30 Before 30 is a list of 30 new things that I'm trying to accomplish before my 30 birthday.
One might say, if one were so inclined, that it is on like Donkey Kong.
No backing out now unless I want to forfeit my $65 and hahahaaaaaa... I think we all know I'm too cheap for that.
I will be running Ye Olde Warrior Dash. I am not a praying person, but if you are and are feeling charitable, a brief request on my behalf that I might not kill or seriously injure myself would probably not go astray.
Now here's the really important part!
I've signed up to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as "St. Jude's Warriors".
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
So I am asking you, dear readers, if you would consider contributing to my fundraising. Even a fiver would be a tremendous help. My fundraising page is right here.
By choosing to contribute, you would not only be helping St. Jude Children's Hospital, but you'd be helping me out on race day. Every Warrior who raises at least $250 will gain access to the St. Jude Warrior Battle Tent and everything they need on race day, including free food, drinks and showers. That's going to come in mighty handy after I've slogged through 3.38 miles of mud pits, barbed wire and fire. If I'm not dead, obviously.
Have you ever raised money for charity doing something like this? It's my first time and I'm so excited!
