I saw this on the news this morning and OMG talk about out of the ordinary. Everyone has heard about walk-a-thons and races to raise money for different charities. But I bet you’ve never heard of something quite like this. The Short Fat Guy’s Road Run is an annual tradition in which some of Syracuse’s, um, STOCKIER men raise money and walk a total of a city block–while eating snacks–in an effort to raise money for Make a Wish (which just happens to be an organization I wholeheartedly support). So. They’ve apparently been doing this ‘run’ for over twenty-five years and have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the organization. For that reason, they deserve props.
Want to know how much money they raised this year? Over $200,000 for Make-a-Wish recipients in this area. Impressive.
Kudos to all of the participants in the, um, ‘run’.
