You're probably wondering, "What in the world is a Dryathlon and why would I want to be involved?" Well, you don't have to be an athlete to participate in one.

Participants in this Dryathlon seem to be spreading across the country and into Maine.

What is a Dryathlon?

A Dryathlon is a person going "booze-free" for 31 days for one reason or another. People who partake in Dryathlon's are called 'Dryathletes.'

More health charities are encouraging people who drink to abstain from alcohol for the month of January 2018.

In the U.K., people are becoming Dryathletes in order to help raise money for cancer research. They're willing to put the bottle on the shelf (or in the fridge, for that matter) in order to raise money and bring awareness to cancer research.

If you're a part of a charity or participate on a Board of Director's of one, you might entertain the idea of promoting a Dryathlon.

With a little creativity, you could market this to bring some much-needed funds to cancer research, or Alzheimer's research, or whatever your favorite charity is.

So, instead of dealing with a soggy New Year, or a hungover one, do something different and stay 'dry' in January 2018!
