The General Lafayette needs Your Help
Don't worry, the business is doing just fine. Though Chris is more than happy to accommodate as many of you that want to stop by as possible. I was excited to be able to join Chris Leonard and the rest of the General Lafayette team on their quest to compete in a very cool relay challenge...for each team member to complete two loops (8.4 miles each) around the Schuylkill River in 24 hours. The event is called the 20in24 Relay Challenge and supports a very worthy charity, Back On My Feet. But, then I checked my calendar and realized that I'll be at The Shore. This organization has received much well-deserved press over the past six months or so. Its main objective is to help get the homeless of Philadelphia "back on their feet" and into a life of self-sufficiency. They do this by using running as a means of building confidence and strength. Chris is being joined by his fellow Dragoon Running mates from the General: Steven Boyle (Bartender Extraordinaire); Tom Kiker (Mug Club Stalwart); Robert McCulloch (Veteran Dishwasher); and Seamus McCulloch (Dishwashing Upstart). Show them some support by wishing them luck at the pub and dropping a donation to their cause. You can also purchase a very sporting shirt that you can purchase from the shop that they set up. Very cool indeed. Run strong Brew Crew!
