Y'all. I need a favor. May I borrow 5 bucks? I am RUNNIG in a LEGIT race IN MAINE on August 1, 2014. Legit, as in, there are roads closed, and buses taking people around, and only small, clear bags allowed at the runner-bag-check-thing, a-la-TSA. And I need $5.
It's the BEACH to BEACON 10K people. It's kind of a big deal. An Olypmic gold-medalist (from Maine!) founded the race, and tons of money gets raised for local charities, mostly related to children. I am lucky enough to be running for the Camp Sunshine team. Camp Sunshine is a retreat campus in Casco, Maine that is dedicated to provided a place for rest for children facing terminal illness, *and* their families. Get this:
"Camp Sunshine is currently the only full-time facility in the nation whose sole purpose is to provide respite for the whole family."Only one in the nation! Pretty neat, yes?

So, I have been "training" out here in Ohio (ramping it up this last week...) to be ready for the run. I wish I were more ready, actually, but the time-space-life-happens-continuum being what it is...here we are. I am glad, though, that I get to promote this special place for kids, and try to help them out by telling YOU about them. Because those kids are way cuter than I am:

May I pretty please have $5?
The goal for each team member is to raise $1,000 for the Camp. My doting sister made a donation immediately, and then...nadda. I promise that it is *super* easy to chip in. Click the fancy "DONATE NOW" button to your right>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And select $1000...::ahem:: I mean, $5, and proceed. ;)
Or, you can click this spiffy link here, and go from there.
I will pay you back someday when you have a thing...just let me know, and my $5 is there for you too :D
You all are the best, greatest, and prettiest. xoxo
