This may prove to be my favorite blog post yet—not necessarily because I’ll be giving you a great workout (although I might), but because of the content of this particular post, and what we have a chance to do.
You see, I was raised to believe that your measure will be taken not by what you have, but by what you do, and in this blog I want to share an opportunity with you to do something truly, truly great.
I want to ask you for a favor. But before I do that, I want to let you know how much I appreciate being able to ask. I value my readers, all of you, SO much. I cannot thank you enough for letting me into your lives, for visiting this blog, and for allowing me to share with you the information that I do.
For those who haven’t heard of it, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed whole-heartedly to funding the MOST promising research to find cures for childhood cancers. Their goal is not only to aid in the research that will eventually cure such diseases, but also to aid in helping survivors live long and healthy lives.
Each year, over 160,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with Cancer—and Caner is the number one killer of kids in the US and Canada. Truly, this is grim stuff.
That said, St. Baldrick’s Day itself it not some maudlin event filled with an overwhelming sense of sadness; rather it is a FUN, exciting, energy filled event, with locations around the country brimming with people who can’t wait to do their part to aid in what way they can.
And I hope you feel that same energy, and want to help by donating just a few dollars to help me meet this ambitious goal.
Truth be told, $10,000 sounds like a lot of money, but I KNOW that we can do this. We can place a very large drop in this bucket, and help the thousands of other people around the world battling against the scourge of Cancer.
Now, I would love to send you as many workout from as many fitness pros as I can—so while you’re doing your part by donating, I will be doing my part to aggressively pursue all of my fitness buddies to make sure they hook you up.
Please, if you can help, ANYTHING helps.
By helping to the tune of just $15 (less than the cost of dinner in just about any restaurant you’d consider eating at), you will be getting a SICK bunch of workouts by some of the best fitness professionals in the world.
This is just my small way of helping how I can. Thank you for reading, and thank you for donating.
