Olympian Anthony Lobello is going to be walking for charity in the Relay for Life, trying to raise $50,000 for the American Cancer Society on Friday. I really don't have any extra cash lying around right now - it's all going to diapers and doctor bills, but this is my way of contributing to the cause.
The 2006 Olympian is joining forces with the American Cancer Society to raise money for the Relay for Life Friday in his hometown of Tallahassee, Fla. Typically, participants form teams and take turns walking during the 18-hour event, but Lobello plans to walk the entire time himself. Heís looking forward to the challenge.
...Heís focused on raising $50,000 for Fridayís relay. Individuals or organizations interested in making a donation can call MíLea Davis at 850-297-0588.
If you've got anything extra to give, please donate. It's a great cause and one that's close to my heart.
Also, I know a lot of you do fundraising out there and have sent me emails (I'm talking about YOU, Leen, the charity queen!). I give when I can, but what I'll also be doing from now on is posting them here so other people will get a chance to donate too!Posted by Yano at May 10, 2006 10:25 AM
