I spent the past few days in Charlotte for an MDA Regional Meeting... phew, amazing how exhausting just sitting in a conference room can be. Amid all the work talk, we did find time for some fun. Our Regional Director is being promoted – and we sent him off in Roast fashion. I opted to say farewell in a self written rap song. Many others took a turn frying him up.
But, I must say the best part of the night was having Luke Christie (14 yrs old and a National MDA spokesperson – from Due West, SC) there to share his own stories. Luke, as always, it was an honor to have you in attendance! You are a true inspiration… and a daily source of motivation while I’m at work. I’m crossing off days on my calendar, just waiting for MDA Summer Camp! Start getting your office supplies list together; I’ve got the stapler ready and waiting ;) [Luke has decided to hire me for the week of camp. Each day, he publishes a Camp Newsletter. This year, I am the Assistant Editor. My salary = M&M’s] Which reminds me: Hey Luke – Start a Blog!
Here is my friend Luke with his friend Jerry Lewis
And remember, you can help send kids like Luke to our camp! Sign up to run or walk the MDA Stride & Ride 5K.
