94. The “Race to Cure Bladder Cancer” was a complete success, and the race director for this 5K, Bettina, is quite proud of her efforts, which raised $12,000 for the Harristown Bladder Cancer Research Foundation. The race generated lots of good will, race attendees heard her spiel about the organization and the research the foundation is funding, there were scores of pictures taken at the event, and the honorary chair, WCFR-TV anchor Filipina Wilder, would more than likely to mention her participation as the race starter on the 6-o’clock news. Race participants and their supporters were treated to baskets of fruit, bagels, candy bars, and granola bars donated by the local supermarket. Cleaning up wasn’t as much of a chore as she had anticipated, and she was able to load the surplus food into her car without the need for assistance. The bananas might not last that long, but the bagels were freezable, and the candy and granola bars would fill her kids’ lunch boxes for the rest of the year.
a. Is Bettina’s behavior ethical?
b. What alternative behavior might have been available to her?
