It's official

I raised $2000. I feel awesome.
I feel amazing since I have so many generous, gracious people in my life. I am so blessed to have the friends/family that I do. I am at a loss for words.
I mean, I didn't actually have to do any of the group fundraising. They have some pretty interesting events, set up, but I wasn't forced to sponge off of my friends more, since they all willingly, supported me and this cause. I feel excellent.
I am doing a fundraiser, on Saturday, to help one of my teammates. We are pouring beer at a Harley Davidson event in Lakewood. It should be interesting.
The Goddess has to raise $4300 which is double my amount. I am donating my tips, from our group fundraiser to her. Also, if you were planning on donating to my cause/effort, I will be giving those funds to her to help her meet her goal.
Gadget also needs some assistance and so I donated an item to a Silent Auction event that I am not going to attend, but the item should bring in some serious cash. My friend, Jennifer, works at the Colorado Athletic Clubs and she gave me a month membership to their facilities as an item. I am hoping that it enables Gadget some financial relief. It is stressful to train and know that you must raise a set amount of money or you are responsible for it.
I believe that giving back to the community aids us all. It feels great to give back.
With the way things currently are in the world, I know that I am fortunate in my life. I have shelter. I have travel plans. I have an amazing support system, so apparent in this running venture.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.....
