Me, in a charity athletic event?! ... AKA my competitive streak
People who know me know that I don't like exercise. And, unlike some members of my family, I have not run multiple marathons for leukemia. I haven't done a bike ride, a run, a walk, a jump rope or even a hopscotch for charity.

... But I'm doing one now!

On June 7, I'll be doing the AIDS Walk in Boston with two others from my store. We will be walking as part of Team M.A.C. This is a great cause, and I'm very excited about participating. It's a 10K walk with a suggested fundraising goal of $500.

My official goal is currently $500, though I'd love to raise even more.

Okay, wait. I'll be perfectly honest. I really, really want to raise even more. I'm not generally a competitive person. But I do have a rare competitive streak that comes out from time to time, and it's pretty fiery when it shows up. One M.A.C. participant from another New England store always passes $1,000, and has already raised over $700! Yeah, I'd like to beat that. Or at least out-fundraise as many others as I can. It's my selfish plan for a selfless cause.

No amount is too small! If you don't know me well, maybe you might still want to donate $5.

Also, my company (M.A.C.) will match all donations dollar-for-dollar, so your contribution is effectively double!

Please sponsor me by giving whatever you can.

You can donate online here.

Thank you!

Hey, I tried to go to the link, but I think maybe there's an extra set of quotes or something? I got a 404 error.
