BENEFITING: The University of Kansas Cancer Center
EVENT: 4TH ANNUAL TOUR DE BBQ
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
Hey friends, I am participating in the 2012 Kansas City Tour de BBQ in October. Over the course of 62 miles, I will Pedal for Pork and document my adventures so everyone who could not make it will be able to see how many napkins are needed to devour tasty smoked meats. As I Pedal for Pork, I am reaching out and asking for money.
If 25 friends donate $3, I can reach my $75 goal. I do hope that 1. I have 25 peeps whom I can call friends, and 2. you are not that cheap, 3. you are not that lazy to go donate, and 4. in the event that everyone bails, I will foot the remaining difference. The money is going to the The University of Kansas Cancer Center and Children’s Mercy Hospital’s oncology program. I do not see any of the money. All I have done is registered for this event, spent a ridiculous amount of cash on a flight, I am paying all of my expenses, all so that I can eat pork, get sweaty, and ride my bike.
In case everyone forgets to help donate, I will prod lightly one week before the event to remind everyone to help out. If everyone is lazy and forgets, I foot the bill. The money will be raised, and thats how its going to get done.
For every donation received, I will make sure to think about all my friends out there that made it possible for me to put on the pounds while I Pedal for Pork. So what do you say? Together we can do this!
And if you think thats me in the pic, then you have not seen me in too long. It also means that I do have the sweeeetest scooter in town.
*** I just found out the minimum is a $10 donation. As this is my first time fundraising, I seem to be doing it all wrong. So no arm twisting here from me, if $10 is too much, no pressure. If you do want to spend $10 on cancer research, then I will dirty a napkin for you, my friend.
