Cisco Live 2013 and Alligators

Cisco Live and alligators. What could these possibly have in common? What they have in common starts with a tweet from @CommsNinja (aka Amy Lewis, Data Center and Cloud Marketing @Cisco).

“Are you faster than an alligator? Find out 6/26 in Orlando. http://on.fb.me/11beA5K #CLUS (RT please!)”

I have been to Cisco Live twice and I know things can get crazy. So I was thinking the Cisco Appreciation Event could include alligator races. Instead I found something very serious, important, and very close to my heart.

The 2nd Annual Unofficial CLUS Charity 5K. This year donations are going to the Wounded Warrior Project. The Cisco Live Charity Fun Run donation page for the Wounded Warrior Project is here. I would love to know if I am faster than an alligator, but running a 5K would require a small medical contingent and an oxygen tank.

I am not able to run but I would like to donate. I will donate $1.00 for every one runner faster than an alligator ($300 max).

I challenge other Cisco Live attendees. I challenge you to also donate $1.00 for every one faster than an alligator.

I will donate an extra $10 if John Chambers and $10 if Richard Branson are faster than an alligator.

Donations may be given at Wounded Warriors Project.

See you at Cisco Live 2013 Orlando!!
