Since I started my fund raising efforts for the Jingle Bell 5K Walk/Run for Arthritis yesterday afternoon, Team Z has already raised $575 for the Arthritis Foundation - quickly surpassing my original fund-raising goal of $500!!! We've had donations pour in from my family, from APL's family, from friends, and from family friends. It has been an amazing response, and I feel so much gratitude for all this support that I could absolutely burst!!

UPDATE: Not two seconds after I published this post, our total went up to $775!!!!! I can't tell you how excited I am about this!!

With more than three weeks to go until the actual event, I've upped our fund-raising goal to $1,000 - and I'm really excited about trying to reach it. If you are interested in making a monetary donation to support arthritis research, I'd love it if you would support Team Z or AML & MK's team (who inspired us to start)
Support Team Z  (raised $775 so far!!)
Support And A Partridge in a Pear Tree (raised $317.50 so far!!)

And, for serious: if you read this blog and happen to live in Colorado, please think about joining our team and walking with us! We'd love to have you! The more the merrier!! Seeing as I share so much on this blog, you pretty much know me already - and I'd love to meet you! ~;o) Join Team Z!

If you don't live in Colorado, there are Jingle Bell 5Ks happening all over the country! Find One Near You. Do it. You won't regret it. ~;o)
