Today’s A+ Award goes to Mr. George Hood. I’m not sure exactly where Mr. Hood lives, all I know is that he lives in Illinois. I know. Big state. But, anyway, Illinois.
For 85 hours recently, George Hood focused on nothing but pedaling his bike. He was allowed a five minute break for each hour of pedaling completed. (In my opinion, not nearly enough!) However, other than that, he was on a mission to pedal and pedal and pedal some more.
What he was racing toward wasn’t really any particular location; after all, he was pedaling on a stationary bike.
What he was after, however, was a successful fundraising drive for the Illinois chapter of COPS, an organization specifically designed to help the families of slain police officers.
He raised $25,000 for COPS!
A+ George Hood. A+.
What a great idea and a great accomplishment. I haven’t done much lately to show my appreciation to those who protect me day in and day out. I need to find something to do for them.
