OK, I've hesitated to do this because I don't want to annoy anyone, however I wanted to invite everyone here.

You may, or may not know, that I fund raise for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I rarely mention this (other than my signature line) because I am mainly here to learn about the sport from other, more experienced, athletes.

However, it is a cause that is important to me.

I'm hosting a Happy Hour this Wednesday night at the Burg & Barrel in Overland Park from 6-8pm. There will be food and drink specials and we're selling $10 tickets to be entered into a number of drawings. I've gotten some great sponsorship from 810 sports, 610 sports, Wells Fargo, etc who have donated some great prizes: Royals tickets, gift certificates, etc.

If you were planning to eat on Wednesday night, or have a beer, please consider visiting me on Wednesday night. All the money raised will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There is a group of triathletes training for the Nations Triathlon in Washington DC in September that are collaborating on this.

Here's a Facebook invite with a few more details: https://www.facebook.com/events/530895400297546/

If you can come, thank you in advance. If not, no problem and no pressure.

I'm involved with TnT down here in Wichita. This is the first year I've worked with them (Cap TEx Tri last June) and my first summer of any endurance sports. Sorry I can't be up in KC to buy some food but keep up the great work!

Oh bummer, I didn't see this until today!  Cool fundraising idea - I'm glad it went well.  I've never heard of this place, but it looks good. Might have to head up there sometime to try it.

Ok, last time I am going to do this (this year at least).

This Thursday night from 5-8pm Culvers in KCK (Legends area) is donating 10% of all sales to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help fight blood cancers. I'll be there serving up food, shaking hands and kissing babies. If you need some food please consider coming out. Everything Culvers sells is USA Triathlon approved. Promise.
