The aim was to prepare for the Savannah Bridge Run and raise money for breast cancer victims. Four days before the run they got tattooed with names and logos, sayings and wishes from the people donating money to the cause. Allison Harris from Glitterbox Studios tattooed Tim Leary and other members of Alpha Media and even added a sparkle of pink glitter to show support for breast cancer.

Tim ran the double pump in the Savannah Bridge, meaning both the 5k and 10k run in one day, emblazoned with all the tattoos and ended up raising more than $16,000 for the charity. Tim Leary told news reporters  "All the money stays here locally to help women, help research, and wipe out breast cancer."
