We did it!! Last night, my parents sent us one last generous donation which pushed us across the finish line to $5,005!

And then at 10:30 pm another donation came in!

So, our grand total for the Team Challenge season is $5,015!!

I can’t believe it. Especially when you consider the fact that 2 weeks ago we were hovering around $3,000. Between happy hour, dyeing Kevin’s mustache, bowling, and an incredible response rate to my last rounds of reminder emails we’re here!!


When we started down this path in February, Kevin and I said to each other “Well, we’ll just do it until recommitment and see how we feel. If we’re done or almost done fundraising by then, we’ll keep going.”

But it was obvious by the end of our first training that we were in this for the long haul, no matter what. We’d found a great new group of friends and everyone supports each other’s fundraisers. Plus, the running has been just amazing, I feel so healthy.

So when recommitment came around and we were only halfway to our goal, we signed our forms (complete with release to charge our credit card if we didn’t make it to our fundraising goal) the minute they arrived.

We’re so happy we did.

With the fundraising complete and the race just around the corner, it’s time to just rest and say THANK YOU. We’re so ready to go!



PS: If you would still like to donate, you may do so on our fundraising page until July:
