I held my second of probably three 5K races this morning. It was another fundraiser for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the group that my marathon team (Fred’s Team) is raising money for. I had 36 people registered but 5 of the pre-registered’s didn’t show up. I’ll mail them their race t-shirts. I raised $708 this morning, inlcuding registration fees, extra donations, and selling extra t-shirts for $5 each!!
I also had a Pampered Chef party as a fundraiser last month, and we just closed that. I’ll be getting $200 toward my goal for that!
Overall I’ve raised $2896 of my $4500 goal! I still have a little over $1600 to go, but I’m positive that more individual donations will come in and I’m planning another 5K race for the middle of October.
After breakfast at the Golden Unicorn (yay for buffet on the weekends!), we came home and played for a while. Then Robbie went up for a nap and I got into uniform and headed to formation. We had a concert in Cape Vincent this evening. The Dixieland Band played for about 45 minutes to open the concert and then it was concert band’s turn. I sight-read the concert, but I was playing the 3rd part so it wasn’t too hard. The concert went well and had a good crowd. We were a little worried about the weather, but it turned out to be a perfect evening for a concert. Once we got back to the band hall, I headed home and I gave a fellow bandman a ride. He lives here in Carthage as well and he and his wife only have 1 car. I don’t mind giving people rides once in a while, especially if I’m going the same direction anyway. When I got home, Robbie was finishing up his bath and then we got him to bed and Ryan and I started watching the NASCAR race. I read about a week’s worth of newspapers and now I’m heading to bed before I fall asleep at the computer.
glad to see that you’re getting closer to your goal :-0
