Run for Someone's Life

CARLSBAD, CALIF. -- Along the Pacific Coast today, four dozen people will run up to 26.2 miles to help a handful of children with a potentially fatal disease.

One of the runners is My Love.

One of the children is Thing 1.

This is their cause:

Thanks to all of you who have donated to our efforts. We have exceeded our $25,000 family goal and Cure JM met its overall fundraising goal of $150,000 for the event. You are the most generous, literate blog readers around. You also smell fantastic.

Thanks to our 16-year-old neighbor (and occasional babysitter) for helping put the above video together. In five years, your first legal beer is on me.

Thanks to the rest of you who put up with my begging and pleading here and elsewhere on the Web over the past six months without unsubscribing. I'm grateful and humbled ... but not dumb enough not to try to get you to fork over a fiver or two one last time at our donation site.

Back with the funny later this week. Cheers!


  1. I suck and forgot to donate....going there now! Best of everything, as always, to you and your family.

  2. Huge congratulations on the fund raising!

  3. Wait! This is the first I'm hearing about beer!
    ... and I do smell nice.
    Ok ... I'll click over.

  4. I would have donated earlier, but I actual was unable to read my card number, it took me 2 tries with these new glasses as it was.

  5. There are some beautiful faces in that video. Congratulations on meeting the fund raising goals!

  6. That is awesome. I just hope my horse, Black Hockey Jesus, doesn't throw a shoe or something.

  7. Proving the point that sometimes you're not home - and you are always cool.

    All the best and congratulations on the fundraising!

  8. Congrats on the big day and for making such a worthy goal! Best to Your Love and to Thing 1.

  9. I can't watch the video while at work, but congrats to your family's fundraising. And super congrats to your Love for finishing such a long race (especially in the cold COLD northeast!). And super duper congrats to your Thing 1 for staying strong while battling a serious disease.

  10. Congrats on the fundraising efforts!

  11. that's incredible. Really, really incredible. If I had two dimes to rub together I would send them your way. In fact, i'll be back after pay day.


  12. I'm a sucker for anything named "juvenile." Mine happens to be diabetes, (middle child, type 1)so thanks for doing this.

    Need to head over to the donation site...

  13. Oh, so happy for you! That's just freaking awesome, goals met and hopefully exceeded. Give you wife and #1 a HUGE hug and tell them it's from stranger on your blog who thinks their fantastic.

  14. Hey, congrats on your success! I'm so happy for you all...




  15. Incredibly noble. It's amazing when someone takes the initiative to stand up for a worthy cause by donating their time, their energy and their care to something close to their heart.
