charity marathons- noble act or free personal fulfillment?

A coworker asks if you will sponsor them for a charity marathon. But does it really seem like you are just paying so they can fulfill a personal challenge? Or so they can check marathon off their list, or try to run a shorter race than last time. Or so they can have a reason to get in shape, and have that hot runners body? How many people really do it for the actual charity?

  1. I have an issue with the donating to a charity through runs, marathons, jumproping, whatever. If someone wants to support a cause, then they should be the ones to give their time and/ or money. Don’t ask your friends or family to “pay” for you to run, jump or whatever to support a charity!
