Team Boobylicious hit a couple of big goals this afternoon. We hit our original goal of 12 team members, so we did what any good co-captains would do. We set a new goal of 15 team members.
And even more exciting feat? We crossed over the $20,000 mark on donations. Un-freaking-believable. Our team goal of $30,000 is absolutely attainable. My personal goal of $2500 is also definitely in reach.
Of course I could come up with a whole list of things of why this year’s 3 Day is making me so proud, but the main one now? Our team has managed to recruit nine more people to help raise money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.
Jenni and I are going to try to recruit even more people next Saturday. We’re volunteering at the next 3 Day Expo.
When I think about how much work I’ve put into fundraising, training, and spreading the word about the walk and why I’m walking, I really feel like this is the most important thing in my life right now. It fills me with pride and happiness and dignity and nobility. Who knew charity could be so self-fulfilling?
(You people would be so proud if you knew how hard it was for me to make this post without sharing any of the negativity that some of our team members bring to each and every event.)
