There’s nothing like a good thrill. Elaine and I both enjoy a good theme park ride, especially extreme roller coasters. The adrenaline felt when we get to ride an awesome roller coaster is amazing. Certainly, it helps that we both share this passion for thrills – something that we both are thankful for. With that said, an even greater thrill is giving back. Sure, it is great to make some money and buy a few luxuries in life, but giving back is a thrill that truly beats all others. There are many ways that we all can give back, and certainly we like to mix it up and give back in a number of ways.
On June 7, 2013, we will again be giving back. This time, however, we will be giving back to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We are participating in their second annual Coasterthon at Six Flags Over Georgia! So, in a way, it is the best of both worlds for us. Plus, all of the donations go directly to help improve their children’s cardiac services. It’s definitely a WIN-WIN for all involved, especially for the children. At the event, we will ride Six Flags’ Mind Bender roller coaster for 9 straight hours and will only get a maximum of 5 minutes per hour to run to the nearby restroom. So, we look forward to the challenge.
How Can You Help Out?
Certainly, we are proud to donate our time and money to such a worthy cause. If you’d like to pitch in a few dollars, that would be great. As of this post, Elaine is $70 short of the amount required to guarantee a seat on the Coasterthon. I’d encourage you to donate on her donation page http://bit.ly/ElaineCoasterthon – Also, if your organization would like to donate more than $50 and would provide me a large t-shirt, I would be more than happy to wear your brand on the ride for one hour during the event… since the event is limited to 9 hours, I have to limit this opportunity to the first nine brands who donate. Organizations and brands may donate to either of our pages – Elaine’s (also linked above) or on my donation page http://bit.ly/DwayneCoasterthon
If you elect to donate as an organization, please be sure to signify that when you go to add who the donation is from [on the page], and then tweet or Facebook message me directly so we can coordinate the t-shirt exchange and other aspects!
We certainly appreciate it, and we will be certain to take lots of pictures and let you know how everything went!
