This is a story I can really appreciate, for several reasons. One, I hate vegetables, and two, I raise money for cancer research every year. Well, it appears that Oakland basketball head coach Greg Kampe and I are in the same boat.
According to CBSSports, Kampe is raising money over the next month to help with Coaches vs. Cancer. His method? He will be accepting pledges -- he is embarking on a crazy diet for 30 days and is asking for people to pledge just $1 per day for that month.
The diet consists of juicing raw vegetables -- and that's it -- for the thirty day period. And Kampe said he hasn't eaten a vegetable since he was in high school -- considering he's fifty-six years old, that's saying something. It was his wife that came up with the idea, and they agreed it was perfect.
