As you all know, last Saturday I was part of the Spina Bifida Association of Cincinnati's Walk and Roll. This was the 9th year for the event.
While final numbers may not be available for several weeks, we do have a total-to-date for my team, the Rockin' Rollers.
As of when I spoke with Judy Albert, the Walk Committee chairperson for SBAC, our team total was... $2147! That's just our team...and that is with a couple hundred dollars of donations still needing to be collected.
And Judy also tells me that together, all the people involved raised OVER EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. The goal for SBAC was $70,000! We blew that goal away!
As I noted Friday, coming up this Thursday will be a post to begin Spina Bifida Awareness Month, which goes through all of October here in the United States. As I noted, I'll tell you what it is, how many people are affected, and what can be done to either help deal with the problems that come with it, or outright prevent it.
Courage + Belief = LIFE
