I would like to initiate a "Walk Against Lyme -- For Those Who Can't," beginning on May 1st in Augusta, Maine. This will parallel a walk that will take place in Minnesota on May 5.

A Walk was initiated last year by the Ya-Yas of Rebecca Wells' fan website. Here's how it works: form teams of 4. Walk each day in May (we did it in April last year).

Get pledges and donations supporting your walk -- 10-25 cents per mile you walk is fine, or a flat donation. Report your miles walked each week to your team captain, who will report them to me. The team that comes in LAST has to pay an additional $25 per person to a Lyme cause. [Big Grin]

I parlayed this last year into $450 in pledges and donations. If someone wants to give to a non-profit for tax reasons, donations can be designated to go to the LymeAid4Kids Fund of the LDA.

My son and I had fun with this. And I gotta warn you -- our team did not lose!

I would like to walk our first mile to the State House on May 1st, when they declare May Lyme Disease Awareness Month.

Let's go!
Shaz

Can you walk, tutu?

Think of it more like "strolling," since it's done over a month. Walk when you want -- a little each day, or a lot on weekends. It seemed like the members of our team were averaging about 1 mile a day.

Last year, it was a great way to lose some weight, get in shape, and see spring, all for a good cause!

It's easy to do. I will be making a cover letter and pledge sheet available over the next few days.

Gettin' my walking shoes on,
Shaz
