One Event down....

Celebrate for a Cause was a sucess....

We had GREAT desserts donated from Liz Alteri, Kate Brennan, Cindy Miller, Jenny Wagstaff, BTs, Coffee Mill, Macados, Our Daily Bread and Pascals Kitchen! Even with the wine snaffoo it was still a great time! Thank you Vintage Cellar and the Gallery for improvising and adapting!

14 weeks to go

Can you believe it? When I got this weeks training schedule I was so shocked that we were that close. Last week we had our 2nd Fundraiser- Clothing for a Cause, a recycled clothing sale. We raised $1000 and received an outpour of support from the community. We had so much stuff that we filled the entire downstairs of Encore with clothing, shoes and accessories. Thank you to all the donators and shoppers. The remaining goods are going to the Radford Clothing Bank this week.Our next fundraiser is planned for July 18 and it's a fun one... Cupcakes for a Cause. Main Street is closed from 5 to 9 p.m. that night for an Embers Concert. We will sell an assortment of cupcakes and iced tea... a perfect southern fundraiser! Someone asked how training was going yesterday and i said "All I feel like I do is WALK." She said, "Then you are really training!" It is good and I feel like with over an hour plus daily I have gotten some good and much needed counciling time with myself. It is amazing what surfaces in your thought when you are solo. I have started long walks on the weeked (8 this Saturday and 10 on Sunday) and am suddenly wishing our town was larger.Signing off for today but like to keep whomever reads this posted!
