The Cloudcast - Eps.74.5 - 2013 Krispy Kreme Challenge

5 Miles. 12 Donuts. 2400 Calories. 1 Hour. $4310 raised for NC Children's Hospital.

This year Aaron and Brian were joined by Amy Lewis (@CommsNinja) on their annual quest to combine exercise, gluttony and stupidity. We tried to take it up a level from last year, so we asked our listeners to help us raise money for the charity (NC Children's Hospital) and they stepped up big time! THANK YOU all for making a huge impact to children in need.


It seemed like this year was a little more serious than last year, but we'll let you make the decision.

We're proud to say that not only did we all finish the race, but we more than doubled our fundraising goal. We'll now take a few days to recover and then we'll start planning for the 2014 race. We have a new interesting tricks up our sleeves to keep it interesting...

The Cloudcast - Eps.64 1/2 - "The Cloudcast Gives Back - Charity Challenge"

This year we're taking our ability to give back and have fun at the Krispy Kreme Challenge to a new level. We're asking our listeners to (jointly) help us make a donation to the sponsor of the event, North Carolina Children's Hospital. They do amazing work for kids in need, and we'd like to help them make a few more lives better. We're setting a goal of $1000 in listener donations, and Aaron and Brian will match $1000.

Every little bit helps, and donations are tax deductible (US laws apply).

We'll do the training, run the miles and suffer the consequences of sugery gluttony. You listen to the show, give a few $$ and maybe tell a friend. We all help make the kids lives a little better.

It's a win-win for everyone involved. If anyone wants to join us on the run, you're welcome to join the Cloudcast pack (12 donuts is optional). If anyone has creative ideas for costumes that Aaron and Brian should wear, we're open to suggestions. If anyone can get matching corporate sponsorship for the donations, all the better.
