One of the proudest things I do for my International Rotary Chapter is serve on the Alexa Dyer Life Challenge Award Committee. Through this committee we provide funds for families who are losing their child through cancer.

It might be helping with their electric bill, mortage or helping to provide transportation to a distant city for additional treatment. In any case, the family has been stretch to it's financial limit. We provide funds to make this time somewhat easier -- though one cannot really put herself in their shoes unless you have lost a child this way.

We have come up with a win win win situation. One registers and lists how much weight she/he wants to lose and then sends the notice to friends and ask them to sponsor them in their weight lost program by making a pledge to the Alexa Dyer Foundation. One can register now, yet the actual challenge does not start until January 15, 2006.

All of it can be done on line. Pledges are 100 percent tax deductible.
