I'm writing to you to ask for your support in a very special cause.
This year, I'll be taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes along with a half-million other walkers across the country. Our goal: To raise $105 million to help fund research for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.
Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating, often deadly disease that affects millions of people--a large and growing percentage of them children.
Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure. Aside from the daily challenges of living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe, often fatal, complications caused by the disease.
That's the bad news... and yes, it's pretty bad.
The good news, though, is that a cure for type 1 diabetes is within reach. In fact, JDRF funding and leadership is associated with most major scientific breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes research to date. And JDRF funds a major portion of all type 1 diabetes research worldwide, more than any other charity.
I'm writing to ask for your support because now more than ever, EACH of us can be a part of bringing about a cure. Each of us can make a real difference
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as you're able?
Together, we can make the cure a reality.

And another decision, not as important as if you going to donate but how much, is what should i wear with our team shirt?
Should i go with the air stab, AM light, or 360 neo?
When push comes to shove, being part of a quality team makes up for anything ill fate can throw into the mix. This is evident for this team for this weekend. After the broken down cars, popped vaccuum lines, hotel lobby fights, lost keys, getting lost in canada, being detained in customs on the way in, being detained at customs on the way out, the lack of judging for unfavorable results, and whatever else could have gone wrong would have. NIM kept a strong presence at the show and didn't let these obstacles phase them. Canada got a taste of what a great team is about. Rolling 10 deep including the debut of the wide body white lexus, the NIMTOUR09 crossed the border to make an impact on the show. Quoting the awards MC, 'New Image, you done yet?' NO. there's more to come. Just remember, there's no 'I' in team

Another local show, another strong show. The NIMTOUR09 is taking the last few shows for the season to another level. The F4 challenge recognizes the hard work and dedication that NIM has brought to the field and the industry as a whole. New Image came 11 strong to show what a well built team is all about. Rolling without a few of the NIM heavy hitters is not a problem for this team when the rest of the team can hold the fort down. 2 team awards and 14 individual award is a job well done. Season is coming to an end, and next stop is IMPORTFEST in toronto. Thanks to Etown, D1, Andy and the F4C for another great show.
