So we're coming down to the wire….
I wanted to take time out to thank my team for all of their fundraising efforts, for taking time out of their lives to train for and walk 60-miles, for forking up the costs of travel to Seattle and hotel nights and lastly, for dealing with my nutty ideas on how to raise enough money to hit our fundraising goal.
Angel Djambazov, Jen Fluker, Karen Garcia, Jen Goode, Debby Phillips, Laura Przybek, Adam Riemer, Lisa Riolo, Irene and Tiffany Spaulding — your generosity knows no bounds and you have my undying gratitude.
To the other walkers we've lost along the way, thank you for all of your efforts and we hope to have you join us next year.
I am grateful to our T-shirt sponsors for stepping up with their liberal donations. Here's what Team Affiliate Marketers Worldwide will be sporting during our walk:
Pretty sharp, eh?
I would also like to thank each of the affiliate marketers that purchased an “I Gave Back Button”, made special donations, supplied us with prizes to give away, popped up AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com banners on their sites, blogged about the cause and sent notes of encouragement. I am humbled by the big-heartedness of this industry when it comes to rallying for a cause.
To date, our team has raised $36,163.00 (90% of our goal) for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. That number is just awe-inspiring to me and we still have a couple of weeks to go!
Over the last week, I've had a few people ask me what they can do to help, if anything. Right now, we're pretty much set and simply concentrating on helping a few of the team members hit their ($2,200) minimum goal. So, if you'd like to make a donation, I ask that you select Angel, Karen or Adam, when doing so. Donations can be made online at www.60-milewalk.com and then clicking on the individual's name.
If you're in Seattle and would like to come cheer us on or meet up for dinner, the walk is September 12-14. Shoot me off an email 🙂
One more big round of applause for everyone that has supported us!
Wish us a blister-free 60!
