Another day of training and another afternoon of fundraising!
We completed a six mile training run on Saturday morning! It was our longest run to date and it was tough getting up at 6:00 am on Saturday morning after going to bed at midnight because of Jayce’s football game. After the run, we headed over to a Macy’s store at Cumberland Mall in Atlanta to participate in their annual event – “Shop for a Cause”. Once a year, Macy’s allows non-profit organizations to raise funds by giving out 25% off shopping passes in exchange for a minimum $5 contribution to the charitable organization. The employees told us that it was the second best sale they have every year, right behind “Friends & Family”. Bailey and I ended up raising $150 from the program on Saturday. A few customers that were really interested in what we were doing took our website address. One of them gave us a $50 contribution online today! That’s AWESOME!
