In Search Of Sponsors

Hi everyone. My son W. is participating in his school's annual Walk-A-Thon. Every year the students spend approximately 45 minutes of their school day walking in order to raise money to help others. The event is a fundraiser for one or more people in our local or school community. By walking W. will show civic responsibility, school pride and spirit, increased self-esteem through helping others in need, and an appreciation for what he has. W. has enthusiastically joined his classmates since Kindergarten to make sure he does the best he can to help the child or family that is being sponsored each year.

A boy from our town, Jake, aged 11, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2002 while in Kindergarten. Jake's leukemia was in remission until January of this year when he relapsed. He will be undergoing treatment for the next year and will go on maintenance for another year after that. It is our hope that by raising money for Jake and his younger brother, Colton, aged 7, they will be able to forget their troubles even for one day and have a great time spending important quality time together as a family.

My son W. would like to ask you all if you would help by donating to this worthy cause. You may pledge any amount as every little bit helps. Please click on the Donation Button on the bottom to contribute via Paypal. The donations will run through my business account. Please make sure to include your name so W. can include it on his pledge form. The Walk-A-Thon is Monday, May 21, 2007, so the deadline for donations will be Sunday, May 20, 2007.

W. and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. And rest assured, he will be walking his little legs off to help his fellow classmates!

Please email me at if you would like further information. Thanks again!
