Here in Florida, it’s 5k season. There are a number of run/walks to choose from every weekend and I’ve already signed up for two in May. I have no plans to RUN these races, but I’m walking. And walking for good causes.
Below are the two I am doing. I need to do fundraising for both. Please find it in your heart to donate to one or both of these causes. They are both great organizations and do a lot of good for people in this community.
Best Buddies Friendship Walk: Saturday, May 3, 2014. This is a organization a friend of mine is very involved in, and I’m so happy to be getting involved. Best Buddies creates life-changing opportunities for individuals with and without intellectual or developmental disabilities, changing lives for good and creating a community of inclusion and leadership for thousands of people all over the country. You can donate here.
The Kidney Walk: Saturday, May 8, 2014. My dear friend and mentor Scott Harris died of kidney cancer. Not one day goes by that I don’t think of him. I also think, what if we could have caught this earlier? Did you know 26 million American adults are living with kidney disease – and most don’t know it. Your donations will help the National Kidney Foundation help fight this terrible disease. You can donate here.
