I have signed up for the annual 3 mile Beaver Stadium Run, which courses through State College and ends at the 50 yard line of Beaver Stadium. Proceeds from the race benefit Special Olympics of Pennsylvania, and the run is sponsored by the Paterno family.
This race combines three of my loves: 1) running, 2) the Paterno family, and 3) Beaver Stadium. The fact that it benefits Special Olympians is just icing on the cake.
But I need your help.
I’m okay with the running part. Three miles is nothing to me. I don’t even need you to bring me water. Or bananas. (Beer and donuts would be great, but I don’t NEED that!) I don’t need you to stand on the sideline and cheer me on, but you are welcome if you so desire.
No–what I need is your financial support. I have set a goal to raise $1000.00 for Special Olympics. As of writing this blog, I have raised $260.00.
If you can afford it, and think the Special Olympics is a great cause, then donate in my name at my home page.
I thank you for your support!
