The Walk…

I know this isn’t technology based, but it is worthy of exposure.  My girlfriend’s father is planning on walking the Natchez Trace in May to bring awareness to Parkinson’s disease.  Mr. Ruffin was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2001, and instead of being a slave to the disease, he has decided to take it “head-on.”  On May 13, he is going to walk the Natchez Trace Parkway from the Mississippi/Alabama border and arrive 21 days later in Natchez, Mississippi.

If you would like to donate to this cause, visit http://www.thomasruffinonline.com/ .

I commend Mr. Ruffin on this endeavor, and wish him and those involved the best! Now, get off your ass and donate!
