Raise your inhalers high!

Folks,
In just two short weeks Hyla and I will climb to the top of the Bank of America building to raise money for the American Lung Association.  That’s 1,197 stairs!!
We want to thank everyone who took the time to donate. Your contributions towards eradicating lung ailments are greatly appreciated. As an asthma sufferer myself, I thank you personally.
For those of you who haven’t yet had the opportunity to log onto our team page, we still need your help to reach our goals.
There are two ways:
1—Donate.
You can make a contribution to either (or both) of our buckets.

2 – Join Team Aloha
Climbing 52 flights of stairs isn’t as difficult as it sounds. Last year I did it in 27 minutes, 10 seconds. Just one foot after the other. If you can walk 3 miles you can do this climb. I stress again, it really isn’t as hard as it sounds. You’ll be well taken care of. Paramedics and water station are on every other floor. And, if you feel like you can’t finish the climb, you’ll be escorted to the 52nd floor by a handsome paramedic.
By joining Team Aloha, you’ll have to raise $100 just like any other climber and you’ll get a swell t-shirt from the nice folks at Fight for Air. You’ll also be treated to a buffet of carbs on the 52nd floor of the BofA building in what used to be the Carnelian Room. Great views, carbs, mimosas …
Thanks for reading. Thanks for donating. Thanks for joining Team Aloha.
With my rescue inhaler at the ready,
Andrea

Nice Pictures - Where'd you steal them from?

Some of the pictures in my blog were taken by a photographer called Julie Michele. Some of the pictures were either taken by me or someone I know. Some of the pictures were ripped right from the internet, mostly from google image searches from photographers to whom I may or may not give credit.

Rest assured I make no money from any of it.
