The 2014 Terry Fox Run

terryfoxWhen raising money for The Ride to Conquer Cancer earlier this year, I'm sure I promised not to hit you up for donations to my Terry Fox Run this year. At the time, I was concerned with donation fatigue. It's tough to beg for money and then do it again a few months later.

Then I re-watched Steve Nash's documentary about Terry Fox, Into the Wind, and realized I owe it to Terry to promote my run, even if I drained the swamp earlier this year. I will be participating in the Terry Fox Run on September 14 and I am collecting pledges here.

Please give what you can, and if you haven't seen Into the Wind yet, I found it on YouTube. Here's part one:

I would like to and I did try, but it told me my area code was invalid. It said thank you for the donation, but it said the area code is invalid. I put the phone number in the right space I think. If it didn't work, can I give you my payment information by email, but I hope it worked.

I'm afraid your donation didn't go through.

Well, I don't know why it didn't work. I have no idea. Isn't there a number I can call and make a donation that way? I don't know why it wouldn't work. I have no idea, but there should be a number I could just call and phone in. there has to be a way to make it work.

Guess you don't want it that bad?

I didn't realize that question was for me because I didn't think there could be an org option.
