Mile Marker: $15.00 Amazon.com Card Giveaway!

NOTE:  All four Amazon gift cards have been claimed!  I hope you'll sign up for the Inaugural Virtual Challenge anyway.  Keep watching for the next giveaway designed to increase awareness of and STOP diabetes!
It's time for the first of several giveaways designed to STOP diabetes! 

One simple way to prevent the onset of type II diabetes is to get more exercise. And, this inaugural "virtual challenge" is a great opportunity to get started with that goal!  All you have to do is go to the site and register to participate. Then run or walk, alone or with a group, anytime between June 21 and June 24, 2013. The cost is $10, plus a $3.25 processing fee, for a total of $13.25.  You'll receive a T-shirt and a medal, along with the satisfaction that comes with reaching a goal.  The registration deadline is growing short, so hurry!

But, how would you also like a chance to receive one of four $15.00 amazon.com gift cards?  That means you'll be totally reimbursed for the cost of registration, plus $1.75! That's right -- it's so important to me that you get out and WALK to prevent diabetes, I'll pay four people to do it!

 Follow these directions carefully. 
  • Email me at casmarsh56@aol.com with a brief, positive comment about a person you know who has diabetes (first names only, please).  In return, I'll email you with my fax number and a special identifier to write on your registration receipt.
  • Click here and register via Active.com for the Inaugural Virtual Challenge.
  • Print out a copy of your Registration Receipt, write the special identifier on it, and fax it to me.  (Feel free to block out any other identifying information on the receipt.  I just need to know you've registered.)
The first four people who complete the directions will receive a $15.00 gift card via email to spend at amazon.com!

My diabetes and I already have registered.  What's stopping YOU?

Here's to the next mile!
