Short and Sweet...Here Is How YOU Can HELP!!

Hi All!
So I'm sending a off topic note to do some shameless not-me promotion for a charity I love and support as much as I can.  Some of you know that I love my bicycle and I use it to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. After going through my own issues, I'm back to continue my commitment to them.  I'm here asking for you to join me in supporting the charity.

Here's the plan:
I will ride my bike 104 miles on
October 4, 2008
You go to http://pages.teamintraining.org/nca/seagull08/mgarcia and help me raise $5000.

My goals:
1.  Not to die after 104 miles

2.  To raise $1000 in the next 72 hours in $10 and $20 donations - I'm hoping folks will skip ordering a pizza or running to Starbucks and donate that to the L&LS.  $5 can do some much good.

Why do I do this?

How can you join me? http://pages.teamintraining.org/nca/seagull08/mgarcia

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, for listening to episodes 21 and 22 of ENT and thank you in advance for any support you're able to share!!!
