Running 26.2 miles? A bad idea. Running 26.2 miles with SUPERNATURAL Cast for charity? A better idea.
The generous cast of Supernatural is at it again! Misha Collins (Castiel), Jared Padalecki (Sam), Jensen Ackles (Dean), Rachel Miner (Meg), Rob Benedict (Chuck), and Jason Manns (friend/singer/songwriter) announced earlier this month that they would all be running the Seattle Marathon on November 25, 2018, in an effort titled “The Bad Idea Tour”:
“The Bad Idea Tour” is benefiting Random Acts, a non-profit that “inspires many amazing things around the world every day — from small acts of kindness, such as inspiring someone to buy a stranger a cup of coffee, to much bigger acts of kindness, like building a school in…Nicaragua.” Collins founded the charity nearly a decade ago, and Miner became the Executive Director in 2017.
Every year, Random Acts runs an Endure 4 Kindness (“E4K”) campaign, which allows participants to “[stretch]themselves to their personal limits, and [raise]funds for Random Acts while promoting a message of kindness.” Participants are asked to “[push themselves]to do [their]personal best.” Such a quest can be running marathons or “knitting massive quantities of blankets for the homeless” and just about anything in-between. 2018’s funds from E4K are going towards fighting childhood hunger in the United States.
The Supernatural cast wants you to get involved, too! There are a couple of ways to join in the fun (and probable exhaustion):
- Donate to Team Supernatural via Crowdrise.
- Support Jensen and Danneel Ackles (either in-person or in-spirit) in their Soul Cycle training by donating via Crowdrise.
- Join or create a team participating in E4K. Find a way to push yourself for a good cause.
