Have you ever felt like plunging into a gigantic pool of gelatin?
Come on, we know you have – and if you really haven’t, then you’d probably love to see some other people do it, wouldn’t you?!
How about some famous people plunging into gelatin — like some Politicians? Sports Stars? What about your favorite Tampa Bay weatherman… or an icon in local business!
Not only can you see them do it – - you can join them and do it too!
HOW IT WORKS:
1- INDIVIDUAL or TEAM?
You can register as an INDIVIDUAL and take the gelatin plunge by yourself, or if you need moral support, you can register as a cool TEAM and take the plunge with a group of friends.
2- Just CLICK HERE TO REGISTER & CREATE YOUR FREE FUNDRAISER page! It takes just one minute. We promise! And once you register, your details will become part of THE LEADERBOARD (bottom of this page)
3- Each Gelatin Plunger (participant) must raise $500 in order to take the plunge on June 15th. (So a team of 5 must EACH raise $500, etc.)
4- But wait! There's more! Why pay the $500 yourself – instead, solicit pledges to meet or exceed your $500 goal. You have like a bajillion facebook friends, and twitter followers, right? Now's the time to put that social network to social good! Ask everyone you know to sponsor you by donating just a few bucks. After all, who wouldn't pay to see you plunge into a pool of blue gelatin? You'll be amazed how quickly your coffers fill to meet the $500 plunge buy-in!
5- Once you've raised at least $500, you're golden! We'll see you at the event! Join us at Ribit's Bar-B-Que on Saturday, June 15th. Be sure your swimsuit is on and your friends' cameras are at the ready, 'cuz this is gonna be a blast!
Now here's a story with some muscle…!
As well as the biggest muscles we've ever seen, our very good friends, Dan & Nicole Long of Kill Mode Training, also have the biggest hearts!
Last week, Dan made one of his periodic visits to the CCC. And with the big guy? An equally big check for $1300.
I guess you can say it's just how they roll….
The donation was raised at a recent holiday party that Dan & his lovely wife Nicole threw for family, friends and colleagues.
THANK YOU KILL MODE! It just goes to prove that with a healthy body comes a healthy soul.
Want to get fit yourself? Check out the new 'Suspension Revolution' that keeps Dan, Nicole, their team and clients all looking as great as they do. Supporting these awesome and LOCAL entrepeneurs who support the CCC helps keeps the love all in the family!
No matter who you were rooting for in 'The Big Game' a few weeks ago, the Children's Cancer Center was the winner!
THANK YOU to HSW ASSOCIATES who hosted our first 4 Seasons Party, entertaining dozens of friends and family during the broadcast of Big Game with a cool football theme! Through a mix of donations, raffle items and more, HSW scored $3,985 for the CCC.
Now that's a game-winning drive!
Whether you are an individual, family, group of friends or a corporation, YOU can host a 4 Seasons party – with a theme all your own – have a blast, and at the same time help local families battling childhood cancer or chronic blood disorders. CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW!
