Help Silent Clark silence cancer!!!

I don't know about my colleagues at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, but as far as fundraising was concerned, I really thought I had seen it all. I've seen tricycle races raise hundreds of dollars, pasta cook-off competitions that would make a Top Chef proud, even some pretty interesting Bachelor and Bachelorette auctions. That was nothing compared to what the month of May would bring. Enter Silent Clark...

Clark Harris aka Silent Clark is an alumni of the Team In Training cycle program. He participated in his mother's honor in 2006 and raised over $6,500 for LLS as she battled Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Since her passing, Clark has been looking for a bigger challenge and he's definitely found one: a month of silence and a goal to raise over $100,000!

Clark's only communication during the month of May will be through Social Media (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, etc.). In his own words, "What better challenge for a guy who never shuts up than to not talk for a month?". His goal is to raise over $100,000 during these quiet times and he's well on his way with close to $5000 raised so far. But he's got a long way to go and needs your help.
