I hope you will take this opportunity to visit my personal fundraising page to donate directly to me or visit the 3-Day website to learn more about the event. I encourage you to donate an amount that is personal to you – $10 for every family member you need to protect, $60 is $1 per mile I’ll walk, $63 to represent for your AMG, $125 years since Mercedes-Benz invented the automobile, $382 hp in your E550…or upgrade to $402 hp for 2012! Every dollar is appreciated!
