making progress

Why has it been so long since I've written? I remain enthusiastic about the 3-Day Walk, and continue to spread the word. Other things in my life, however, have been dampening my spirit in general. I have some great news on the fundraising front, but was hoping to be able to announce it in an appropriately positive and excited post. Now I see that's not going to happen any time soon.

So..... I've raised $1,235!!! That's over 50% of the minimum!! Yippeeeeee!!

* I still wear my button every day. Recently it started a conversation that got me a $150 donation
* Still trying to work out some fundraising other than asking for donations. Girl's night out, canning, bake sale.... something!
* Sent out a newsletter type email, updating friends and family on my training and fundraising. This got me two new donations, and responses from a few people I hadn't heard from before.

Through everything else that's going on in my life, working towards a cure is one thing that is still bringing me hope. I am thankful for everyone's kindness and support.

Walk on!
