BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!!!!

The owner of the pharmacy in town, who's my pharmacist, just messaged me and her and one of her employees are joining my team and flying down to the walk to be my Roadies!!

These guys watched me go through my ordeal and were so awesome and amazing to my family as we walked through hell. They may even have another couple of my dear friends coming up to join the effort!!

Elizabeth, let the other teams know they got some competition comin to Texas! Representin Idaho STYLE!!!

Here is a link to my personal support page. It shares a bit of my story and has a current picture of me and a short video of me just after my mandiblectomy.

If you're going to be coming to the San Antonio Walk feel free to join my team! If you can't make it and wish to show support feel free to donate, it's easy and secure through the link above. I'm excited to be able to share my story, it will actually be the first time I've ever done so entirely. It's going to be a wild ride I'm sure.

Brian, Elizabeth thank you for the opportunity to participate and help support OCF!

As many of you who've read my post for years know, I'm "REALLY" competitive. I view most of the things in life as a competition, and set personal goals to challenge myself. That fire has served me well throughout my life allowing me to accomplish things I'm very proud of.

I set a goal to build the #1 fundraising team for the San Antonio Walk and be the top individual fundraiser for the event. According to the Event home page I'm currently in the lead in the team category and #2 in the individual category in just over a week of getting it rolling.

I'm throwing down a gauntlet to anyone else attending the walk as I believe friendly competition pushes people to higher heights. If you are attending or raising $ for the walk take this as my challenge to you to beat me. So bring it and let's make a difference!

Eric

The gauntlet has been thrown...is there anyone to pick it up?

Currently my team, the coolest team in the country, made up of elite, specially trained, fundraising ninjas known as Team Edward and or Jacob, is blowing up the competition! We are currently the top fundraising team...not just in San Antonio but all of the registered teams currently on Donor Drive from all of the walks around the country. As their captain, setting the standard I'm also the #1 fundraiser with 6 weeks left to go. It's lonely at the top...

Now I know Elizabeth is a fighter and won't stand by while a simple hick from N. Idaho is out proving that not everything is bigger in Texas, namely donations, however she's getting the WWE Smack Down right now. Now I know I need a good whoopin, and I was "hoping" someone in Texas had big enough boots to fill the order...and where there's still hope there, I'm throwing the gauntlet down across the country! Challenging anyone to bring it and beat me in raising donations!

That's right people, the smack talkin is alive! Where I'll keep it civil, fun and playful! I believe that healthy competition pushes us to do great things, and this is for a great cause as we all know!

So here's you opportunity to join or support my team, OR to teach me a little humility (which I think is more fun! but maybe impossible...), either way let the games ROLL ON!!!

It is a sad sad day! I'm officially getting beat by a girl! And not just any girl, but Elizabeth Sikon, the ruthless competitor from Texas who's pulling out all the stops to try and beat me!

OK time to regroup and strategize on how to beat someone impossibly better looking than I am! It's time to pull out the Puppy Dog Face....crap, half of it broke after my first surgery....Batman Mask!!! Batman is always the answer!
