Today is the day before, the day before we run. 🙂 I don’t know why that thought popped in my head but it makes me laugh. Most importantly, though, it’s a big day because we’re closing in on our goal and I wanted to provide you all with an update on our fundraising campaign to benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne.
As of last night, we were at $4,552 raise for NLFW. Our goal is $5,000 so we’re over 90% of the way there. All of this is pretty remarkable because we’ve covered our costs, barely, through local sponsorships and individuals who’ve given to help our expenses. In non-Covid year’s those dollars exceeded our needs and we had a surplus that poured into our fundraiser.
This total is significant because it’s largely given from private donors as there’s been very little, less than $100, that’s gone into the fundraiser from sponsorships. In year’s past, that number was pushing $2,000.
So if we hit our goal, it will represent the largest outpouring of love and support through private individuals our team has ever received. That definitely is appreciated and gives us a warm feeling but being that we’re so close, the question comes to now….can we get there by the time we run our last mile on Saturday?
