It's Friday and there's still much to do.  Today we had a photo opportunity with Rupert, America's
favorite Survivor.  Winning $1 million as survivor of Season Three Survivor Guatemala, Rupert has
carried on with his charity, Rupert's Kids, a non-profit organization.  Ruper'ts Kids is dedicated to
giving wayward kids another chance by empowering
youth to discover their inner strengths, realize their
own self worth and their value to society.  
The program is designed to teach valuable job skills
and instill a sense of confidence and self worth that
will lead each of the members of Rupert's Kids towards stable housing, employment and relationships
which, in turn, will help them become independent contributing members of their communities.  Check
out the program at

Some crazy events took place today, including the nude bike slalom race.  A man and woman au
natural competed in a slalom course with proceeds going to a local charity.  Though we cannot
publish these pictures, it was part of the Buffalo Chip Sturgis experience.

It is near the end of our Buffalo Chip week.  We are ending on a high note with Mike Bridge of Rapid
City making the biggest donation to date of $20.00  Thank you, Mike.  Your contribution is going to
help find a cure for scleroderma and help The LiveStrong Program reach more cancer survivors.

Saturday will be our last full day.  We head back to California early Sunday morning, possibly stopping
back in Las Vegas to spend more time with our new friend, Sheila Gray and her husband.

In the meantime, check out the fun sights at The Chip on Friday and friends whose donations make
this fund raising effort possible.
