I’ve been neglecting this blog lately, but for a very good reason, and Spirit and The Peanut Gallery seem to agree:-)
I’ve taken leave of my senses and signed up to walk a marathon. As in a 26.2 MILE marathon for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training.
For the past several weeks, I have been training to walk a full marathon in my favorite place on earth, Walt Disney World. I’m also working to raise $3,700.00 to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am walking in memory of my late friend Cliff Gorman, who died from leukemia in 2002.
How do I know Spirit agrees? I made a deal with Spirit and The Peanut Gallery that any money I found would get donated to my Team in Training efforts. After every training session, I’ve found a penny to donate to the cause. Granted, theyr’e being a bit cheap, and I keep asking for the fives and twenties, but the pennies are at least a sign that they’re rooting for me!
Please visit my Team in Training Page at
http://pages.teamintraining.org/nyc/wdw10/cmartzinek for updates, info and to make a donation in support of my efforts.
From now through the end of October, I will be holding an online Tastefully Simple party, and the consultant has generously offered to donate 20% of the total sales to Team in Training on my behalf. If you would like to help by purchasing delicious food and holiday gifts, please e-mail me with “Tastefully Simple – TNT” in the subject, and I will send you a link so that Team in Training gets credited for the sale.
Anything you can do to help me get the word out, and raise needed funds in this challenge will be greatly appreciated! If you have a facebook page or web site, and can place a link to my Team in Training page on it, it would help so much!
