The next anybody heard from her, this genteel, farm-reared, sixty-seven-year-old great-grandmother had walked 800 miles along the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail. By September 1955 she stood atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin. The public attention she brought to the trail was unprecedented and very likely saved the trail from extinction.

When Todd McCray, a developmentally challenged young man still living on his parents' Kansas farm, hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading to Christmas, he knows exactly what he wants for the holidays. His father objects, but Todd's persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.
But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the 'Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.' What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men - and animals.

A lifestyle coach, specially trained to lead the program, to help you learn new skills, encourage you to set and meet goals, and keep you motivated. You will learn to eat better without having to give up the foods you love and add physical activity such as taking a walk to your weekly schedule. The coach will also facilitate discussions and help make the program fun and engaging. A support group of people with similar goals and challenges. Together, you can share ideas, celebrate successes, and work to overcome obstacles. In some programs, the participants stay in touch with each other during the week. It may be easier to make changes when you’re working as a group than doing it on your own.

To be eligible for the Diabetes Prevention Program, there is some eligibility criteria. Someone could be either diagnosed with prediabetes from their provider or they can take a “self-assessment” quiz. The quiz is really easy. For your online registration form, could you reference the online quiz from the CDCs website? The language to reference it can say: “Find out if you are at risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Take the online quiz: https://www.cdc.gov/widgets/Prediabetes/html5/iframe.html. If you score a 5 or higher, please contact Catie Wampole at 240-362-7715
