I am setting up a team again for the Stride & Glide for IndependenceFirst on May 19. It is 3 days before my 47th Birthday, and I hope you'll join the team or make a donation (say, $47?) to help me celebrate my upcoming birthday! It's a family-friendly fitness event with a 5K Run/Walk/Roll, 1.5 mile walk, Zumba, kids' activities and a lot more. The event is a fundraiser for my employer of 17 1/2 years, IndependenceFirst, a nonprofit that provides services to empower more than 10,000 people with disabilities in our community each year. We are asking you to help by supporting our fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many! It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause. Any amount, great or small, helps. We greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on our progress.
