On Monday evening it happened.  Together we reached raising $2,000+ for Ophelia’s place.  I sat there in shock, in amazement and overall wow.  I don’t think I have been more proud or excited about something.  After realizing the significance of how much we have raised, I cried.  Good and happy crying but I just sat there crying.


I cannot thank each and every person for donating, for sharing their story and for sharing this series with others.  Not only have we fundraised but we have raised awareness. With only 2 weeks until the Lake Effect Half Marathon, I am getting more and more excited.  I am excited to run my heart out for such a good and rewarding cause.

So thank you. 

Thank you for sharing your story.

With over 2,000 dollars raised and the primary goal met, the sky is the limit.  If you have a story you would like to share or would like to donate please don’t hesitate!  There is still over two weeks to continue building awareness and fundraising.  If you or a loved one has a story to share my blog is always open.

I cannot believe 61 people donated and together we raised 2,035 dollars.  Stay tuned because next week a few companies have sent me products to raffle off for those donating.  I’m really excited to have companies supporting this cause too!

No questions today, words can never truly express how thankful I am.
