The team received an email yesterday, but after checking the website, the team (Team Nathan) raised $6,587, exceeding the $5000 pledge we had as a team. I cannot articulate how excited that makes me! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to friends who donated towards our team goal. I love you more than you know!
I had a chance to sit and talk to N. on Friday night, and I can visibly, tangibly see what that money goes toward. I see it in his eyes. I see it in the meds. I can see it.
Next year... I want to raise more. Please know that it's not about the number so much as it is realizing how much of that number it might take to beat the disease once and for all.
