Join Stephen’s 5K team in February

wambheaderStephen Vinson started Who Ate My Blog? in February of this year. The purpose of the blog is simple – a friend challenged him to lose 300 pounds between February of this year and April of 2010. If he’s successful, his friend has promised him an all-expense paid trip to the Talladega 500 (complete with limo).

One of Stephen’s goals is to walk a 5K; he’s chosen to participate in the 2010 BE&K 5K benefiting Kid One Transport. He’s even saying that there may even be some t-shirts made up for those willing to be part of the WhoAteMyBlog.com team… Leave a comment on his post and let him know if you’re interested.

Help Nena and Ellie be recognized nationally

We’ve just learned about what you might call the American Idol of therapy dog awards. One of Hand In Paw‘s therapy teams, Nena Moon and her dog Ellie, are one of only five finalist teams from around the country competing for the Pet Partners category of the Beyond Limits Awards. It’s presented by The Delta Society, the international organization that registers professionally trained therapy teams. The winner is chosen by popular vote on the Society’s website. There’s a video on the website of Nena and Ellie in action at UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Center (it’s the last one). So go, check it out and vote once a week through Feb. 7 (with one vote per ISP) and then tell your firends.
