Week 7 Update         1/10/10 – 1/17/10

*Written by Chris Kidwell Prestano

Seven weeks into our fundraising and we have reached 43% of our goal.Seven weeks into this and we are still the number one team with ten members and $2,166 raised for cancer research. Way to go, team!

We would like to thank the following people for their generous donations to Wings of Hope: Mary Aufiero, Samuel & Bonnie Sislen, Sista Jen, Joey Berry, Barbara Cohen, Brandon Riggs, Avi Cohen, and Andy Vineberg. Thank you. We would not be this successful without your support. As always, we want to give a special shout out to our girls at Dear Thyroid. Thank you for your continued support of our team. You rock ladies.

We’re still in the process of rounding up camping equipment and still working on finding a location to hold our bake sale. If you know of a place, please contact Angel McMellin.

Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers this week: Co-Captain Jennifer Bridge who is anxiously waiting for February 2nd to get her test results. But we are all confident that her scan will come back clean and she’ll be cancer free. Jennifer Rudd Monath and her family. Her grandmother is in the hospital and they have found cancer cells in her lung fluid. My aunt, Carol Dotson, who has spent the last month in the hospital battling lymphoma.

This is why we relay. So please help us because the more money we raise, the closer we get to a world without cancer.

Until next week,

Wings of Hope
