    I am extending an invitation to anyone in the Southern California area to participate in the FORREST GUMP 5K FUN RUN/WALK throughout the Paramount lot on Sunday, August 26. Runners can run it, walkers can walk it. It's followed by a ping pong party and all-you-can-eat shrimp brunch provided by the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. All proceeds go to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and AIDS, as you know, is back on everybody's mind as the scourge that didn't really go away but is getting worse. If you are interested, check out their website at www.pedaids.org which has all the information, or go there via the link on the paramount.com home page.

    Martin,
    I would love to participate but I live waaaaaay on the other side of the US. Even if it was not something I would have normally supported I would do it because you asked. You have supported us here so it's only fair we support something you like. How about a donation?

    Ah, shucks, I thought this was going to be an invitation to an early screening of the Gump DVD. Oh well, I don't live in California anyway [​IMG]. By the way, Mr. Blythe, I'm on to your little game with releasing your big titles at the end of August! I'll expect Indy in August 2002 [​IMG].

    Martin,
    E-mail me and I'll send a donation.
    This is an issue that is very important to me, because I have a couple of friends (adults) who are HIV-positive.
    Thank you for your support. [​IMG]

    I kind of live in England, but If I was in that area I would be there no doubt.
    This is a great invitation and I hope that it raises alot of money, so all the people who unfortunately have AIDS can some how get better.
    Regards,
    Ricky

    Living in Kentucky, I also won't be able to make the trip. Sounds like it'll be fun though. Best of luck, Martin.

    Martin,
    I wish I lived in California. This is a GREAT event. I can't think of a better way to launch a title - I am really proud of Paramount, and yourself, for this event.
    Good luck. I really appreciate your efforts for such a necessary cause.
    Thank you.
    Now I'll have to get 2 copies and give one as a gift.

    Thanks for the comments. This was something we wanted to do for a cause - it's that kind of movie. If you do want to make a donation (tax-deductable), go to the Pediatric AIDS website posted above for information on how to do it. It's 100% to them, not us. Kind regards.
