Paige's Party with a Purpose
UPDATE 10/30- ONE DAY TO THE FINISH LINE
Concordia's Center for Literacy has received nearly 60 gifts and pledges to bring my current total to $4,835...just $165 short of my $5,000 goal!
This last bit feels a lot like the .2 of the 26.2 miles (which included the Roosevelt Road hill on the marathon course).
Perhaps you might consider a $1 for every mile I've run since the marathon. That's $20 to give the gift of literacy.
If I reach my total today, I will run tomorrow, Halloween Friday 10/31, in my costume. My training partner has pledged to document the effort, and we need to know if we need to set our alarm clocks.
Every gift of every size helps.
