A Dare to Remember
November 16, 2010

Take a moment out of your day and read up on Stephen Lewis' latest event for his foundation. It's called A Dare to Remember. Basically, Stephen Lewis is daring canadians to come together for a meaningful cause - raising awareness and funds for combatting the AIDS crisis in Africa.

Toronto-based comedian Pat Thornton is taking part. His dare was to complete a 24-hour non-stop comedy set. His goal is to raise 10K. Last night the man was on his game. But when I checked in on his Ustream channel this morning at the office...dude's deteriorating fast. Admirable job he's doing.

See for yourself...
