Anyone who is close to me knows that I normally do not ask. It pains me to come out of my shell to do so. But sometimes I surprise myself. So, here goes.

On May 17, family members and I will be walking together as a team in Walk to Cure Diabetes benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

I will be walking as a member of The Pink Panthers team, and would appreciate any support that you could give for this very worthwhile cause.

Since there are 18 million Americans affected by diabetes, including my niece with type I diabetes, I believe that my work with JDRF is important and well worth the effort. I am particularly proud of the fact that JDRF has provided more funding for diabetes research (over $900 million since 1970) than any other non-governmental agency in the world.

I hope you will consider sponsoring my participation in this event; any amount will help the work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Visit my walk web page if you would like to donate online or see how close I am to reaching my personal goal or follow this link to make a donation: Make donation. If you would like to send a check the information can be found on my walk web page. Your donation will be tax deductible.

Thank you for considering this request for your support.
