Halloween Skating Fun with Kurt Browning

Happy Halloween! Here is a video of four-time world champion Kurt Browning to get you in the Halloween spirit. 🙂

Also, my sister, Christina, and wife, Chea, are participating in a breast cancer fundraiser this Sunday, November 4th. It’s the 2012 San Diego Race for the Cure at Balboa Park! They chose to do this Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in honor of Grandma Judy, a breast cancer survivor.

Christina and Chea are taking donations at their team page: The Fabulous Chitwood Ladies Team.

Making a Difference – Heroes with a Heart 2012

Heroes with a Heart 2012

Help a Child. Change a life. Build a Future.

The Salvation Army Kroc Center in San Diego is in the middle of its very special annual fundraising campaign called “Heroes with a Heart.” We’re hoping to raise $75,000 to provide financial assistance to children, families, and seniors so they can participate in Kroc Center programs and services they could not otherwise afford.

Here’s my list of top 10 ways to perform for breast cancer awareness:

Making a Difference – Heroes with a Heart

Heroes with a HeartGiving is such a special part of life. It helps others and is self-rewarding as well. I’ve been thinking a lot about giving this month as the Salvation Army Kroc Center in San Diego has a very special fundraising campaign right now called “Heroes with a Heart.”

The Kroc Center has a goal of raising $70,000 in scholarships by the end of next week. The scholarships will only be used to help underprivileged individuals of all ages participate in Kroc Center events and classes.
