This might be a bit offtopic, but it’s for a good cause. Aaron Bartell, a System i consultant and big proponent of RPG on the platform, is running a marathon in Chicago on Aug. 7. His goal is to raise $10,000 for World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization that is tackling worldwide child poverty and hunger.
But Bartell is throwing in a twist. For certain landmarks, Bartell has agreed to remove hair from certain parts of his body. At the $1,000 mark, he’ll shave his head. For $2,000, the armpits. And so on, until at the $10,000 mark, Bartell will hand over a hand buzzer to his 4-year-old son and let him get artistic on his head.
