Pictured to the right is me, Simon Weatherill - CEO Melbourne Sports Hub, at Los Angeles in 1984. Weighing only 88.2kg and being able to run 400m at 53seconds, life was GREAT.
Now in the year 2012 at 119.8kg, everything is downhill from here.
My CEO challenge is to weigh less than 100kgs by 17 December 2012 and I challenge you to get involved.
Apart from hoping to stay on the planet for a few more years just to haunt you lot out there and have a few more laughs on the golf course, I've decided that the only way to do this is to make a public fool of myself if I do not achieve.
To this end, I understand that 22,000 children die each day from preventable causes and to further motivate myself if I do not achieve the target I will personally donate $1,000 to UNICEF to make it my business to become a Champion for Children.
I will be hosting a breakfast on Friday 7 December, together with guest Olympians and Coaches, to reveal my journey and program secrets. This breakfast will aim to raise more corporate money for UNICEF and in the lead up to the breakfast I encourage you to donate $10 for every kilo that I lose.
Donations of all sizes are welcome at my UNICEF Everyday Hero site.
For those doubters, any well wishes and messages of encouragement are welcome. If you see me eating a pie or drinking a pint, you are welcome on this occasion only to tip it over me!
I also challenge you all to challenge yourself and other people by publicly displaying your goals and targets for a fitter and healthier you. You can do this via our MSAC Facebook site.
Good luck on your journey and keep track of mine at any of our web, Facebook or UNICEF sites.
Simon Weatherill, CEO
