Hi Bob - whilst the MDC is a great charity be aware that very little of the money raised is targeted to Duchenne and even less to research. Hopefully you can jump on board with targeting funds at a member of the Duchenne Alliance so the funds can go towards finding a cure.
Thank you to everyone who has offered to help.
This is the future my family and I face unless a cure or at least something to stall the progression of Duchenne.
But in all seriousness a brand new Archimedes II wetsuit not launched until tomorrow in medium, been worn once (results go live tomorrow) maybe a Garmin 1000, a visor signed by Macca at Kona and I'm sure I could drum up some other kit. Happy to host the sale, either throw it up on the website shop or set-up an auction site if there's to be a bidding type affair.
Hi, firstly thanks to Hope for suggesting this. Secondly, thanks to those that have donated already.
Like everything on the good ship PSOF you never get all the crew agreeing and with such a large crew these days then there's not a wonder. The main ship might be sailing to Austria in 2015 but there'll be smaller raids and solo missions all over the world and at all distances.
Hope isn't asking for the event(s) to be taken over, nor there be a rebranding or mission hijack. I'd even suggest that for those who have a strong affiliation to other charities that they maybe use the pirate momentum but to fund raise for these charities. Obviously I'd love for you to do it for Harrison's Fund, even if it were a percentage but there's no cat-o-nine-tails for those who'd rather not.
I said to Hope when she suggested this that it would likely be divisive and with not being a current serving member of PSOF then it would be silly of me to start this thread.
I hope you can see with the race entries, discounts etc that I've always had an eye open for where I could help. Tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of the Buccaneer website, now there was another Fegan divisive move but through that there's been in excess of 25 free race entries that conservatively saved £2000+.
Like the first ever PSOF adventure and every subsequent trip, things are more fun when done together and the accomplishment of the group always far exceeds what could be achieved by a single person.
So for those that have helped or will help in anyway Cormac &I thank you.
One little request, please don't turn a good natured and charitable thread into a debate of what and isn't the pirate ethos
