The next two weeks are exceptionally busy for me.  I would like to continue surpassing my weekly targets as set by the Komen 24-week schedule, but I will be happy to meet them.  I will need to follow my own suggestions about training and traveling which I posted about this past Saturday.  Check out this post by a fellow 3-Day walker about the importance of training.

This week yielded a $100 donation from someone I barely know!  I was wearing my 3-day hat when a guy who works in my building thanked me for participating in the Komen events.  We had about a 10 minute conversation, I gave him my 3-day card, and as soon as he got home he donated! 
FUNDRAISING TIP OF THE WEEK:  Don't be shy about handing out that 3-day card!  Donations come from some people you wouldn't expect to donate or you hardly know!

That donation put me at 64% of my fundraising goal!
Personal total to date:  $1483.12
Team Tota to datel:  $4653.00

Other fundraising efforts included soliciting businesses for donations via e-mail, as well contacting an Italian restaurant near hear about doing a "Dining for Donations" night in the next month or so.  I haven't gotten response from any of them yet, but businesses take a bit to respond sometimes.  I am hopeful!

Don't forget, if you are in the Seattle area or know someone in the Seattle area, to check out team member Lindsey's dinner and silent auction event on May 22nd!

Thanks to Kara, our team 3-day website has been revamped!  Check it out and let me know what you think!
