Running for St. Jude's :: THANK YOU!

SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2012

On June 17th (tomorrow), I am running my first race via the Warrior Dash. When I signed up, there was an option to run as a "St. Jude Warrior" by raising $250 for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

I made a series of 4 videos, with the first one requesting this initial goal of $250. Thanks to those with generous hearts, this goal was complet

ed in ONE DAY! This was about a month ago, and over the course of the month, I kept bumping up the goal, and finally ended at $1,000. As of this past week, that goal was not only completed, but SURPASSED.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to all who donated. You have made this experience EPIC for me. In order in which the donations were received, thank you to:

This blog is dedicated to ALL of you. THANK YOU!!!! I have never raised money for an organization before, and it feels so good to have success, and to know that people like you are out there. I am motivated to do it again in the future, and I hope I can bring in success again with the help of people like you.

THANK YOU.

Here is a playlist of my 4 Facebook videos, and 2 "payback" videos:
