    You all may have seen us running around the neighborhood these last few months...or on some days, dying around the neighborhood ;) We're training for the AIDS Honolulu marathon that will take place on Dec. 12.

    We're currently accepting donations towards the Whitman Walker Clinic (http://www.aidsmarathon.com/participant.asp?runner=DC-8075&Year=2004&EventCode=HN04). Believe it or not - 1 in 20 has HIV in the DC area. This number astounded us! Additionally, 1 person under the age of 25 is infected with HIV every 30 minutes - in the US. It is now the leading worldwide cause of death for people aged 15-59.

    So if you're looking for an end of the year tax deduction, and want to support a worthy cause in the meantime, please consider http://www.aidsmarathon.com/participant.asp?runner=DC-8075&Year=2004&EventCode=HN04. We appreciate your support!

    Also, we'll likely be having a happy hour at the Broadlands Pub here in the near future. We'll let everyone know!

    Thanks for your attention, and support.

    Christina and Rob

    From the looks of the webpage, if you raise $3400 they'll fly you out and pay for your hotel. I think I'd rather donate my money to a cause where 100% of the donation goes to the charity, not to fly people to Hawaii in the middle of December. :(

    Actually, we ended up not flying to Hawaii for several reasons (expense being a big one!). BUT we did complete the marathon in Ashburn last Sunday - the 12th. Perhaps you saw us running laps around the neighborhood. We were grateful it wasn't super cold or raining/snowing. :)
