Will you support me?

The past year has been a very challenging year, but it has also produced a lot of growth in my life. It seems that new successes are popping up in areas regularly, and I’m always looking for ways to celebrate them.

In that spirit, I have decided to participate in the ACB Walk-a-thon. This is something I could not have even considered a year ago, but my new crutch and some hard work to build stamina has helped enough that I know I’ll be able to do this. It’s truly a joy to think that I’ve come this far in my recovery.

I’m also excited because this allows me to support an organization which has supported me, the American Council of the Blind. For those who are not familiar with the organization, ACB is one of the largest consumer organizations in America. They provide advocacy, information through online radio and the magazine The Braille Forum, fellowship and chances to talk with other people who are blind and opportunities to join affiliates based on location or common interest.

I’ve been a member of ACB for 7 years and I’m glad to say that I’ve benefited greatly, now it’s time to give back. I know that for many, money is especially tight right now, but I hope you’ll consider supporting me in the walk-a-thon. You’ll be giving to a great organization and your support means so much to me.

You’ll need my name, Nickie Coby, to fill in the pledge form.

Thank you for your support, whether it is moral or monetary.
