Fundraising Challenge: Hopebuilders 5k

Bright and early on October 9, I’ll be walking in the Hopebuilders 5k here in Charlotte to help a local children’s hospital. Gotta help the chillun. I’m walking with an awesome team, The Kings and Queens of Pretty. No, that name wasn’t my idea.

…Okay, maybe it was.

See, what had happened wuz, everyone on the team makes pretty things: websites, games… websites… Anyway, the name works.

I did this one last year with some of the Skookum team, and it was a blast. This year, I’m going to mix it up a bit.


The Challenge

Over on the left of this-here blag (if you aren’t on a mobile device) is a progress bar. That’s my fund-raising progress. If I can meet my goal of $400, I’ll run the 5k. Like, best-I-can-do, guzzle-some-icky-Gatorade, sleep-the-rest-of-the-day-afterwards run it. I can’t promise a great time–I’ve never been a fast runner–but I can promise my best effort.

Actionable Items

So here’s my “participant page”. And here are The Kings and Queens of Pretty.

I’ll update the progress bar as any donations come in, and I’ll post as I hit major milestones.

In the meantime, I’ll keep training to run it.
