Amazing Pottery - Incentive Prize

As promised.  I am revealing another amazing raffle item for the Race to Cure Diabetes Virtual 5K (details below).  I received a message a few days ago from one of the most amazing women I know.  Her name is Lorraine Bracher but, to me she will always be, Mrs. B.  I always say her son Scott gave me the most prodigious gift  by introducing me to his family.  He was an amazing human being and the apple clearly didn't fall far from the tree.  Oh yah...back to the message from Mrs B..  Mrs. B. has become an award winning pottery maker in the last few years.  Her pieces are full of color and life.  She has generously offered up a piece of pottery for the 5K.  Whoever can get the most people to register wins this raffle item.  Meaning this is no longer a raffle item but an incentive.  If by June 27th you have gotten the most folks to register you win this prize.  Let me know, in a comment at the bottom of this post. who you are responsible for getting to sign up and the person with the most registrants wins.  I know I am super lucky to have people like this in my life and trust me I am thankful.   





Well we are going strong on registration.  We are nearing 100 registrants but, my goal was 500 so, anything you can do to help spread the word would be much appreciated.  Some folks are having a tough time with the JDRF Registration page.  I posted instructions at the bottom of that page.  You need to hit "Register Now" and then click on the $10 amount.  If for some reason you don't show up on the Registrants List, do not freak out, just let me know and I will add you on.  If you register through the donation side of the page, I can see I got a donation but can't see who sent it.  So just let me know and I will get you on there.  Obviously this being my first year doing this there are some hiccups but we can work them out.  Please help me get to 500 runners/walkers.
