Spring is here! Winter is (kind of) over! Time to get outside and see the sun again!

And what better way to come out of hibernation than with some sweet new gear that allows you to represent Pats Pulpit in style?

As many of you know, I’ll be representing the Pulpit this coming June in Hyannis Port, MA at the The Best Buddies Challenge. Best Buddies is an organization dedicated to creating opportunities for mentorship and employment for individuals with mental and developmental disabilities, and Tom Brady and the Patriots have been partnering up with them for years now. As part of their fundraising efforts, Brady will be hosting a road race this June out on Cape Cod, and I, on behalf of Pats Pulpit, will be there huffing and puffing away. You can get the full details of the event here.

A massive THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far. And to those that haven’t, I’m glad to say that I’ve sweetened the pot by adding incentives for donation in the form of autographs, t-shirts, and hats bearing the awesome Pats Pulpit Logo.

Whose autograph, you ask? The only one that really matters: mine.

That’s right, I will send a personally autographed picture to your house for the simple donation of just $25. An Alec Shane autograph is all but guaranteed* to quadruple in value over the years, so by giving to a great cause you’re making the investment of a lifetime.

But if for some insane reason that isn't enough, we also have other incentives that will reward you for giving to such a great cause: a pretty sweet ballcap and a polo shirt, each one complete with the Pats Pulpit logo. Check them out:

Donation breakdown is:

$25 donation: Autographed picture of THE Alec Shane

$50-$75 donation: Autographed picture of THE Alec Shane and a Pats Pulpit customized ball cap

$75-$100 donation: Autographed picture of THE Alec Shane and a Pats Pulpit custom Polo Shirt

$100 - $250 donation: All three! Signed photo, ball cap, and Polo Shirt

$250+: Super top secret awesome prize

To donate, just click here to go to our team page and follow the instructions. Of course, you're all more than welcome to join Team Pats Pulpit and fundraise with me - you'll also have front row seats to watching me try to run, which is worth the cost of admission all on its own.

After you donate, Just send an email to with your proof of donation (which you'll get via email), preferred mailing address, and size if you're getting a Polo (we have men's and women's sizes). If you've already contributed, don't worry - you're grandfathered in.

I hope to have some pictures to go along with these vivid, borderline photographic descriptions of the gear up soon, but for now, you can rest assured that they're awesome.

Thanks for all your help, and I'll see you on the course.
