FebFast 2010

For various reasons, I have decided to participate in FebFast 2010. FebFast is a fundraiser where participants are sponsored to go alcohol free for the month of February!  The festive season was a very good one for me and I am trying to lose some weight and get a bit fitter this year. I thought this would be a good way to kick it off and support some great charities in the process, so go on, click on the link on the side and sponsor me!

From the FebFast website

FebFast is a charity that is now in its third year of operation.
We work to reduce the impact of alcohol and other drugs on young Australians by raising funds to support organisations working in research, prevention and service delivery concerning alcohol and other drugs use by young people.
We conduct a national education, awareness and fundraising campaign that invites people to sacrifice their alcohol consumption during February, and at the same time raise funds to support youth alcohol and other drug services.
Over the past two years we have seen more than 3,500 people take up the FebFast challenge to give up the grog for amonth. Collectively these people have raised more than $700,000 to support our cause.
Funds from our last two campaigns have been distributed to 13 organisations around Australia.
Proceeds from our 2010 registration and fundraising efforts will be shared amongst the Australian Drug Foundation (that operates nationally), YSAS (the Youth Substance Abuse Service) in Victoria, The Ted Noffs Foundation in NSW and the ACT, Mater Hospital’s Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Service in Queensland and FebFast’s grants program for smaller grass-roots organisations.
