How many of you have participated in an organized sporting event to raise money for your favorite cause? Perhaps a walk or a run? Maybe even a cycling or kayaking event? Not only do you get exercise, you gain friends and raise money for something that matters to you.
Often you can support many of these types of activities with very little preparation. Sure, a full marathon requires an advance training regimen, but the majority of the "support a cause" events can be done with very little forethought...just sign up, show up, and have fun!!
Then there's Herculean Efforts and Passion
You know what I mean: those endeavors where you have to plan the entire event and train, train and train until you can train no more... and then go back and accomplish the entire set of obstacles you have set for yourself... perhaps in the worst of weather? Yes there are a few crazies who do these things.
Neil Luckhurst is no stranger to fundraising, and no stranger to punishing his body through a set of physical and mental obstacles that energize others to pledge money to support his favorite causes. In this case, the ADK High Peaks Foundation is the lucky recipient of his passion.
This Year it's Project 100
Neil's "Project 100" will be taking place this winter and will surely raise some hard earned funds for the foundation. I'm not going to give away Neil's secrets here, just spreading the word so more of us adventure seekers can be in the know. You can find out all the details on Neil's Project 100 blog for the event. He's put just as much effort into his blog as he has to training (well maybe not, if you've seen him train)!
In case you want the the whole link revealed, here it is:
It's sure to be a spectacular fundraiser. Neil's got a fire and passion to make this happen. There are many ways to help.... and once again make friends along the way. Don't miss out. Project 100 is coming to the ADK's this winter season!
