Fundraising for Diabetes: A very special plea to my readers


On June 5, 2011, the annual Tour de Cure, organized by the American Diabetes Association, will take place in Reston, VA.

And what is the Tour the Cure? You ask. Well it is a cycling fundraiser to support research for diabetes.

And what do I have to do with that? I have signed up to bike for 33 miles to support this fundraiser, which is pretty freaky since I am not particularly good on a bike. It shall be interesting to say the least, and I am pretty terrified. But I shall do it, and I am training for it. Yay bikes!

So today I am asking you to help me raise some money for this cause. Here's the deal, you contribute with $10, and I ride for 33 miles. Does that sound good? I do hope so. I will be thinking of you when I am sweating my butt off climbing a hill or screaming in terror as I careen on the way down. At any rate, it will be fun. At least for those watching from afar...

So if you're game, click on the link below. I am trying to raise at least $200. I have raised $75. If I can raise more, I will add a little jig at the end of my race.

You can click here if you wish to make a donation. You know you want to!

Thank you muchly!
