Just in case you don't read my weight loss blog, I wanted to let you know about an exciting event coming up for me this Spring. This year, I'm taking part in Project Bread's annual Walk for Hunger. Although I'm using the Walk for Hunger's 20 mile course as a fitness challenge and as a way to celebrate my continued efforts at weight loss, the Walk for Hunger means so much more than that to me.
Let's face it: the economy has been rough in the past few years. As someone who recently graduated from college, I spent close to a year being either unemployed, underemployed, or working for free. More than ever before, I gained an understanding of what it means to live paycheck by paycheck. While I was fortunate enough to have a roof over my head and food to eat, others are not. By supporting me in my efforts to raise money for Project Bread, you will be helping those individuals who, due to the economy or other circumstances, are unable to put food on the table.
Please consider donating to the Walk for Hunger using my personal sponsorship page (found HERE). I've made it a goal to raise at least $500 dollars for Project Bread, and I still have a long way to go. You can donate as much or as little as you want to - every little bit counts.
