OAC Walk From Obesity is TOMORROW! HELP!

I'm walking in the Walk From Obesity on April 30th.  TOMORROW!


Last year I raised almost $2500.00 for the Walk.  (Also, the year before…etc.)

I just raised the equivalent of about $3000.00 in memberships for the OAC's Membership Drive.

Don't make me sweat for no cause, kids. I don't sweat on purpose for ANY reason.  You don't think I am serious, I am.  *grin*  Add to that, I'm going to be sweating by myself, with my boo-boo.  *tear.

Please join me?  If you are local enough – do it.  Please!

This spring I'm participating in an event called Walk from Obesity which benefits the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation and Obesity Action Coalition (OAC).  This will be my fourth? year participating in this program.

Every day, millions of people are affected by obesity and its related health conditions. It's a complex, multi-faceted and often life-long struggle that is frequently misunderstood. That is why I joined the Walk from Obesity – to fund research, education and advocacy efforts to help fight this disease.

This is an epidemic of crisis proportions. Yet so few people (and even fewer fundraisers) are willing to speak out, and take a step toward helping the problem.

Please take a moment to visit the TEAM PAGE and make a tax-deductible donation today towards my fundraising goal. Simply click the link at the bottom of this email. It's that easy! Donating online is easy, fast and safe.

Plus you'll be making a big difference for a good cause.

Thank you in advance for your support.
