SING ME TO SLEEP READERS take GREAT STRIDES!!

The contest prizes are all in the mail!!! YAY! Oh, man, that was a lot of prizes. Fun to hear from so many of you, though. Now I can focus 100% on revising CAYMAN SUMMER. I hope to post revised chapters next week. It's taken some time to get my head in the right place to revise. I needed to slowly reread TAKEN BY STORM and UNBROKEN CONNECTION. And think a lot. I'm to the point now, though, that I have to crank up my TAKEN BY STORM play list and get to work!

But today, I'm excited to announce a new project that means a lot to me and I hope all of my readers.

I'm thrilled to invite you, my wonderful readers, to join with me to honor and remember Derek, SING METO SLEEP's fictional hero, and Matt, my true life inspiration through GREAT STRIDES.

GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event. I would love to have SING ME TO SLEEP readers join me in supporting this remarkable effort.

This year, I'm walking in Salt Lake City's walk on May 21st. I've registered a SING ME TO SLEEP READERS team. Utah readers can join this team and walk with me at The Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main St., registration opens at 9 AM. It's a 3 miles/5k walk. Easy, right? Join the team or make a donation right now!

I'd like to invite those of you not in Utah to walk as an individual in an event close to home, form a SING ME TO SLEEP READERS team in your own area, or donate to walkers on the team.

To find a walk near you, go to http://www.cff.org/great_strides/

To find a walk in Canada, go to http://www.cysticfibrosis.ca/en/GreatStrides/index.php

We can form a national team if we organize at least two more teams around the country.

Your fundraising efforts and generous gifts will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.

Making a donation is easy and secure! Just visit my GREAT STRIDES page and click the "Click to Donate" button on this page to go to make a donation that will be credited to SING ME TO SLEEP READERS. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later.
