hey there! Just wanted to give a shout out on Charlie Millard's behalf.  He's raised over $1000.00 so far! He is getting up at midnight to start gaming. We've been very busy with travel soccer so haven't been able to attend the meetings.  He just turned 12! Yay. Have fun tomorrow, everyone! xo- Charlie's mom.http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=201534

Well, he's currently number 3 for the team but I'd imagine he'll be leading us in no time!
