With The Race for The Cure being Saturday, I felt like it was important to write a finale blog post giving proper thanks to all those that have helped us reach the total of $3,290 that has been donated to Susan G. Komen for The Cure. First of all, this is an unbelievable number…to put it in perspective last year we raised a total of $1,515 and this year we raised nearly $1,500 in our last day of fundraising alone! So after a long night of fundraiser and watching class totals raise, we need to recognize our parents and relatives that have helped us reach our fundraising goal:

Putting all the head shaving and all the games that we have associated with this fundraiser, at the end of the day the most important thing is that were were able to raise $3,290 for an organization that is very deserving and I am so proud of the positive response I received from parents, students, teachers, friends and everyone else involved in this process…and the fact that we were able to raise that much money is pretty awesome, and I have to give thanks to Jarrod Lamshed for motivating me to follow through with this whole experience.

So once again, thank you to everyone involved.

Mr. McClung
