A Message From Miheer Patankar

Hey Everyone! A few months ago I promised to run 1 mile for every $10 donated to BBBS Move for Kids Sake. This time around, I'm going to try something a little different. I'm trying to raise $500- If I hit this goal, I'll take on one of two tasks-

1) If the total amount fundraised is odd: I'll do 1 pushup for every dollar raised. (I'll do all the pushups in a day)

2) If the total amount fundraised is even: I'll try to do a handstand, 1 second for every $10 raised.

So essentially I won't know what I'm doing til the fundraiser is over. I'll of course film the results and send them out at the end.
