Hi everyone!  For our Change the World project at CBMS this year, we will be supporting and working with the Alzheimer's Association. Our first monthly project  we will be participating in a 2 mile walk fundraiser in Shelburne, VT. If you would like to support and possibly contribute to my fund raising efforts please click the link below. No amount is too small, and we greatly appreciate any donation.  Click Here to Donate!  Thank you very much - we appreciate your support.  Sam Widschwenter, Julia Robinson, and Wyatt Cunningham
