$6,767.01!!


As of this writing, that figure is the total amount of donations that our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer team recorded.

We had no big sponsors, backers, or funds matching. This was literally a dollar by dollar effort.

The effort started in ernest at Wizard World with Jen and Anthony's raffle and Fitz' target range events.
My thanks to them.

We also had two donation station efforts in Algonquin and Mokena. Again, my thanks to all who particpated.

I had some successes with my armbands for donation, the raffle of home canned jams and produce at the Master Gardener Pot Luck and the Jedi Costume raffle.

To put the icing on the cake, Rob Hamilton and Janine Jender launched a highly successful patch sale.

My thanks go out to all who beat up their families, friends and co-workers for donations. Thanks also to those who crawled out of bed early on Sunday morning and showed up to walk with remarkable enthusiasm. To all of our grizzled veterans and the awesome new members and recruits that came.

I think that the American Cancer Society said it best when they asked us to lead the walk as it stepped off. It was indeed a great honor.

My deepest and most sincere thanks to all of our partipants!

This is why you need to be a face character Crix, then they can't take you prisoner!

(tip of the day, stormtroopers can't hit face characters)

The job isn't finished until the paperwork is done...
lol...
paperwork is now done...
all of the memorial armbands that folks wore and I photographed hit the mail today.

If I took a photo of you wearing an armband and you don't see it below it is because many of the bands people wore were for donations that Valissa got for her fundraising effort and I sent those armbands home with her to hand out in person...

but here are the rest....and thanks to those who "carried" someone during our walk...

Very sad news from the family of Jan Balsitis...

Jan's armband was worn by Adrianne Bean during the walk this year....

Image


This is a message from her brother's wife:


"Thank you so much for what you do for the breast cancer cause. Jim's sister Jan was so thrilled to get the ribbon with her name on it and the picture of the team. She showed it to every one. Unfortunately, Jan died yesterday afternoon from liver complications. She suffers no more."





Many of you probably remember seeing this post I made to the MSABC planning thread:


Jim (her brother) says she loved her armband so much from last year...
that she framed it along with the "thank you" card...
and asked me to make sure I made another one for her this year...
