I am going to be walking in the American Diabetes Association Walk in St. Louis, Missouri on May 13th.

I have started a team in honor and memory of my mother - Ellen. My personal goal is to raise $300+ with a team goal of $1000+. The team name is Ellen's Earth Angels.

Do not think that all I want is money to help me meet my goal, I just want everyone to be aware of what I will be doing in just a few months' time. If you would like to donate, there is a link below. If you are in the metro St. Louis area and would like to join Ellen's Earth Angels, there is a link below.

Thank you all so much (and in advance) for all of your thoughts, prayers and donations (if possible).

For God so loVed the world
That He gAve

That whosoever
Believeth In Him
Should Not perish
But have Everlasting life."
