THE STORY:

 

I volunteer for Play Rugby USA, an organization that focuses on teaching the rules and values of rugby to inner-city disadvataged youth in New York. We help kids get in shape and off the streets. I currently help coach, referee, and organize teams and tournaments in NYC-we work with over 10,000 kids in 140 schools. I'm running the New York Marathon this year with their team, and I'm really excited.

But here's where we need your help. Play Rugby USA is expanding every year, and with school budgets so tight we have to do our own fundraising. I plan to raise $2500 for Play Rugby USA because they're a great organization, I love volunteering for them, and I'd like them to still be around so I can keep working with them!

I have a couple incentives for you:

1) I have to raise $2500 and run 26 miles. If you donate $100, I will do whatever you want for that mile-I will do cartwheels the whole mile (I should probably learn how to do cartwheels first), I will sing your favorite song for that mile, I will take and post pictures of me holding a sign with your name/your company's name for that mile (a great opportunity to see if your company/employer makes matching donations!). $200 = 2 miles, etc.

2) My top 5 donors who are able to attend will be invited to the post-race social sponsored by Play Rugby USA. It will be hosted by a bunch of English rugby players. It will be fun.

3) If I meet my goal, I will do something crazy as voted on by all of you-I will run the race decked out in hot pink, I will get a full chest hair wax, I will shave my head (or shave your company's logo onto the back of my head, a la Dennis Rodman), etc.

4) I've already donated $200 of my own money because I think it's a great cause! And it's tax deductible.

Let me know what you think. Thanks!
