Coming up before you know it I’m going to be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with Endure To Cure founder Jason Sissel. Before we tackle the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, though, that crazy man is going to compete in Ultraman Canada. He’s one of only 30 athletes worldwide who have been invited to participate in this feat of endurance. Over 3 days he’ll be swimming 6.2 miles, cycling 260 miles, and running 52 miles, (I did mention he was crazy, right?) and you can go with him.
Not literally, of course, because that would mean you also want to run, bike & swim a farther distance than it is from Chicago to St. Louis. That doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun to me, and it doesn’t to Jason either, but he’s doing it to raise money for pediatric cancer research, treatment, and patient care.
You can figuratively go the distance for this amazing cause by donating any amount – let me repeat that – any amount by midnight tonight. As thanks he’ll emblazon your name on the jersey he’ll be wearing during the race. Plus the top 10 donors will be mentioned in a book he’s writing about his Ultraman experience. Donate $100 or more and you’ll receive a t-shirt.
If you want to help out pediatric cancer research AND get your name on that shirt, donate now – clock’s ticking!
