I'm Riding & Streaming to Raise Money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

It's time to hatch and unleash my latest plan, which is to thank all of my donors with my own sweat, blood and tears... except without the blood and only some of the tears.

For every $10 we've raised (and continue to raise) in 2017, I'm going to ride my exercise bike one mile. To date, I've raised $845, which amounts to 85 miles I need to ride prior to Jan. 1, 2018.

However, that doesn't account for the money we raise throughout the rest of the year, including a fundraising game party my wife and I will throw in December. Also, I plan to stream every mile I ride (while playing video games, of course) on Twitch.
Not only does this comprise an excuse to stream, exercise and play games all at the same time, but it's also an opportunity to publicize my efforts in hopes of raise (and ride) even more!

I'm not sure I'll get a chance to start this evening, but I fully intend to start sometime this weekend. After all, I've got a small trip ahead of me.

While I sincerely doubt I'll raise much simply by riding or streaming, I hope the two ideas create more excitement for my campaign. More importantly, I hope these elements pair with a successful party in December, resulting in achieving my goal of raising $1500 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals via Extra Life in 2017.

For those keeping track, that's 150 miles.
