I know that we’re all concerned about the hurricane victims, and many of us want to do what we can to help. But there’s another group that needs help, too (isn’t there always?) and I’m hoping that you can set aside some to help them out.

The 15th Annual CHOC/Disneyland Resort Walk in the Parkis coming Sunday, October 2. I will be one of over 12,000 men, women, and children of all ages joining together to support Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and CHOC at Mission. Last year, with the help of teams, individual participants, sponsors and hundreds of volunteers, the CHOC Walk raised over $1 million to support patient care. This year, the goal is to raise even more!

Since 1964, CHOC has provided world-class medical care to children and families in Orange County and beyond. Quality medical services are available to all children, regardless of their family's ability to pay and over the last 14 years, the CHOC Walk has raised $6.5 million to help support this important medical care.

If you'd like to be involved but don't want to/can't walk, maybe you could sponsor me. To do so, go to https://secure.gotech.net/clients/ch...rForm&ID=10582. My walker ID is Belgarion42.

Thank you for your consideration and I hope you will join me as I help CHOC again raise $1 million for the children of Orange County and beyond.
