In preparation for the two marathons I am running this fall, I have decided to combine two of my favorite physical pursuits--drinking beer and running--to raise money for @teamfoxmjff, the grassroots fundraising arm of the @michaeljfoxorg. I will be doing this in the form of a BEER MILE--a race of four laps around a 400m track, accompanied by the drinking of four beers, in a true test of the fitness of one's body, spirit, and chugging ability.
Now, I can't do this alone, so I'm making this a challenge to my network to show your support. My goal is to raise $5,000 by November 4, the date of the @nycmarathon. If, with the help of all of you, I succeed in this goal, I will run said beer mile. That's right, no $5k, no beer mile. If you want to see me suffer, then show your support by donating, sharing this post with your networks, and, if you dare, joining me for the beer mile (I'm serious, if you want to join, LMK)! But wait, there's more. There are a number of items you can purchase with your donation (hurry before these sell out):
With a donation of $150, you can choose one of my beers (there are four of these available).
With a donation of $200, you can choose my outfit on the day of the run.
Every donation of at least $40 guarantees you entry to the Second Annual NYC Fox Hunt taking place in Central Park on October 21 (see Facebook event for more info). As many of you know, I have had the pleasure of working at MJFF since 2015, and I can personally attest that all dollars we raise are put to work by an extremely hard-working organization that is obsessed with urgency, efficiency, and accountability.
See link in bio to donate. Thank you all for the support! #makenickchug #makenickrun
