28 for 28 Challenge

As most of you know, I am running my first marathon on June 2 in San Diego.  

I am running the race through Team in Training, an organization that raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

To put the FUN into Fundraising, I am issuing an official challenge, which I am naming 

28 for 28 Challenge

On Friday, February 1st, I will be celebrating my 28th birthday.  In honor of this, I am issuing a challenge:

If 28 people donate at least $28 on my 28th birthday (2/1), I will let each of those 28 people name something that I have to do in response.  You can make me do (just about) anything.  

Think of the most embarrassing, humiliating, outrageous, scary, gross, etc. thing you can think of.
Think of the most practical, choreish, I-do-for-you-so-you-don't-have-to thing you can think of.
Think of the most friendly, inspirational, helpful thing you can think of.

Basically, ask yourself what would you pay money to see me do?

You donate.  You name it.  I do it.

I have no shame - I'll do anything... with very few exceptions.  And I will document it and post it here on my blog.  Have fun and get creative with it!

AND you still get all of the awesome incentives that I have offered on my fundraising site.

Here's the catch - 28 people have to donate at least $28.  If 27 do, nobody makes me do anything.  

I am throwing my dignity on a limb here, and I'm hoping you can help me reach my goal of running a marathon and help find a cure for cancer.  

Now it's your turn.  

Donate.  Pass along to your friends & family.  Pool your money together with friends and donate as a team.  Just donate!
