I asked John Schick for an update on his fundraising efforts. Here’s what he sent me:
“My fundraising, so far, has been quite interesting especially not knowing what to expect in my first effort of this type. To this point, I’ve raised $2,670. Many people have stepped up and been quite generous which has really been humbling for me, as well as my dad. Some people who I thought would contribute haven’t yet, and some who I didn’t really expect to join this effort have in big ways. Letters have told me of personal cancer experiences of which I knew nothing. Several people have told me that they will contribute later, and I’m sure they will. The patience I’ve learned as a distance runner is proving valuable to this fundraising effort. Just as a distance race has many segments, this fundraising effort seems to as well. Even though the finish line is not yet in sight , the race is unfolding before my eyes. So far, so good.”
Below is an interview John did with his dad over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Remember that John’s goal is $8,700 by April. Cancer touches all of us. If you’re able, why not get in one more end-of-the-year donation? Here’s his fundraising link: http://www.rundfmc.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=484862&supid=338423199
