    HA HA HA! I been doing marathons for over 10 yrs and I absolute HATE to fundraise. This is why… it is never-ending!! Team in Training (TNT) is the WORST of them all! They even got pre-written sobbing email templates for people to use. All they have to do is fill out the person’s name and email address and everything else is taken care of. Then you get an email looking like your friend just wrote it for a “worthy cause”. Don’t get me wrong, it is. But if someone is really dedicated to fundraising for a cure of their choice, donate it directly to the hospital or research. Cut out the middle person. TNT gets a cut of those donations. On top of that, people who signs up get a free trip out of it. Do you know for races out of their hometown, they will “pay” for their flights and hotel? Who pays them? YOU DO! You people who “donate” to their cause! And people who repeatly asking their friends and family to donate is just tacky.
