Weekly update: $45,704 and 50 races!

We’ve now raised nearly $46,000 for the GBS/CIDP Foundation. That’s pretty amazing, and I owe a ton of thanks to all of you who’ve contributed. There’s still 18 days to go, and I’m still just over $6,000 short — but I’ve got a good feeling we’ll make it!

Weekly stats: 88% of the way to our fundraising goal, and 96% of the way to our running goal!

What’s been happening?

There’s been a flood of donations from amazing people in the past couple of weeks! Please join me in thanking Lisa Wong, who donated a huge $250. Thanks Lisa! Please also thank Jock Cheese (I knew it was you, James McGinty), Naren Chittar, Rodney O’Donnell and Vipul Dalal for donating $100 each. A bunch of good men! And thank Dennis Fetterly for his kind donation of $50. Add to that generous anonymous donations of $250, $150, $100, and $50! Thank you to all of you — I know who you are, and I appreciate it a ton!

Lots of running too. Perhaps the most amusing race this year was a race around Sydney past the Opera House and under the Harbour Bridge, dressed as Santa Claus. It was hot, humid, and the cheap polyester santa suit wasn’t pleasant going. But, 2,000 Santas for a good cause was pretty amusing. Anyway, 50 races are done, and there’s now just 2 to go!
