*Please see the second blurb for my specifics. For now - here's the fluffy stuff!*
I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.
Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
Here’s how we’re gonna spice this up. I’ve been getting back into shape, and I don’t exactly keep my fitness activities secret. I’m a martial artist, having achieved a Blue Belt in Krav Maga and an Orange Belt in Isshin-ryu Karate. I also enjoy lifting weights per my old routines in the Navy (I’ve been making due with resistance bands during the quarantine.) When there’s local films about, I do stunts and action sequences, and typically play the bad guy who knows how to punch people. So, let’s run me ragged in the name of research! For every donation, I’ll perform your selected fitness activities. Here’s a menu of different pains you can inflict on me:
Pains for Financial Gains
One (1) Standard Pushup - $1
One (1) Wide Pushup - $2
One (1) Diamond Pushup - $2
One (1) Crunch - $1
One (1) Squat - $1
One (1) Jumping Jack - $1
One (1) Punch - $1
One (1) Straight Kick - $1
One (1) Round Kick - $2
One (1) Side Kick - $2
Run-in-place (20 seconds) - $1
One (1) Burpee - $5
If you end up with 50 cents left over, you can round up to $1 for one more request. Once you've donated, I'll respond with an email so you can tell me what to do! Once I get enough requests for a solid routine, I will post a video of myself doing the routine on this page, as well as all over social media for fun. The more you give me, the more I wheeze, and the more we all laugh!
