Helping out a good cause – Charlottesville Muscular Dystrophy Association

With relative frequency, I am asked to give to various charities; most often I give as much as I can.

Last week I was invited to be “Locked Up” for Muscular Dystrophy. This is something I remember my dad doing when I was a kid (and he was the Realtor), so I guess this is a sign of adulthood, something I have never quite been prepared for.

In short, I am going to be “locked up” at the Downtown Omni at 10am on 1 November of this year.

Taking a cue from Todd’s recent drive for the March of Dimes, I’ll offer a RealCentralVA t-shirt to the first five donors (of at least $25). I didn’t know until I set up my fundraising page that apparently my goal is $3,000 – which seems quite lofty, but anything that I can do to help out this very worthy cause I will.

76% of donations stay local in Charlottesville, the rest goes to national research (and apparently there’s a research center in Charlottesville).

    Hi Jim, thinks for the connection….obviously my fresh idea is ripe for NOW! There are so many areas that that thought can apply to…I think I’m going to jail in November for MS so I’ll try to contribute also….keep up the good work…
