July 16. Day 197. That's how we roll
No longer is it about convincing people of the worthiness of your cause. Increasingly it is about coming up with a novelty idea that will make your personal endeavour stand out from the crowd.
So I hand it to these guys who I ran into at South Bank this evening. I applaud the fact that they are going to compete in the Redcliffe Jetty 2 Jetty half marathon on the weekend. But as if 21.1 kilometres isn't enough, there has to be more if you want to convince people to sponsor their effort and donate to Camp Quality. So why run it? Why complete it on roller skates when you can run towing a mate on roller skates for the entire distance?
Their aim is to raise $5000 for the children's cancer charity and they are more than four fifths of the way there.
Full marks and $20 for your efforts guys.
