10 hours without sleep (8 hours with skates)…

What’s dumber: to rollerskate for 8 hours straight or to rollerskate for 8 hours straight in 20 degree weather, in Colorado, when I should be sleeping? Yep you guessed it, it’s definitely the second one, which is why this Friday night I will be strapping on skates and skating around a Chickfila parking lot from 10:30pm until 6:00am! I know I’m supposed to be taking a break from this blog for another week, but this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. But this time, instead of going 10 Days Without something — I’m going 10 hours without sleep and 8 hours with skates strapped to the bottom of my feet.

On Friday night, our local Chickfila is sponsoring a fundraiser for Dream Centers of Colorad Springs. The Skate-A-Thon is poised to raise funds for an organization that provides “quality, timely, and affordable healthcare for women ages 18-65.” It’s pretty cool because it gives doctors and healthcare professionals an opportunity to serve their local community by meeting the health needs of uninsured or underinsured women (talk about apathy to compassionate action). The Dream Centers’ Women’s Clinic will provide electrocardiograms, women’s physicals, mammograms, and much more to women who need it the most.

As a skater, I’m trying to raise $250 for the cause. Not much, but if each of the 100 skaters raise $250 well you can do the math. It’s a pretty exciting and I’m super pumped about the opportunity, but I need your help to hit the $250 mark. You can give by clicking here, just make sure you select my name under designations (Daniel Day). Again the link is http://tinyurl.com/3s7nofr  and don’t forget to click on Daniel Day under designations.

I can’t wait to re-start 10 Days Without on November 20th. To get ready for the re-start: I will be asking you to vote on the next segments in the next couple of days. Meanwhile, do you have any ideas for different segments? If so you may comment below…
