How's He Going to Carry 12 Frisbees? Just Give Him MORE!

Donations for JdR's charity run for the Royal Children's Hospital through the Clem7 tunnel have hit $250!

That means he's pledge to carry 12 frisbees on the 10km journey through the Brisbane underworld.

Special thanks to Ultimate community members and regular blog readers, aL 'the Don of Dons' Don, Stu 'Pants, as in "That's so pants"' Austin, Owen 'O-Shep' Shepherd, Andrew 'Mansauce, the World is Better with Mansauce' McKasker, and Adam 'Jangles' Beu for their donations. Please pat these guys (sadly, no gals) on the back when you see them.

If you need an extra reason to pull out that more of your Earth money ... JdR's non-Ultimate friends (are there such things?) are well ahead of the Ultimate community in making donations!

So c'mon Brisbane Ultimate (and beyond), lift your game!

Here's all those details again. Remember, you can donate as little as $2 ... it all adds up!

Ok everyone - there was some recent action in the stately mansion, which
has resulted in the Brisbane Ultimate Blog's own JdR deciding to take on the
challenge of the Clem7 Tunnel Charity Run. The charity bit for the run supports the Royal Children's Hospital - yep, its for sick kids (not "fully sick" like Trevor or
Paige, we mean "really ill").

You can sponsor JdR by going to:

To spice things up, for every $20 donated, JdR will carry a frisbee on the run. So if say he gets $200, he'll be carrying 10 frisbees (1.175kg of plastic), jovially waving them around to the other runners and such, (depending on his fatigue levels of course). [Edit - yes, you can just donate $5 - the $20 bit is the added up thing]
Yep, make a donation and you get to help kids, encourage JdR doing something silly, and promote flying disc sports, all in one go! Now, there's VALUE FOR MONEY.
