    Sponsor Me for the Swim With Mike Swim-A-Thon

    Ok, so I often promise that I will write on this thing more often. I really would like to. Maybe I can somehow link it with my facebook so that I can update both worlds at the same time. Or I could turn it into a twitter like page and just write 140 character updates. That wouldn’t be so hard.

    But for some reason, I always feel like I want to do more than just a brief update. I like telling stories – or I just haven’t said anything on here for ages and feel like I need to give an update. Well, I will update you. But first I have a request:

    I am swimming at the Swim With Mike Swim-A-Thon at the University of Southern California on April 16, 2011, and I am still trying to get sponsors for my swim.

    Swim With Mike runs a scholarship for physically challenged athletes, and this year I am one of 45 recipients. If you want to know more, you can go to the Swim With Mike page, or check out the post I wrote about it last year.

    To sponsor me as a swimmer, please go to my Swim With Mike page.

    Additionally, as part of my ideas about how to raise funds for the program, I recorded a song that I wrote about dreaming of a world where nobody needs wheelchairs any longer. Because I am currently a full time student I haven’t had enough time to do all of the things that I would have liked to with the song, like creating a video with other Swim With Mike recipients, but hopefully in the future I will do so and we’ll be able to use the song more effectively. As it is, I am offering it as a free download on the Sauni’s Big Jump website. All I ask is that if you download and enjoy the song, you also consider making a donation to Swim With Mike by sponsoring me for the swim.

    You don’t have to give a lot. You’re probably going to go out and put $5 on your credit card at Starbucks or Taco Bell today anyway – why not give $1 or $2 or $5 to help send disabled athletes back to school?
