If you want to stand out from the crowd of marathon runners raising money for charity, you have to kick it up a notch. Such as by running a marathon in a burger suit.
22-year-old Sam Novey, aka Burgerman, aims to raise $100,000 for nonprofit afterschool program Citizen Schools by running the Boston Marathon (April 19) in a custom-made burger suit. For the next six weeks, you can join him on his burger suited practice runs around Cambridge on Saturday mornings by meeting up at local burger chain b.good at 24 Dunster Street at 11 a.m. Your reward at the end of the run: a free burger from b.good!
Citizen Schools brings in community members, businesses, and college students to teach middle schoolers real life and job skills (last year, for instance, Sam taught a section on how to run a presidential campaign). Sam's $100,000 would help expand the program into 20 additional classrooms. You can donate online at firstgiving.com.
