team week

Well, I was supposed to have a followup post at the beginning of the week about "Team Week" where I was hoping I would summarize what team week was all about and maybe spend some time sending out some followup emails trying to motivate some additional fundraising. Didn't happen.

Instead, it turned out to be a crazy week and things PKD-related took a back seat. Last weekend, we were up in Vermont for the Sayah family reunion. It was a quick trip this time - up Saturday morning, back Sunday night. I'll post more on this separately later, along with some pictures. We got back late Sunday night to find an answering machine full of messages, so we knew something was wrong. The bad news was that Jeanne's Mom had fallen down the stairs and was in the hospital with several broken bones. Then, Monday, more bad news, as one of Jeanne's cousins passed away from stomach cancer. And on top of all of that, I had an incredibly busy week at work. So, anything to do with fundraising or anything else related to the walk was way down the priority list the past week.

But, despite doing absolutely nothing during the week to deserve anything, our team was lucky enough to win the Thankful Thursday award of a PKD Foundation "bag of goodies". Our team was randomly drawn from all of the teams that had at least 10 registered team members. Other winners for the week were Three Peas in a Pod on Motivational Monday, the Dream Team on Two-for-Tuesday, and Hooked on Hope on Wild Wednesday.

So, today, I'm finally getting around to catching up on things related to the walk. We've received a few more donations over the past week and our total is now up to $2195. Thank you to all of you whom have supported us so far!
