5:00 PM: I have a neat thing to tell you about. A few months ago, my company (RTI International) sent out a notice requesting nominations for community organizations for RTI to support through a donation. I submitted the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Then in December, I got a notice saying that RTI planned to donate $1,100 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and it turned out that another RTI employee (her name is KC Collier) had also nominated the LLS and was planning to participate in a "Team in Training" event to raise additional money for the organization. I didn't know KC, so we decided to meet and get to know each other better. After we talked, KC asked me if she could dedicate her next event (a triathlon) in Sophie's honor. I was thrilled! She has set a fund-raising goal of $2,000 for this event (and will apply the RTI donation to it). If you would be willing to make a donation in Sophie's honor and support KC's fund-raising efforts, please visit her Team in Training web site (http://www.active.com/donations/fundraise_public.cfm?key=tntencKCollie).
