I'v been invited to "The Seattle 100" and I need to raise $500 USD to go to it, anyone wana help ?
Jayson Pridmore, Jake Zemkey, Greg White and the Speedvision Two Wheeled Tuesday camera crew,and possibly Matt Milladdin will be there. The event is to raise money for "Neph Cure" promoting the cure for Kidney disease. The event is called the "Seattle 100" each rider is to try to complete 100 lap's of the 2.something mile road coarse. It's going to cost me about $800-$900 just to do the event out of my pocket. I have to put up atleast $500 US before I'm able to get on the track. Would'nt it be great if we could raise the $500 here? and so when I hand them the cheque , and let them know it's from a small group from Canada that is together enough to make a contribution amongst themselves ? Any donation would work although it's supposed to be a dollar figure for each lap completed, it's kinda hard,because I have to give the money up front ?
So if you were to sponsor me 10 cents a lap, that comes to $10 if you complete the 100 laps........right but what if I don't complete the 100 laps you say ? Well I still have to give them $500 USD, and thats the bottom line.
I'm putting the $500 USD up front ,and hope to raise the fund's to cover it here, and if I can't raise it here ,I will raise it elsewhere , I just thought it would be cool to have raised the fund's through a bike related site,with a bunch of wonderfull caring people. Now please don't ask me how I'm going to keep track of this (any input is welcome'd) also please do not turn this thread into a bunch of ramble, this is a serious thing and I am commited 100%.
Adam o/o any suggestions as to how to raise $ and keep it in BCSB's name?
Thanks to all ,and I will have pictures and video of the event for all to view.
