Will Smith (Agent J)

Tommy Lee Jones (Agent K)

Josh Brolin (Young Agent K)

Michael Stuhlbarg (Griffin)

What’s it about?

Veteran Agent J must travel back in time

to MIB’s early years in 1969, to stop an

alien criminal from assassinating the young

Agent K, altering the timeline, changing

history and putting the Earth in danger.

What did we like?

We liked that most of the movie was set

in the 1960’s and that the costumes and

sets really reflected that time period. We

thought the movie was very funny and had

a lot of action. We liked the young Agent K

and other new characters. The movie had

awesome special effects.

What didn’t we like?

We didn’t like that Tommy Lee Jones

wasn’t in most of the movie and that there

were characters from the first 2 movies

that weren’t in this one. We also felt that

the plot was a little confusing at times and

that some of the aliens were too ugly and

scary to be in a comedy.

SEE IT or SKIP IT?

See it!

Issue #3 – Fun, Fit, Fundraising

Walk-a-Thons Can Help Any Cause

Many non-profits and charitable organizations use fundraising events to raise money for their cause. One of the most common types of fundraiser is a “Walk-a-Thon”.  A walk-a-thon is a walking marathon or sponsored walk in which participants raise money by collecting donations or pledges for walking a predetermined distance or course.

Walk-a-thons are a good type of fundraiser because they encourage people to get active, and you don’t need to be a professional athlete to participate in a one. They are a great opportunity to meet new people, get some fresh air, and see your community from a new perspective.  Because you get people to sponsor you to help you reach your personal fundraising goal, you are often not required to pay a fee to participate, or sell anything.

Walk-a-thons are not the only type of active fundraising organizations do.  There are many different types of “a-thons”. There are skate-a-thons, where participants pledge for the number of laps skated. There are bowl-a-thons, where they raise funds and bowl a set number of games. Other types of “a-thons” include activities such as biking, swimming, working, reading, rocking, and dancing.

Some popular national organizations that use this type of fundraising are the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s “Race for the Cure”, the March of Dimes, The American Heart Association, and The American Lung Association. Some annual Las Vegas events include the Easter Seals Walk-a-Thon, AIDSwalk, and the Humane Society’s “Wag-A-Tail-Walk-A-Thon”.

Over the years, walk-a-thons have supported many great causes, and have expanded around the world.  If you want to support a good cause (or have one of your own!) and meet new people, lace up those shoes and hit the road!
