Challenged Athletes Fundraiser for my 51st!

Here is my page from last year's fundraiser.

The link has been changed to my current donation page. If you would like to donate an incentive prize, let me know! Thank you for your support! Once I get my prizes in order, I will post a new page with all the details. Anyone who donates $50 or more will get one entry to this years giveaway for each $50 donation, so donate now please! 

July 17th's my 51st birthday. 

To celebrate, I am once again raising money for my favorite charity, Challenged Athletes Foundation!

CAF does so much good for so many. Be sure to visit their web site
Challenged Athletes Foundation to learn more.

You can join my fundraiser by using this link to my donation page. Last year I raised over $3,300 and this year I want to reach my goal of $5,100. I need your help! Please forward this link to friends and family. CAF helps all including veterans and kids.

$10 is all it takes. Of course, larger donations are even better!  Donate $50 or more to be eligible for valuable prizes! 

Thru the month of July, $1 of every $3 download on my 500px gallery will go to CAF.
