Because of the generosity of all of my friends, family and even complete strangers, I have now reached my fundraising minimum for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure this summer in Boston!  I absolutely could not have done it without my wonderful support system, so thank you to everyone who has donated to this point!

That said, I am not done with my fundraising just yet!  I still have a number of teammates on Relentless Optimism that have yet to reach their fundraising minimums and our team is still far short of our $20,000 team goal.  I will continue to work hard to support my team right up until the event in July.  If you would like to help our team reach our fundraising goal, you can do so in one of two ways:

1)  We are still running our team fundraiser with Tastefully Simple, but only until TOMORROW!  Make you purchases soon before it's too late!  You can find all of the details about that fundraiser on our team fundraising blog here.

2)  You can donate directly to one of my teammates through the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure website.  You can find links to their pages on the right hand sidebar of our team fundraising blog or by visiting our team page on the 3 Day website.  Please note that as crew members, Michelle, Doug and Tommy are not required to do any fundraising.  

Thank you so much for your continued support!  To end this post, I wanted to share with you the congratulations letter that I received from the 3 Day folks.  It is because of all of you that I was able to reach this milestone, so I would be remiss if I didn't share the congratulations with you as well!

Congratulations - you did it! You’ve reached your fundraising minimum for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure™. Thank you for your determination, selflessness and commitment to the fight against breast cancer. Your efforts are making a significant difference in the continuing effort to find a cure.
Net proceeds from the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure™ fund innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. Virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 27 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure® grant.
Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure® and the Komen 3-Day for the Cure, we have invested more than $1.3 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. Because of you, lives are being saved. Because of you, we are one step closer to our goal of a world without breast cancer.
We understand the kind of hard work it takes to get to this point, so let your efforts keep working for you and the cause. Don’t stop now! Give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back - and then set a new goal. Keep talking with people about the Komen 3-Day for the Cure, about your experience fundraising and training, and about breast cancer. You will continue to raise awareness and funds in the weeks to come.
Please extend our thanks to your donors. Every dollar makes a difference.
