Going behind bars for "GOOD"

October 14, 2009 - Erik Brown
Are you planning to head out for a run later today? What if something comes up, and you can’t go? No big deal, right? There’s always tomorrow, or the next day… right?
If you’re reading this, running is probably an integral part of your daily life. But, if you’re like me, you sometimes take your health, wellness, and ability to run for granted. So, what if running simply wasn’t in the cards for you – today, tomorrow, or ever? What if merely going for a nice long walk was out of the question? What if your only hope of ever walking or running was that someday a cure would be found for muscular dystrophy? Sadly, that’s the harsh reality many people face.
That’s why I agreed to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) with this year’s “Lock-Up” fundraiser. That’s right, I’m going behind bars for “GOOD” on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at Hoss’s Steak & Sea House. The good news is that I’ll get a terrific lunch out of the deal. The bad news is that I need your help to get “bailed out”. So, I’m asking you to make a donation to MDA to help Jerry’s Kids.
I won’t suggest a donation level. Any amount you care to donate is generous in my book. I tested the MDA donation website, you can donate as little as one dollar. It’s simple, and best of all, your donation will make a big difference in the fight against neuromuscular diseases.
Making a donation to MDA is very easy and, of course, it’s tax deductible. The easiest way to donate is to use MDA’s secure website. Just click here.
Thank you for your consideration of this very worthy cause and thanks for reading Against The Wind!
