So it turns out I’m still one of the Gold Challenge’s highest fund-raisers so far. That’s pretty cool! I haven’t quite reached the heights of the guy raising money to save the rhinos, but I’ml making good progress.
However, it also turns out that, if I raise £500 more (bringing my total to £1500), I will find myself in the London Olympic Stadium on the 1st of April, with 20,000 people in attendance. I will then race 100m against other Gold Challengees, for the amusement of the baying crowds.
It’s not quite the gladiatorial arena, but I think it’s the closest I’ll ever realistically come to being Spartacus.
If you would like to help me achieve my dream of performing a totally pointless act in front of thousands of people, all in the name of charity and adventure, please donate to my Gold Challenge here on my fund-raising page.
