On 5/24 Jim Casha began walking from Lansing, MI to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. The money raised will help pay for some of his expenses as he makes his walk (i.e. food, lodging during inclement weather, a new pair of boots, socks, a bus ticket back from D.C., money to give to his family while he is off on this walk, and other trip expenses).
Jim explains why he is doing this: "...If I can walk 685 miles to D.C. from Lansing, MI in 40 days, they (Congress) should be able to pass this bill (S.237) by the time I get there - July 2nd, 2013 - INTERdependence Day...This bill keeps 'dying' in committee and our kids keep dying as a result. Fetal alcohol exposure has been 'linked' to many mass school shootings...We need to get as many people as we can to call their U.S. Senators and get them to support this bill. They can sign up as co-sponsors (there are only three so far)... We also need to get the Senate Health Committee Chair, Sen. Tom Harkin D-IA, to pass this out of his committee. Perhaps phone calls and emails to his office will bring this to his attention."
Contact your Senator and tell him or her to support S.237! For more information on this bill visit: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:SN00237:
