Fiver's Flamingos - Marathon for ALS

For those of you who don't know, some of Mel's friends did something amazing last year, and they are continuing it this weekend. I'll let Janine's telling of it stand, since I can't improve upon it:

So 4 of us did something spur of the moment in 2009, when we got together to run the Disney Princess ½ Marathon (13.1 miles) at Disney World. We made team jerseys with iron on letters, and dubbed ourselves “Fiver’s Flamingos” in honor of Mel, who loves both Flamingos and Disney more than anyone we know.

This year, we have teamed up with The ALS Association of Georgia to help raise some money to find both a cure and treatments for ALS, as we run the Disney Princess ½ Marathon again in March 2010.

Please, if you don’t mind, would you donate 1$ for every mile we are running? That would be 13.1 miles for $13.10. And even if all you have is $1 total, every little bit helps. Just click on the button, you don’t even need a paypal account to donate, just a credit card. 100% of your donation (minus the small fee paypal takes) goes to the ALS Association of Georgia. Not one penny goes towards administering this group or paying race fees, etc.

Donate via PayPal

The ladies run this weekend, so if you are able, why don't you *ahem* PONY... UP... the $13 and change, for a good cause?
