Just a few more hours to go... oh boy. $5636.25... just $363.75 more, and S shaves her head. So if this were an actual Marathon, this would be the part where we're racing for the finish line. Imagine yourself standing on the sidelines, cheering us on to victory with your pledge dollars. Just call 586-698-4545 or click the DONATE button on the home page. And if you happen to be the rich Uncle type, feel free to hook us up with the additional 4K we need to hit the big 1-0.
We are well into day two, and well behind our major goal of $10,000. Joelle and Eryn are on the air until midnight, then you can listen to The Adventures of Ro-Man and the Amazing Mr. Brett... these two are strange, but they're giveaways are excellent if you like comic books. As for Nick, he has been awake now for 40 Hours (just another 10 to go buddy). Judging from the pics, our man is just a little on the loopy side. Patty reports that our current grand total is $5273.22. Remember, if we hit 6-Large, get ready for to see a be-shaved head of Ms. S...
From left to right- Brandon, Tyler, and Steven get ready to work it out... Marathon style.
Starting at 4 AM, three of Cousino's finest will be workin' up a sweat over the WPHS airwaves. The workout show is four hours of energetic music and non-stop cardio! Still more prizes for your pledges (ask about our new Marathon t-shirt... sweet).
Andrea and friends whip out the old Halloween costumes... and they say we're too boring for TV... COME ON!
Nick at the 16 Hour mark.
This is hour 16 for the Marathon, and for Nick C. as he tries to stay away for the entire 50 hours of the Pledge Drive. I spoke with Nick moments ago, who said, "I'm just starting to feel the effects of zero sleep. We'll see how I feel in the morning. I've had two, 6 hour energy drinks, but I'm still pretty calm."

Big ups to Mike for his amazing donation of $300! Last year- he had Stefan read the Declaration of Independence... this year (since we have been denied access to the cable station), he issued an audio challenge; download and play William Shatner's version of Mr. Tambourine Man 3 times in a row! With the help of Capt. Kirk, we prevailed. Current total, $3000... now we're gettin' somewhere!
Steph and G-ram yucking it up.
Steph's game show Marathon program is on right now. At the moment, she is doing a version of The Newlywed Game. Except they're not Newlyweds. However long they've been married, it's very funny. Listen online by visiting the home page and clicking on the on-air light. The show continues until 8 PM.

Alumni Josh and Kevin (2001)... guess who is really taller.
