We did it! With 33 sponsors and in just 20 days, we raised $2,414 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation! I can't thank you enough for your generosity and encouragement as I have been training and fundraising for this big event — the Susan G. Komen 3-Day — in which I will walk 60 miles in three days. Thank you for your support!
I'm also excited and honored to announce that the San-Diego-based team I joined on this adventure — TEAM: Powered By Optimism — has eclipsed the $250,000 mark in our fundraising efforts. QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS, y'all! If you donated to my campaign, then YOU personally helped make this happen. We appreciate you!
I leave Alaska this Thursday for San Diego, and Friday is when things get really serious — and fun. Quite possibly, this will be one of the most physically demanding things I've ever done — but it will be worth it. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
