Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page!
I’m here to begin hyping up a scintillating showdown between fierce competitors that will culminate with a raucous celebration in South Florida next week—and no, this is not a reference to the Colts, Saints or Super Bowl XLIV.
Because of my ceaseless desire for excellence, Rain Man-esque driving abilities and penchant for shameless self- promotion, I’ve been invited to participate in the Audi Efficiency Challenge. On Thursday, I’ll fly to Washington, D.C., and be handed the keys to a clean-burning diesel sport utility vehicle, the Audi TDI Q7, and embark upon a journey to Miami that will not include many trips to the pumps.
Whoever does this will receive a $20,000 first prize, and when the champion is unveiled on Friday, Feb. 5, at a lavish reception at the W Hotel in South Beach, I intend to be the one strutting up to the podium.
Best of all, I won’t be pocketing the money. I’ll donate my winnings to a pair of Type I diabetes-related charities which play noble roles in coping with and attempting to cure the condition that affects my 10-year-old son and as many as three million Americans.
