I can’t believe it is November 1st!! I have completed 262.6 miles of this thing!! WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!! I am starting to plan the FINISH LINE PARTY!!!! SOOOO exciting!! I was in the pool this morning after having been sick the past 5 days (ugh) and started to freak out that no one will show up. 🙁 Geesh, I hope I am SO WRONG about that. Then I started to think, “well, I am doing this for myself and for Katie, in addition to the fundraising”. It has been an incredible journey. My hope is to get over the $10,000 goal, and to make a significant impact on the schools, but that is completely out of my control. Like so many things in life, I can only control the things that I can. And at this point, that is to KEEP SWIMMING, get the word out, plan a great party and HOPE that people show up!! I have contacted the media, and started to collect donations. I’m staying healthy and putting the miles in. The rest is up to my “peeps”: YOU!!!!!
We have the details now on the party! Saturday, December 15th at Saloon on Calhoun (17000 W Capitol Dr, Brookfield). 12-3pm. We will be serving a pizza lunch with soda, covered by a $10 at the door donation for adults, $5 for kids 13-18, under 12 free. Cash bar available!! 🙂
We will have great silent auction prizes including a 50/50 raffle up to $500!! I will be putting the flyer out tomorrow and doing a mailing early next week, once I get the website for donations and registration from Waukesha County Community Foundation.
Mark your calendars, my friends. I need you THERE!! Thanks for sharing this amazing journey with me!!!
