Maury and I just got back from Seoul, where we had the chance to not only relax (lovely hookah), but also to pursue some new, "out-of-town" sponsors for our Gapcheon 10k Race on Dec. 4. The results we're positive, and soon, I hope to be able to add two new businesses to our cause.
Speaking of awesome, our friend Joe Riley had a great idea to add an additional wackiness to the race and after-party (besides his insistence on wearing a dress) - starting on Nov. 1, Riley's going to start growing a mustache as part of Movember.
Movember, for those unaware, is a charitable movement designed to raise money for Men's Health through the power of the mustache! It's a month-long campaign to grow the most bizarre, beautiful 'stache that you can, gathering sponsors and money along the way. We'll host a competition of sorts at our Yellow Taxi afterparty and give a small prize away. Then, we'll have the great Shave-Off ... effectively reducing those manly lumberjack-man to mere shadows of their former alpha-selves.
Contact Joe personally (http://www.facebook.com/joeyriles) if you're interested in joining up with him or finding out what style of mustache is best for you. All donations will go directly to the Korean Multiple Sclerosis Society, with whom we're having dinner sometime this week or next (whenever they can afford to take the train down from Seoul).
Great days ahead, folks! Currently, we have 55 participants set to either run or volunteer for our race! And the numbers grow every week. Thanks for the continued support.
