What could be more corporeally energizing and spiritually uplifting than engaging in sustained, communal physical exercise, and all for an indisputably excellent cause? In recent years there has been a proliferation of fund-raising sporting events, for all kinds of worthy causes, up and down the country.The logic is clear. In general, we seem to be more disposed to the idea of parting with some of our hard-earned cash for the benefit of those less fortunate than ourselves when the petitioners are willing to make a clear effort in return. The proof of the greenback-generating exercise is there to be counted and allocated.
