Not sure if it's really charity fraud if he in fact donates the proceeds to the stated charity. Any lawyers out there have an opinion on this?


The above links to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations web site, which is a legitimate charity worthy of your support. The problem was that on Kip's web site he was soliciting donors to direct funds directly to his web site World Record Run instead of to CFF. Were all the donations forwarded to CFF? Who knows? His web site is down now so if there were any shenanigans going on, they would have ended.
