Good News #1: Goal Met
The link above is to a fundraising page created in support of a church in Detroit. As you read the cover page on this site, you’ll read they’ve been in a campaign to raise $20,000 by Memorial Day. Good News: they’ve reached their goal…two weeks ahead of schedule. This was phase one of a year-end goal to raise $50,000.
Bad News #1: Sidelined
My right calf has been giving me fits for almost two months. I finally saw a doctor yesterday and running the race this Sunday is out of the question. Nothing longterm, just have to work out some scar tissue through therapy (follow this link about graston technique) and rebuild. But, that means the dollars donated for this cause and this race seem unresolved. Nothing more frustrating to me than not being able to run a race that is paid and trained for with a goal of helping others attached.
Good News #2: Transferable
It hit me that through the Race 13.1 series, they might have a transfer policy in place to allow you to move your registration from one race to another. Sure enough, checked the website, and that was an option. So Good News: I can train for another race this year without losing the registration, and not only should I be able to honor the intent of the funds already raised, now we can further assist Storytellers as they move into their next fundraising phase by raising more funds before my rescheduled race.
Stay tuned to find out the rescheduling and how you can support this next phase for Storytellers.
