My CF Walk (raised $1,000+) Love My Team!

Thank you to everyone!

I had a very busy weekend, I worked a wedding rehearsal dinner and a wedding; Also our GreatStrides Fundraising Team went to the CF walk on Saturday morning!

Thank you to everyone who came and walked, fundraised, and donated to help our team reach our goal! Our Goal was $1,000 and we raised over that amount! We were soooo thrilled to reach our goal. (the final amount and our Team Photo will be posted later)

It was a great walk along the riverfront and afterwards we went up to the top of the observatory tower! What gorgeous veiws!

I've decided to do two CF walks a year, the main one (Peoria) which is in October, and the Champaign Walk in April. The one in Champaign I won't fundraise as much and will just have a few friends from the area join me. However, I want to keep focusing on the Peoria Walk. Each year I hope to have more people and raise more money!

I decided to be organized about it and I made a facebook group for anyone who would be interested in walking with my team! I have designs for T-shirts next year and I uploaded some Tips, sample fundraising letters, etc on the Facebook group to help my team members! Hopefully, it helps make fundraising a little easier.

I was really impressed by the number of people I had come and how much we raised for my first year with an ogranized team!

Overall, this was my 4th Walk, 2nd in Peoria, and first time walking with more than a couple friends!

So Thank You Team CF2 (CF squared: "Courageously Fighting Cystic Fibrosis") I'm very much looking forward to next year!
