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!

The price of the actual accessories additionally varies from the maker to producer. KNBR also features the pre-game Bruce Bochy Show and the postgame rap. There are now 6 in the series, but the last two have come under heavy criticism.

If you need to duplicate your posts on your website, look no further, this is your plugin. Even though the software itself is a great value, you're probably better off choosing a third-party hosting service. The keyword rank checker ( %url ) rank tracking tool does a perfect job of finding the highest used keywords for you.

With frequency 300m - W every channel, it release the cooling challenge of MIMO RRH design. This technique doesn't involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface and wear out. With this broadcasting facility one is able to watch TV at any pint of your energy regardless of wherever anyone is.

When people arrived at the threshold, jump out your local window, crashing from the glass, and run as distant from a house while you can. It is simple, it really is inexpensive and it gets you precise directions to put you on the best path. The conservative side to Capricorn is effective to the warrior spirit of Mars.

Reservations strongly encouraged, especially if you want an outdoor table. Wearing tight clothing can take away the protective layer of skin covering the tattoo and will cause your healing time to increase. What's your *day job* and how do you incorporate what you do at Pendleton into your designs.

Going for a settlement program will assist you to legally eliminate almost 60% of one's debt amount. High balances will depress your scores and detract through the benefit that you're working hard to achieve. A person with 60 years of credit history will probably be placed differently in comparison with a beginner.

Many high performing rc trucks being manufactured today were created with the objective in mind. On one other hand, there's really no major difference flying daytime or nighttime. It can be fun to the individual collector as well as the whole family.
