“MMMOVE” My Motivation Movement (MMMOVE) - It's about helping people connect with others in the Community, find joy in Fitness, and improve their Health. 3 Miles • You vs. You • Free. This is an event you won't want to miss. With live music, food and activities, there really is something for everyone. You can walk, jog, run, or be a cheerleader! It's not a race; you compete against a goal you set for yourself at registration. Join us on June 1, 2013 on the Roanoke River Greenway.

The GILES COUNTY AUTISM FOCUS GROUP (GCAFG) is hosting the film screening of The Story of Luke.  It will be held at the Carmike 10 - Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke on June 5 at 7:30pm.  The film is about a young man with Autism who must survive in the world on his own.  This is the first time this movie will be shown on the big screen in Southwest Virginia.  The film is rated PG so children may attend.
We must sell 84 tickets in order to have this event and to receive any donations that are made.  Please share this email and invite your friends! Make sure to reserve your tickets by May 29.  Tickets are $12, which goes to the theatre and the company who has the rights to show the film.  When you reserve your tickets you will be given an option to make a donation to our group.  A donation is not required to attend the event. A member of the GCAFG will introduce the film.  After the movie has finished, a representative from the Virginia Tech Autism Clinic or Virginia Tech Center for Autism Research will speak briefly.
