I read her post about a group of her friends doing an obstacle course, high above ground in the forest canopy, and I thought she totally lost it.
On August 14, 2010, she is taking on “Go Ape – Dalby Forest“, a giant obstacle course built into the forest canopy. There are ladders, walkways, bridges, tunnels, and zip lines.
There are a bunch of videos on youtube that show the extreme craziness of what this stuff is all about. This probably looks fun to a lot of you, but never in my life would I volunteer to do this stuff.
Her and a few of her friends pulled together to form “The D-Team”, and they are risking their lives for donations the UK JDRF. Becky recruited Chris Bishop to put this pretty cool logo together, which made me smile and think of Mr. T (not the new Mr. T., and not the now-old Mr. T., but the original tough, gold-chain and mo-hawk wearing, taxi-driving (whoops! wrong show!), Mr. T.)
I think it’s really a fun thing they are doing, and a bit different than what we normally think of when we talk about fund raising.
This little video clip is from a different “Go Ape” location, but it gives you an idea of what Becky and her friends will be doing.
