EVENT: Tough Mudder 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Asking for a little help. On Sept 17, I am running in the Michigan Tough Mudder on behalf of the Hope Water Project (HWP). HWP provides the most basic necessity of life (clean water) to impoverished people in Kenya by drilling deep water wells. HWP is a great cause where even the smallest amount of money makes a big difference. And that’s where you come in….I am asking for your sponsorship of my Tough Mudder run.
Why would you do this? Two good reasons:
1) The virtuous reason: your donation will help change the lives of an entire community. Once a well has been drilled, it provides clean water to a community for decades! Clean water restores health and life to these communities, allows children to focus on education, etc.
2) The not-so-virtuous reason: The Tough Mudder is a pretty brutal race. During this race, I will be battered/bruised, thrown off the top of a tower, electrocuted, repeatedly dunked in nasty mud water, and will have to swim in a pool of ice water. I can think of more than a few of you that may have wanted to inflict some punishment upon me at one point or another in our relationship. Your donation ensures that all this punishment is doled out to me at once on September 17.
I am totally cool with either reason...just donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/…/teamkensingtontm20…/paulmartino2
