With 18 days to the big day, we have raised over $315,000. I believe we can do better!!! Let’s exceed our fundraising goal of $625,000. The money we raise allows NJ Sharing Network Foundation to support and promote the gift of life through organ and tissue donation. Together, we are making a difference!
Shout out to our top five fundraisers!
1. Cindy Boyea
2. Phyllis Caputo
3. Alyssa D’Addio
4. Randi Geffner
5. Max Prince
Everyone is doing a great job! Let’s all make a promise to step it up these next 18 days! We can do it!
I wanted to share a Facebook post from Alyson Angstreich of Pop-Pop’s team! She posted on NJ Sharing Network Facebook wall:
“Pop-pop’s team walks and runs in memory of Stephen Coopersmith (Pop-pop) who waited on the heart transplant list and received a heart from a hero in August 2010. We also walk/ run to honor a member of our team, Dr. Ed Gold, who donated his kidney to his wonderful, healthy daughter Marissa. But most importantly, we walk/ run to raise awareness for the need for organ donors in hopes that we will see a day when no person will have to go through the pain of waiting for agonizing amounts of time on a transplant list.”
Thank you Pop-Pop’s team for sharing this wonderful message of why you are running and walking. I encourage everyone to post on NJ Sharing Network facebook and @NJSharing twitter and share why your team runs and/or walks. Your stories are powerful and continue to inspire me everyday! Your stories are the reason I run, the reason I fundraise, and the reason I am passionate about this mission! THANK YOU!
