Running for a cause

The fabulous and inspiring Amber over at Amber Alert is running her second half-marathon June 28 and since it is a charity run, she is seeking sponsors. All donations to Amber will go to Canada's Heart and Stroke Foundation. To read her personal reasons for why she chose this organization, click here.

Even if you don't live in Canada, this is a great cause to support. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in North America, a fact many are unaware of, and cardiac care is something that my sorority has long been a champion for (as I wrote about in this post).

Any donation, big or small, is appreciated. Amber already blew past her first goal of $500 and now she is aiming for $2,000. To donate to help her reach her goal, click here.

Thanks Amber for being a great example of living healthy and giving back!
