Costumed theme 5K races are becoming far more commonplace. Which outfit would you rather wear to a wedding?
I’ll be huffing and puffing 5 kilometers in disguise over the next month, channeling the spirit of a bridesmaid and Robin the Boy Wonder in two separate charity races.
Would be honored if you’d consider pledging a donation of any size to the Runaway Bridesmaids team (fighting human trafficking) at New York’s 5th Avenue Mile Race this weekend — or to the Garnick Justice League, which is again battling for Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD) at their Superhero 5K.
The homemade Robin costume is as advertised. The dresses above, however, bear no resemblance to the one which will be draped on my frame this Saturday.
That’s a fashion secret about to be revealed in a Men’s Fitness magazine exclusive.
Really. Stay tuned….
UPDATE: Here’s the reveal.
The Garnick Justice League is comprised of Supergirl, Spider-Man, Golden Age Flash and Boggle Woman.
Many thanks to our family, friends, co-workers and archenemies who made a donation to support the Superhero Fun Run and 5K Walk for Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene wiped out hopes for breaking the Guinness World Record for Most Superheroes Gathered in One Place. But of course, the cause remains the focus.
Good News: You can still donate to CHaD under the Garnick Justice League banner until Sept. 9.
CHaD never turns down families because of income or lack of insurance. Here’s where the money goes.
Yes, comic book geeks, we do know that Marvel superheroes were not part of the Justice League!
This Saturday, if Hurricane Irene doesn’t turn New Hampshire into a pile of toothpicks, there will be a Guinness Book of World Records attempt for “Most Superheroes in One Place.”
I’m a sucker for Guinness Records, having recently been lured to participate in the World Dental Flossing Record event at the Lowell Spinners baseball game.
My son Ari (aka Golden Age Flash) and I (aka Spider-Man) will be huffing and puffing in the CHaD Hero Fun Run to benefit Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth. The Garnick Justice League team would appreciate your support.
Even if we are picking up pine tree limbs off our street this weekend instead of running around with hundreds of Batmans and Wonder Women, your donations still will make a huge difference in kids’ lives.
