The help of friends promoting my weight loss/fund-raising endeavor has generated the first pledge from someone I don't know personally. This is a great benefit of having some great friends. Thanks Meghan Ackerman for sharing, and thank you Shannon George for your pledge of $1/lb. Check out Shannon George Photography at shannongeorgephotography.com where you can see some photos Shannon has taken from her home in Yellowknife, NWT.
Those of you who are on facebook, please take moment to post a link to this blog. Likewise, emailing the link to friends you think may be interested in supporting me could also generate some pledges. Promotion and word-of-mouth will help raise the bar and result in a larger sum being donated to the Choroideremia Research Foundation Canada Inc. in December.
A big thanks to Tony Kiritsis for his generous pledge of $3/lb. Thanks as well to Laura Gay for her $1/lb pledge, and to Erin MacDonald for her $1/lb pledge. These latest pledges bringtoday's total to $18.50/lb. Given that I have shed 6 lbs. so far (down to 199 from 205 lbs last Monday), the total earned donation amounts to $111. Thank you everyone for your support. This is such a fantastic way to stay focused and motivated. More to come.
