Reunion with fundraising walk

This morning I participated in a charity walk with friends/former and current co-workers to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

We came together this morning to honor a great man who left this world too soon.

Team Goldman ended up being No. 4 in fundraising.

We rallied at the end to get back to No. 3, where we had been during most of the fundraising months before the run/walk.

My team raised $6,244. I raised $1,393, which made me the No. 2 fundraiser on Team Goldman.

The only terrible thing today was that the walk started at 7:45 in San Francisco.

But the great part was I got a walk in, raised money for a great cause and got to have a reunion and hang out with fun people who I currently work with and some who no longer work there.

Oh, and there was a brunch cookout after, which included mimosas. So not too shabby.

Thank you to everyone who donated. You will be getting a thank-you note soon.

Walking to raise money

Next Sunday I am getting up at an ungodly hour on my precious day off to head to San Francisco to walk with my friends/co-workers to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

We are walking in honor of a great man who left this world too early a year ago today.

I was hoping to be No. 1 fundraiser on my team. So unless any of you want to donate 600 bucks I will have to settle for second place, which is pretty awesome, too.

But I have one week to continue raising money for this important cause.

If you would like to donate to me, please visit my personal fundraising page.

And hey, besides raising money for something important I will also be walking about 3 miles (and hopefully on a gorgeous San Francisco day).
