Fellow EMS blogger Divermedic, of A Look at EMS From 120 Feet Below, took up the Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraising challenge early, pulling out all the stops at raising as much money as he can, including convincing his employer to match employee contributions to the designated charities. This is likely to a) dramatically increase the total funds raised, which I applaud wholeheartedly, and b) vault Divermedic to first place in the standings, which will make AD a sad clown indeed if I don't win that gun. Oh well, I suppose I'll just have to console myself by thinking of all the money we raised.
I'd say that Divermedic really, really wants that Ruger .22/45, but that wouldn't be true. The truth is, this is a personal cause for him, just as it is for so many of the participating bloggers.
He's an EMT-B, diver med tech, a shooter, Second Amendment advocate, and all around great guy. You can support his fundraising efforts for the Prostate Cancer Foundation here, and LiveStrong here. Drop by his blog and let him you know you appreciate what he's doing, and drop a few bucks in the kitty for cancer research while you're there. If even 20 of you donated $5 each, that's $100 toward a very worthy cause.
