Give

That time of the year is once again upon us. I will participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure as a way to raise money to help eliminate the scourge of breast cancer. If you're participating in the race, or have already donated, thanks. If not, and you would consider sponsoring me, please drop me an email and I'll send you the link to my personal page. As someone whose life has been touched by breast cancer, I hope for the day when this disease has been eradicated.

For the record, I receive no benefit from donations in my name. My picture won't appear in the paper, my ugly mug won't be on TV and I don't get a paid vacation or any such thing if I receive a certain amount of donations. Sponsoring me only gets your money routed to the right people.

Thanks for your attention. This post will remain at the top of this blog until race day, which is May 10 here in Richmond.

Update: People are very generous. I've reached my, admittedly modest, fund raising goal. However, there's nothing to stop you from giving more. Really, it's a great cause.

Update: Thanks, Bill. It's much appreciated.
