Bop to the Top

.

On Saturday I climbed 37 stories of the One America building with a Flip Camera in my left hand to capture all the coughing and hyperventilating. You can view my video blog about the race above. If you have dial-up or can’t discreetly watch videos at work, I will spoil the ending for you: I got to the top without keeling over. We were also one of the top 4 fundraisers for the event, an honor for which I won a mug. Instead of dividing it into 50 little pieces and mailing it to all my sponsors, I will let you have a sip from it if we ever run into each other.

You can view pictures of the event taken by The Indianapolis Star here. I’m not sure what my official time was because, quite frankly, the official race site sucks giant donkey balls.

The race is also a fundraiser for the Riley Children’s Hospital, Indiana’s first and only pediatric facility. My blog gets a lot of visitors, and it occurred to me that if every one of you just gave $1 we could raise over a thousand dollars for sick kids. If you want to sponsor me, visit my fundraising page.
