"That's the Dude, he's a lazy man - and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide." -The Stranger, The Big Lebowski
When: 1:00PM-8PM September 22, 2019
Why: To help the families of seriously ill children at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio
Who: All the dudes, dudettes and Little Lebowski Dudely Achivers around Central Ohio who want to support local charity, specifically the Ronald McDonald House.
Where: Land-Grant Brewing Company.
Dude Charity is excited to welcome you to our second year of Lazy Duders! The Lazy Duder Zero Point One Kilometer (0.1K) is a non-run/"race" Fun Obstacle Walk for individuals who want to have that amazing feeling of supporting a fantastic cause by crossing the finish line of a race. . . . . without all of the months of training. The distance is correct for those of you wondering. It will be 0.1 kilometers or roughly 328 feet. Some might call us lazy, out of shape or even bums but we just want to be called dudes/dudettes who do good.
Proceeds of the Lazy Duder go to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio and the many other local charities that Dude Charity supports. RMHC is an amazing organization who provides a home-away-from-home at the Ronald McDonald House for families of seriously ill children being treated at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and other local hospitals. We are a 501(C)3 trying to make Central Ohio a better place specifically thru our multitude of events and also thru promoting volunteerism. We are honored to be working with RMHC in this endeavor. Our goal is to make a big enough donation to place a permanent paver with “Dude Charity” emblazoned on it atop the house in the Serenity Rooftop Garden. The BIGGEST Ronald McDonald House in the WORLD is right in our backyard on E Livingston Ave.
The Lazy Duder Fun Walk will be an obstacle course style event with some very dude-esque challenges along the route. Running is NOT allowed and you will be "entering a world of pain" if you do so. We will be determining who the laziest dude is in Central Ohio. Are they in running for laziest worldwide?
Obsatcles vary from Duder to Duder but some examples include:
1. "There's a beverage here man!" - start with a White Russian (non-alcoholic version available) or beer that cannot be spilled or set down during race
2. "Donny's Throwin' Rocks" – Knock down a few bowling pins
3. "The Dude's Car" – Dignin’ up The Dude’s iconic 1973 Ford Gran Torino
4. "Walter's Ringer" - unpack a duffel bag full of the whites (fake ransom cash) into The Dude’s briefcase
5. "That Rug Really Tied the Duder Together" - pose The Dude's Tai-Chi pose on The Dude's Rug
6. "Finishing My Coffee" – grab a modestly priced receptacle and cross the finish line
