Team Captain Kit Arrived

February 15th, 2009 | Posted by john in General - (Comments Off on Team Captain Kit Arrived)

I got my team captain kit last week for the 3-Day. After looking through the stuff, I would really like to get some more people to join our team. The more people that sign up, the more people we can have in the fight against breast cancer. If you think you might be interested, but have questions please contact me and I would be more than happy to talk to you about it. Just click contact on the right. If you know that you would like to join, please do so at: http://www.the3day.org/goto/booty

 

New Fundraising Opportunity!

February 11th, 2009 | Posted by john in General - (Comments Off on New Fundraising Opportunity!)

The Speed Gamers have generously agreed to do a fundraiser to help with my 3-Day goal. Here’s a little about who they are:

TheSpeedGamers do gaming marathons to raise money for various charities. In total they have raised OVER $15,000 dollars. They are based in the DFW area of Texas and have done fund raisers for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Giggles Therapy, Lupus Foundation of America, and ACT Today (for autism care and treatment). Basically what they do is take a video game and they play it non stop for 72 hours, trying to beat it. During this time they broadcast live feeds of the game and the people playing the game and viewers make donations to the cause they are playing for.

I don’t have any details for when this event will be, but as soon as I do, I will post them. In the meantime, check them out and some of the other events they have had in the past: http://www.thespeedgamers.com

More to come soon!

 

Thank you!

I’d like to send a big thank you out to Stacy and Blake Rudolph, who not only came to my pizza fundraiser, but also made an additional donation while they were there. This will go a long ways to getting me towards my goal!

We had our pizza party fundraiser this past week at Peter Piper Pizza. We had a decent turnout and raised some money to go towards the goal! I want to thank everyone that was there to help make this event a success. Thank you!

 

Sickness Plagues Walking

Well, I didn’t get out walking at all this week because I was still sick. Hopefully I will be able to get out some more next week. We will see what happens.
