    BBO Family, I need your help.

    As some of you know, LDS and I volunteer with a couple of organizations here in Nashville, TNABA (TN Association of Blind Athletes) and Achilles International - Nashville. Two of the visually impaired athletes in these organizations have chosen to run the NY Marathon this year. LDS and I want to help them make that happen, by raising travel funds for them and their guides.
    If you all can help me raise $1000 in the next week LDS has promised to run a local 5K (Firecracker 5000) on the 4th of July in a red, white and blue tutu. You know you want to help me make this happen. In the interest of full dis-closer, one of the athletes is my future son-in-law, Ricky Jones. He has promised to run the Firecracker 5000 in a pink tutu if we meet our goal.

    Your donation is tax deductible as Achilles International and TNABA are both 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations.
    Here is the link if you want to help

    Will the tutu be the entirety of his outfit? How different is this from his everyday attire?

    I would ride down and run it with you LDS but I have a run scheduled for the 4th already. I will just have to wait for the pics.

    There will be pictures and they will be posted.
    I can't guarantee that the tutu will be the entire outfit. There will be a t-shirt involved as well, we don't want him to get sunburned...

    oh, and shoes, can't forget the shoes.


    Thanks to those that have donated! We have a start!

    Shoes, yes. T-shirt? Super-duper sunblock. Okay, okay . . . a wife-beater, then. But it has to match. Also, a ladies' style floppy straw hat, FTW.
