This Valentine’s Day is three times as special for me because today happens to be National Donor Day and today is also my birthday! I am so excited to celebrate with my friends and family later today. This year, they’ve surprised me by making contributions to my 5K team in lieu of birthday gifts! BTW…my team name is NJ Sharing Network, in case you’d like to join our team or contribute to my personal fundraising page! 🙂 I can’t think of a better birthday gift or way to celebrate National Donor Day! I also think this is a wonderful idea for those of you who are looking for fun and creative ways to raise money for your teams. For more fun ideas, make sure you check back often! If you haven’t registered, what are you waiting for?? Go to 5K.NJSharing Network.org today!
Heart-healthy tip of the day: I LOVE birthday cake, but cake is not good for my heart (or my hips) so do as I did and “bypass” that sugary snack and grab some fresh fruit instead! But if you simply can’t resist that yummy dessert, cut the piece into thirds and share it with your friends!
