It’s not that I am against causes and stuff like that. I’m happy to give. But asking people for money really makes me uncomfortable. Every year I sign up for at least one (usually more) event that requires me to beg my friends and family in person or via social networks and blogs to give me money so I can hopefully make a difference.
I guess you can see where this is going.
Look. Here’s the deal. The folks who run Fight Gone Bad 6 have pledged to fund college scholarships for ALL of the children who lost their fathers in the recent helicopter crash in Afghanistan. That’s 30 scholarships. Plus, funds raised will also go to benefit CrossFit Kids (which my Luke is a part of!), Camp Patriot and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
That’s where the money is going. All are amazing causes.
I did this workout in 2009, took 2010 off to give birth, and now I’m back. I’m really looking forward to it.
I have to raise $150 in just a few weeks. (September 17, 2011.) If you read my blog, you know I’m serious about participating. I would love for you to donate to me, even just a few dollars. Every little bit helps.
I also commit to NOT begging. But I hope you will help lift some of the monetary burden off my shoulders.
So if you have the inclination, please head over to my fundraising page to donate.
Thank you for your consideration.
