Can Do

The Can Do 4:13 Scholarship Fund is dedicated to providing $1,000 scholarships to the 2002-2003, 2003-2004, and the current 2004-2005 fourth grade classes at Peoria, IL's Irving Primary School. The "Can Do Kids" have been challenged to graduate from high school. They will receive the $1,000 Can Do 4:13 Scholarship once they enroll at an accredited post secondary education institution. Examples of those institutions might include a university, college, technical training school, junior or business college, or even cosmetology school.

As some of you know, I do some volunteer publicity work for the Can Do 4:13. Our big event for the year is next Saturday, so if you're looking for a good cause, and/or a reason to go for a scenic walk on the 27th... join us at Tower Park in Peoria Heights next week at 9AM. The walk will take place along Grandview Drive.

Thanks to Kevin Harlan, Brent Lonteen, Krystal Morris, Kirby Matthews and everyone at WMBD for stepping up and sponsoring the event. These are some really great kids and they got a chance to be part of a promo you may have seen recently (and got a tour of the station afterwards). Thanks also to Jim McComb Chevrolet for giving the kids chance to be on live this morning and used some of their morning Sell Down Saturday segment on WEEK to give the walk a free plug.
