BENEFITING: KOSAIR CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
I'm in need of extra incentive to get in shape...I've come a long way, but am not done yet and the journey has taken a side-street lately. I've decided the best way to do this is with some peer pressure... and money.
My goal here is to lose weight and inches off my waist, while at the same time raising money for Kosair Hospital.
Why Kosair? When I was 5 years old I had open-heart surgery to repair an atrial septal defect. Thanks to Kosair I was able to get this. At that time I had the largest defect ever performed in that hospital, and during the surgery it was discovered that had I not had that surgery I probably would not have lived to see 3rd grade. They gave me a chance in life, now I'd like to give a little something back to them.
So here is my request: My goal is to lose 20 pounds by June 15th. Would you pledge to donate just $1 per pound? Imagine... if only 20 people would take this pledge, that would be $400. I'm not out to change the world in one mass swoop here, but we can change the world one act at a time.
