Cue the enthusiastic bleating of vuvuzelas, folks.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of my friends and family, I have already hit my $200 fundraising goal for the Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell fun run!
As a result, Stephanie has procured for me, one sterilized, standardized, scientificized Santa Hat. Which I will be wearing on the chilly morning run Saturday.
I told google plus this morning that if I hit $300 I would wear some other piece of procured ridiculousness. So if you have any suggestions, drop them in the comments.
Also, a heartfelt thank you to all my donors. Arthritis is something that diminishes or takes away (from millions of people) some of the very things I am just coming to appreciate about my fortunately healthy body. I am glad to contribute to research that gives people the chance to get that back, in any way, to any degree.
