I've finally registered for Beard-a-thon, sponsored by the the Capitals and NHL.com.
You can find my profile here if you'd like to support the cause, the Fort Dupont Hockey Club. Here's a description of the mission:
Washington Capitals Charities will be donating all proceeds from the 2011 Beard-A-Thon to Friends of Fort Dupont Ice Arena. Fort Dupont is the only public indoor ice arena located in Washington, D.C., and the only skating facility in the area that provides free or subsidized skating programs to children. Its Kids On Ice programs provide free figure skating, hockey and speed skating lessons to vulnerable and economically disadvantaged youth who might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn these sports. Lessons learned on the ice, such as teamwork, respect, hard work and discipline, translate to lessons learned in the classroom and beyond.
It's a great cause and the Caps Care program does such good work in lots of different areas. Please consider making a pledge, no matter the amount.
Thanks for your support.
