I just received a clever fundraising invitation in the mail. It’s for the “No-Show 5K Run.” As the invitation states, this non-event raises funds for the Bottomless Toy Chest, which provides crafts and activities for pediatric cancer patients in Michigan hospitals. You don’t have to show up, and you don’t have to run or walk with hundreds of people. You just can feel great by donating to these hospitals who help children with cancer — Beaumont Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Helen De Vos Children’s Hospital, St. John Van Elslander Cancer Center and Sparrow Hospital.
I just might not show up!
