Final Push for Diabetes Fundraising – and the Vibram FiveFingers Challenge!

Posted by scott on January 23, 2009

With less than 24 hours until the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes this year, I want to make one final fundraising push.  We are amazingly close to our fundraising goal, with less than $500 to go:

If we can close the gap, I will take up the challenge issue by my friend Terry and I will do the Walk in my Vibram FiveFingers:

It’s a bit bizarre as they are not exactly Mall footwear, and not exactly January-in-Minnesota footwear.  Yes, I will spend a lot of the time explaining them to people and putting up with odd looks, but that’s part of the fun.

So bug your friends and family, and support my Vibram challenge!

    If you think people look at you funny when you run in Vibram Five Fingers, wait ’til you show up at a squat rack wearing them!

    For what it’s worth, I’ve just starting incorporating barefoot runs back into my routine (on an indoor track). Love the feeling of freedom running without shoes!

    Yeah, I bet you get looks on that! They just don’t know what they are missing!
