HOTS

HOTS read that the recent Cape Town marathon in South Africa included some trees crossing the finish line. Reuters reported about 20 people strapped saplings to their backs for the marathon to promote the planting of trees native to South Africa rather than invasive species, which sounds like a tree-mendous cause. Still, HOTS thinks running a marathon is grueling enough without a tree strapped to one’s back, but HOTS has to give the runners credit for running with a wild idea (and some baby trees). HOTS thinks awareness for other causes could be generated in similar manners. Anyone up for promoting the construction of housing for the poor by running a marathon with a house strapped to one’s back? Personally, HOTS selflessly volunteers to promote alternative means of transportation by riding a Segway in a marathon.
