I was watching the news at lunch time, well sort of daydreaming ... waiting for my soap (Days of our Lives) to come on when I hear this thing about walking to help kids. I started paying attention & found that this Saturday at the Zoo they are going to be doing a walk ... $10 per entrant but it includes admission to the Zoo plus a cool t-shirt to show you are support kids. I know you shouldn't get all excited about cardio ... but if you know me at all, you know I actually love to exercise & I love going to the Zoo so this is just the perfect thing for me to hear about. Wanna know what the kids think about it? Nick says sure, I'll do it ... Lysa says ... can I run? She's my little runner. Of course hubby will do anything I ask of him but he said he would have asked me to do it if he heard it first. I'll take lots of pics to share!!! =D
The only bad thing about the day is registration starts at 7:30 & we live 1.5 hours away. Oh well, it's for s good cause!
This is the article I found on it ...
Fitness, food and fun will abound Saturday at the Montgomery Zoo, all to benefit Montgomery's public school students.
Partners in Education (PIE) is holding its third annual Zoo Walk fundraiser, which supports tutoring, mentoring and work-force development programs that PIE provides to schools.
Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with the walk starting about 8. Registration cost is $10 for adults and $5 for students, which includes a T-shirt and a full day of zoo festivities following the walk.
"We encourage the community to come out and bring your family, friends and people from your workplace to enjoy a wonderful day of fun at the zoo and support public education," said Dan Jones, PIE board president.
"ZoobyDoo" the zebra will make an appearance, and there will be face-painting, food and music, and several high school bands and cheerleaders will perform.
"We hope that the walk will be just as nice as it was last year," said Mary Briers, chairwoman of the Montgomery County Board of Education.
