BENEFITING: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association
EVENT: Spartan Race 2014
EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2014
Hiiii… Did I grab your attention? Sorry not sorry but unfortunately California is suffering from a drought so I will not be partaking in any ice bucket challenge. HOWEVER what I will be doing instead is some old fashion fundraising. On September 13, 2014 I will be racing at the Spartan Race to complete the last level (Spartan Beast | 13.1 Miles & 25+ Obstacle courses) to complete the Spartan Trifecta Medal. As my last race of the series I want to make it purposeful, thus I want to align it with a cause. With the raising awareness of ALS and vibing off of the momentum of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, ALL proceeds will go to the ALS Association. Though I do not know anyone personally suffering from Lou Gehrig's Disease, I am grateful to be physically abled to do simple things such as walk, dance, and run this obstacle course.
If you aren't in a position to donate then I completely understand. But your support would be appreciated! As for a challenge, I have yet to come up with a challenge that is not A) Dumb B) Unsustainable C) Painfully humiliating but if you do have any recommendations. Please do let me know.
