Walk to SAVE Lives Recap

As you guys know, I was in charge of helping to promote the campus and community wide Suicide Prevention Walk.  In all honesty, it was one of the most rewarding projects I have EVER worked on and I can’t thank everyone enough for donating.  It really means a lot.  I raised close to 1600 dollars.   

1600 dollars.

As a whole and when the rest of the sponsor checks are calculated, we will be close to 25,000.  

We had over 450 people walk and I truly believe we touched the lives of over 1000 people.  1000 people.  Can you believe that because I certainly cannot.  I’m going to post a few photos of the Walk. 

I contacted the winner of the 100 dollar giveaway who asked to remain anonymous and thank you every one for entering and donating.  Once I have them made up, I’m going to be sending out personalized cards for everyone that donated. 

A few days before the WALK, all the coordinators in pink plus one of the sponsors a local Roller Derby team.
Some of my undergrad coworkers who came and helped 🙂

The Walkers beginning the actual walk! 450 coming!
After finishing clean up and 9 hours later…it’s nap time. YES I thought it would be funny to lay in the fetal position.

Question for you: What is one of your most proud accomplishments?

  1. It looks like the walk went really well! Sorry you couldn’t actually walk it, but you did a ton of work on it with raising money and coordinating which more than makes up for not being able to do it due to the injury. Great that you guys raised that much money for such an important cause too!

  2. I’m really glad the walk was such a success!

    Most of my achievements (if not all) tend to be selfish ones – it takes a truly good person to do something entirely selfless like this, and to dedicate their time to it the way you have.


  3. I’m so glad the walk went amazingly! You are a rock star for raising that money. It’s so awesome that you used your blog to help with such an important cause.
