Sunday Props–Short Fat Guy’s Road Run

Standard

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’.

About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.
