With gas prices like they are and the cost of living going up sometimes donating money to special causes takes a back seat. But now is the time these fundraisers really need our help.
Roger is participating in the annual Penguin Paddle this Friday. His goal is to raise $1,200.00 to help with finding a cure for Arthritis. So far he has $850.00 so he is almost there.
Tige and Vicki have done very well raising money for the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Foundation. As I wrote in an earlier post, Vickie is running the Hospital Hill 1/2 Marathon in support of their foundation. With the help of Kristine a few news stories have run over the past weeks. The local community has really helped out so far donating over $6,000.00 to help the DBA.
Speaking of the DBA and fundraising, look for a new cyclocross race to start off the cyclocross racing season this fall.
