LAS CRUCES – Either Camino Real Middle School Principal Angie

Kingery or James Mulhauser will take a pie in the face to help raise
money for the Las Cruces campaign to cure juvenile diabetes.
Each grade level at CRMS will compete October 9-12, 2007 to
see which one brings in the most money for the campaign. The students in that grade level “will
get to vote on which administrator will take a pie in the face at our next pep assembly,” said
CRMS Special Education teacher Brian Kord.
The pie-in-the-face campaign leads into the fourth
annual Walk to Cure Diabetes, which will be held beginning at
9:00 a.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.) on Saturday,
October 13 at Sonoma Ranch Golf Course in Las Cruces.
The 2004 and 2005 walks raised about $11,000 total,
with more than 300 walkers participating. The 2006 walk Will She Get a Pie in the Face?
