biggest role in making me who I am. Not just who I am, but who Eric and Nicki are too! She's the kind of person who will hug you the minute she meets you no matter who you are, will laugh her ass off with you, and will treat you like her own. She's the kind of person you love to see again and again, but will only need to meet once to never forget. She's the kind of person whom without, my Dad would be a lost soul wandering the earth with no clean underwear or food to eat. Well, her artery had a 100% block. Luckily emergency personnel and doctors were able to save her life--although it would never be the same. I wish it didn't take a near-death experience, but after 40 straight years of it, she quit smoking cold-turkey (after many failed attempts through the years) and completely overhauled her diet for the sake of her achy-breaky heart and the people that would prefer to see her around for a while longer. I'm proud of her for making the changes she needed to make and immeasurably thankful that she is still here--cuz I was not ready for that shit, I will tell you right now. NOT UP IN HERE.

So come climb with me. It's free. The only costs are whatever you want to donate (if you can) and probably a shit ton of calories. You can run or walk--whatever. Anyone who gets one of the team shirts I'll make, I'll donate any proceeds I make to our team's fundraising total. They'll look awesome, don't worry.

Hey, if we're really lucky, Mom might even climb with us. She's done Relay for Life before (also a breast cancer survivor aka one tough broad). Don't worry Mom, it's basically the same, only up and probably harder (but definitely not all night long!).

Please email/facebook me if you need help with anything, and with your t-shirt size if you want one.

Thanks and thumbs up for rockin' roll,

-Kyle

P.S. - You can still simply donate and/or get a shirt if you want to just support my team and/or have climacophobia (fear of climbing/falling down stairs). I'll post pics of what it will look like soon. Holla at ya boiii.
