Only one day left!

The 5K is on Saturday, and I am completely beside myself over how much money we raised in such a short amount of time.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  When I set a goal of $10,000 I never imagined we would reach it, but I threw it out there because - why not aim big? 

Well, we are less than $450 away from achieving that goal!  I am utterly floored.  I understand that Lou and I do a lot of fundraising for the cause on different levels and times are tough for so many.  I just want to make it clear that we have zero expectations, and we are always overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of others.  If you made a donation - thank you.  If you joined our team as a runner - wow - thank you.  And if you are unable to give, please know that you have already given so much just for keeping Ty in your thoughts and prayers and following him on this journey.  We are forever grateful to each and every one of you, for all that you do for us in so many ways.

How could this have happened to something so perfect?

We'll never know.  But there is amazing research being done, and breakthroughs on the horizon that can help cure Ty and prevent this from happening to others. Thank you for helping us achieve that.  We believe in what they are doing at The Children's Brain Tumor Project (Weill Cornell), and we are thrilled that Ty will be an ambassador at this event.

To help us reach our goal for the upcoming 5K:
  • Visit http://www.braintumorevents.org/newyorkcity2012
  • On the upper left hand side, there is a red button that reads Donate to Participant. Click it.
  • Enter "Cindy Campbell" in the search fields (or any of our team members)
  • Click on name when it appears (I am listed under Pawling, NY)
  • When an individual's page comes up, you will see a button on the upper right hand side that reads "Give Now". Click it and follow the prompts from there
  • If you don't wish to donate online, there will be a link to print out a form as well.
Please share :)
