I'll update more tomorrow, but in about 7 hours I'll be in downtown Houston with my mom and a friend participating in Race for the Cure. I had a modest fundraising goal of $50, hoping 10 friends would donate $5. Well, my sweet friends and family gave $185. Friends I haven't seen in months or even a year. Friends in Seattle and DC and Bahrain. Friends I met in junior high and high school, or my freshman year of college, or my first day of seminary. And extended family that I spend every Christmas with.
Each time I received an email notifying me of someone's donation I was so touched. I felt encouraged and supported. I'm so honored to run, run, run tomorrow morning!
