MDA Ride & Stride

January 25, 2010

Hey folks, we are joining with MDA this year to promote and participate in the Annual Stride & Ride.  It takes place Saturday morning, February 6th from 8-10am at Lloyd Center Mall right beside Nordstrom.  That’s just a little less than two weeks away.

It’s a wonderful way to raise money for our local MDA folks (Labor Day Telethon sound familiar?) by walking around the mall a couple of times.  Lots of other activities for the kids too, but it all benefits those with one of the Muscular Dystrophy diseases.  I am forming a team of KPTV/KPDX employees and inviting viewers to join us as well, or at least donate what they can.

If you want to help out, you have two options:

  1. Join me there as a member of the team…send me an email at mark.nelsen@kptv.com , I’ll put you on the team.  You are asked to raise $100 either on your own or from friends/family.
  2. Donate online…go to this link.  Very straightforward:  https://www.joinmda.org/2010portlandstride/marknelsen

Thanks!
