BENEFITING: J MOSS FOUNDATION
Hope this message finds everyone happy and healthy.
September is sneaking up on us along with my 44th birthday!!!!
I know most of you are wondering.. "She's 44? she doesn't look a day past 30.. :-) " Thanks!!!..
You're also asking yourself... "What fabulous gift am I going to get Yo?" My material wish list includes a new car, 42" tv, maid service, new laptop, weekly massage by a hot hunky man, etc etc. But hold on, don't open your checkbook for any of those.
What can you get me that won't cost a thing? Hmmmm? Well how bout putting on your sneakers and going for a walk. How about a 4.4 mile walk?
I'm very excited to announce Yo's Healthy Birthday Wish/Challenge!!!.
This year, I've decided to make my birthday about renewing my commitment to health. Since I'll be turning 44, I'm pledging to walk, jog and bike at least 44 miles sometime within 4 weeks of my birthday (Sept 13th). My health is important to me, but so is the health of my friends, family, loved ones, and YOU!!!
So... my birthday wish is to have at least 44 people commit to biking, walking, jogging, running or swimming 4.4 to 5.0 miles in 1 week between August 30th and September 27th ( basically the month of September)
If you are unable to participate physically or still feel the need to open up that check book and spend some money for me, please consider making a $25 to $44 tax-deductible donation to the Skinny Gene Project (one of my favorite charities) to help continue their mission to educate those at-risk, empower them with the resources needed to prevent type 2 diabetes.
So... who's in? who's gonna help me celebrate what will be a great 44th year?
And who's gonna go crazy and do more than 4.4 miles.. or even pass on my birthday wish to your friends, family, co-workers? I'd love to have 100 people help me with my wish; YOU can help me with that.
Thanks for listening and LET'S GET MOVING.
