100 Miles of Nowhere: Fighting Cancer With Water Balloons Division

201005110852.jpg I am so proud of my husband! He joined Fatty’s team and did the 100 Miles of Nowhere ride!

We raised $180 in cash donations, plus what was donated online, which last I heard was up around $175. The generosity of friends, family, and coworkers amazes me. Thank you to everyone who gave generously!

Unfortunately he was only able to complete 56 miles of the ride due to technical difficulties, but I am proud of him nonetheless. I was able to be there and support him, which was fun, but now I’m as red as a cooked lobster from sunburn.  

I loved Tommy’s water balloon idea where for a donation, his coworkers could throw a water balloon at him as he rode by.


That was how we were able to raise so much in cash donations, and it was so much fun for everyone.

    Now that’s a cool idea (in both senses)–the rider gets water cooling, the balloon-tossers have some fun, and cancer research gets supported.

    Thanks, I think that was definitely one of my better ideas. The real heroes of the day were my wife who kept supporting me and feeding me and my coworkers who donated money–I never thought I would raise so much in so short a time! Definitely makes me want to try something bigger next year.

    A new variation of the old carnival dunk tank! Great idea!
