Lets Get Running!

Every year I watch more and more of our beloved environment be destroyed.

Every year I tell myself that I'm going to do something about it.

This year, I'm going to make a difference.

For instance, did you know that 35 million acres of forest is destroyed every single year? That each hour, 3 species of animals, plants and other living things goes extinct? That we have currently lost a 1/5 of the planet's coral reefs, 1/3 of mangrove forests, and 1/2 of it's wetlands?

These kinds of facts and devastating statistics is something that people don't hear about everyday when they watch CNN or read the paper. But it's the kinds of information we need to hear and spread to all of those that will listen. I know I'm listening, are you?

~~

My name is Melissa and I am an environmentalist. I'm a vegetarian and I'm a runner. I figured what better way to use my running that to spread the word about helping the environment.

I ran this race originally in 2003 when I graduated college, but due to a round of nasty tears in my calves, I was unable to complete it. But, I did use it as a way to advocate my cause for saving the Australian rainforests. I ran and raised money for an organization called TREAT (Trees for the Evelyn and Atherton Tablelands) whom I worked with to create travel corridors for the endangered Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo and several bird species. On my own, I was able to raise $1,000 AU after months of bugging my classmates and professors, but I'm hoping this time I can do more.

This year, I'm running the San Diego Rock n' Roll Marathon on June 5th. I have decided again to run for the environment, but instead of just one place, for the environmental world. I have been donating to WWF since I could write a check and hope that you can help me out in my goal to raise $3,000 for the organization. If you want to find out more about them, you can read about their visions (http://www.worldwildlife.org/who/Vision/index.html) and what they strive to do (http://www.worldwildlife.org/what/wherewework/index.html) throughout their website, along with helpful pages about specific animal species who desperately need our help.

If you live in or around the San Diego or Southern California area and would like to participate in the race with me please let me know. I'm forming a group to help lead this change for the environment! And don't be discouraged that it's just a marathon, there is also a 1/2 marathon and a two person marathon relay!

Who's Taking Action

Feel free to post comments in the guest book to help my awesome friends who are participating in the race to help raise money also!

How far will players experience their own unique racial area before joining up with other races. If you can play breed speed about 5 times, then you can get about 2000-3000 Foo - Gems easily. This is where the game teaches you about movement, as you navigate Wilbur through the collapsing tomb.

Members can even have themes to their igloos buy paying an amount in coins. The standard two to three game save slots for a DS game would have been preferable. The first step in taking this route is to go to the main club penguin walkthrough ( %url ) Penguin page and choose the Fun Stuff Column on the left hand side of the screen by clicking the Check it Out button.

Basically, AI that's programmed to be really good at Chargeball. I watched as at least fifty players bounced their way across the berg, hoping to hit the mother lode, the holy grail of cheats, but nothing happened besides their penguins looked a little shaken. There's a club penguin walkthrough ( %url ) with a newspaper once you reached a town.

Fifth mission of club penguin walkthrough ( %url ) Penguin game is called 'Secret of the Fur. Most libraries offer reading programs each summer that challenge your child to read. By talking to the Sensi, players can select the Competition Mode of play and it is in this way where penguins will gain more points to earn the colored belts.

Financial guidelines to help you for Home Loans, Credit Score and more give you the best recommendations regarding how to take control of your precious dollars and generate future savings for financial health. High balances will depress your scores and detract from your benefit that you are spending so much time to achieve. This helps generate confidence the person who is entering the credit card details is the one who owns it.

Awesome site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

There are a lot of social games out there where you get to interact with other players within the game itself and the whole purpose is to explore the game with friends. The role playing games are considered the most addictive genre of games in the whole world. You can be confident that your belongings will be safe.
