Fresh Air Fund
: The Fresh Air Fund is looking for runners and sponsors to join the Fresh Air Fund-Racers team for the NYC Half-Marathon this coming March 21st. This is a great way to participate in NYC's premier summer road race while helping Fresh Air Fund children. Over the last year, support from friends helped the Fund give nearly 10,000 inner-city children country experiences that they're still talking about! They rely on donations this time of year to keep programs strong for the summer months. Get all the information here.

Las Vegas and Steffi Graf: Here's some information about a new contest from a press release that I received:

Sounds easy enough to enter. I think I'll give it a try! yeah, I had to smile at the option to mail in your entry. Who would do that when there's an online entry form?

I know, right!? I left it in since it was too funny to edit out. I didn't realize that entries like that still happened but I guess they want to make sure they have all of their bases covered!
