THE STORY:

J MOSS FOUNDATION wrote -

HERE’S THE SKINNY

The Skinny Gene Project, a division of the J.Moss Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping those at-risk prevent type 2 diabetes.

The goal  of the Skinny Gene Birthday Wishes program is to inspire others to work together to receive 1,000,000 exercise miles and to raise $10,000 to help the organization continue their mission to prevent diabetes,one wish... one person at a time.

Make a wish, and passing it on....

CURRENT WISH MILES COMPLETED (May 26- June 23rd): 2,205

Heather McClelland is the most recent recipient of the Awesomeness Award  [Yes, it's an internal thing, but hey, it still counts.] for selflessly dedicating her birthday to provide nutritional counseling and support to those desparate to prevent diabetes.

HERE'S HEATHER'S WISH

This summer I will turn 38 and it also marks 20 years since my high school graduation. Looking back on all the generous gifts I've received through the years, I realize the greatest gift I have is my health. And this year, I ask that you help me bring that gift to others.

When I was 10 my grandfather learned he had diabetes. Back then, I was overwhelmed by a single thought - he could never eat sweets again. Could you imagine? Now that I am an adult, I realize that was the least of his worries. Someone with diabetes lives with the daily fear of losing a leg, going blind or even suffering a seizure because they waited too long to eat a meal. Could you imagine?

Fortunately we all have to power to prevent AND it's easy.

Just take a walk. Pledge your miles and help bring awareness to those in your community.

If you don't want to walk, pledge a few bucks and help someone else spread the awareness.

Or even better - do both!

HERE'S THE CHALLENGE

My personal goal is to honor my grandfather by raising 1,000 units (1 mile = 1 unit and 1 dollar = 1 unit) between July 23rd and August 23rd. I'm personally pledging $25 & 25 miles.

So please, celebrate my birthday with me! Pledge today!

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO PLEDGE YOUR MILES!  Completing this quick pledge form will make it easier for me to keep track of the miles and see how close I'm getting to  reaching my goal.  Once you've pledged, just keep track of all the miles you walk, run, bike,swim etc. Then, on August 23rd, I'll ask you for your total.  See, it's easy!

If you are unable to donate your exercise miles, or are just feeling particularly generous, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Skinny Gene Project, a division of the J. Moss Foundation.

To DONATE DOLLARS, please click the orange DONATE button on the right.

MY GOAL IS TO RAISE A MINIMUM OF $350

So why 350?   We'll,because 350 is the magical number that will help the average person prevent diabetes- $350 pays for 6 months of nutrition counseling and support, and 350 exercise miles is the equivalent number of calories that it  would take to lose enough weight to reduce the liklihood of developing diabetes by 58%.

Thank you for your support!

Love,

Heather McClelland
