Hello friends and family,
As many of you know, this May 5th and 6th, twelve brave runners will take on nearly 200 miles of California roads, plodding our way from Calistoga to Santa Cruz. Admittedly, we're doing it to have a great time (and we will!), but we're also doing it to help raise money for the charity Organs 'R' Us, a non-profit organization supporting organ donation. Each team is required to raise a minimum of $600 and we'd love to have your help getting there.
Of course, it's pretty tough to actually witness your money saving lives, so I thought I'd do my best to give you all something a little more tangible in return for your generosity.
So...if we raise:
+$250 - I (Kipp) will shave my beard into either a handlebar mustache or a sweet Magnum P.I. Style 'stache. Vote when you donate by cleverly embedding your choice in your name. I will wear the mustache of your choosing (and provide pics!) from the day we hit $250 until the end of the race. After which, I will *gasp* shave off the rest of my beloved, older-than-most-of-my-friends'-children, and rapidly greying beard.
+$500 - I will run one of my daytime legs in either the best approximation of the Brett Wurst Brewers' Sausage Race costume (thank you Soko for the idea) or a cow costume or something equally awesome (for you)/embarrassing (for me).
+$750 - the grand prize. This one is going to be tough and, frankly, I don't think we can hit it which is why I'm willing to offer so much... So if we hit $750, I will... *drum roll* shave my hair into a huge, punk-worthy, Mohawk. I'll wear it for a full week of work and, of course, for the race. I'll even dye it Packers colors (despite my fondness for the Vikes) come Relay time.
So there you have it. Thanks to all (for making it this far down the page, at the very least!),
