Trolley Run lead up

As you likely are aware, our family will again be participating in the Trolley Run.  Because of the tremendous support received last year, we are brainstorming new ways to show our appreciation for your generosity, and have a good time in the process.  I'd be lying if I didn't say I feel some pressure off last year's heels.

For starters we have organized some exciting opportunities from local restaurants to help Jude and the CCVI.  Papa Murphy's, Chipotle and Foo's Frozen Custard have each agreed to donate proceeds to the Trolley Run team with nightly fundraisers!  Rest assured, no one will go hungry for lack of good food throughout.

We have set a lofty goal this race for the money we hope to raise and the amount of people we want to join our team.  I may regret setting such high numbers.  A small donation might seem like nothing to you, but, I can tell you, it means the world to our family and to the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired.  The need remains.

I also hope these opportunities below are taken advantage of and your schedules allow.
  • Papa Murphy's Pizza: 3 Locations, February 1-3 (click on link to download flyer)
  • Chipotle (Plaza) Tuesday, February 26
  • Foo's Frozen Custard, (Leawood) Spring '13
  • Chick-fil-A, (Ward Parkway) April '13
  • Our Trolley Run link to donate or join: Jude's Dudes
  • Other opportunities coming!
Our goal is $10,000, which is an incredibly high amount, I know.  After all, where do low expectations get anyone?  I encourage the sharing of Jude's story, these opportunities and of the race.  As always, we're grateful.  

St. Jude: Pray for us.
