I have been approached by several people who would like to support me but are reluctant to have me run for them. It seems they would rather have me rest for them. I am trying hard not to interpret this a disbelief in my abilities.
My mum‘s approach was an offer to buy me new running shoes when my current ones wear out (an offer I accepted). It occurred to me that some of the other people could take a similar approach and pay some of my other fixed expenses like race registration. I have decided against that.
This event is about raising money and awareness for the work being done by EWB in Malawi, not subsidizing my personal habits. I don’t expect to be able to stop my mummy as she has always made her own rules anyway. Everyone else who would like to support me and does not want me to run for them: I have created an alternate donation page for you.
In exchange for donations made here I commit to doing whatever I damn well please. Maybe I will walk one km per dollar. Or bike one km. Or eat one chimichanga. Or play one hour of road hockey. Or one hour of nintendo. Or swim naked in the ocean. I invite you to make a demand as to what I should do in exchange for your pledge (use the comments section below). Once you have donated though I may ignore your demand in favour of something less demanding.
