Asking for an Electronic "Like"

I have a real friend to an electronic/virtual one who, several years ago, suffered a stroke.  With a great a great medical team (thank you Adventist), modern rehab facilities, dedication and a positive attitude - tomorrow she celebrates a near recovery by participating in the American Heart Associations "Heart and Stroke Walk".  Joining her will be friends like me who will walk the 1 mile survivor route - there is also a 5K for those who are inclined.
Bess needs your help

Of course, there is a fundraising component to this event but the goal is "heart health".  She and I are having a little contest and right now she is ahead in the money raising department so here is my challenge to you.  This article will be posted on the Gresham Ford Facebook page and for each of you that hit the "like" button, we will donate $1 for the first 250 "likes" for this great health cause.  My friend has already raised over $100 because she has asked her real friends to each give her $1.  She is really a lovely lady with lots of real friends - so help me out here - Please be my electronic friend and hit the like button so I can show her I have friends too!

Better yet, if you would like to walk - just show up Saturday May 17th at 8:30am at the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade in Portland and walk with us.  Go to for more information.  Funds raised from the event will go to health related causes sponsored by the American Heart Association.  Thank you  for all your help.
