Hi all! WOW what a day yesterday at the 3rd Annual NJ Sharing Network 5K Walk and USATF Certified Race!

 

I don’t think we could have wished for a better day!

 

There were NEARLY 6,000 beautiful people in attendace: donor families, recipients and their families, living donors, people waiting for the gift of life, and the families of those who could no longer wait. We had over 150 volunteers throughout the day, and our wonderful commmunity members, hospital partners and sponsors were also in attendance, as they continue to support our life-saving work and our mission to save and enhance lives. Thanks to you, we have raised almost $650,000 so far and we’re still counting!      

Remember: Contributions are still being accepted online, by-mail, and over-the-phone until July 15th! So keep it coming – I know we will reach our goal of $750,000!

What was your favorite part of the day? (I might have a hard time choosing just one!)

The 5K is Only Five Days Away!

Happy 5 Days until the big 5K! What a busy and exciting week this is going to be! I hope you have all been training and spreading the word about the 5K Walk and USATF Certified Race – I know I have! Actually, as of this afternoon we have over 3,800 team members and individuals participating – that is SO awesome! We are way ahead of where we were last year, so keep up the great work. If you haven’t registered yet, take a few minutes and join my team, NJ Sharing Network.   Together we can save and enhance lives through organ and tissue donation!

I am SO excited about the 5K this weekend, but I also have a very special annoucement to make! I just can’t hold it in any longer… I am getting MARRIED!  Mr. Pumps, both a classy and stylish guy, stole my heart and popped the big question. Of course I said YES! We will be tying the knot this February 14th (which you all know is Valentine’s Day, my birthday, and National Donor Day). How perfect is that!? I know, I know, you can’t wait to meet him – but don’t worry, he will be at the 5K this weekend supporting me and all of you. 🙂

More wedding details to come, but first let’s keep our eyes on the prize… literally! Did you know NJ Sharing Network will be giving out prizes to our biggest 5K Fundraisers? So get out there and keep FUN-draising! I know you can do it!

Can’t wait to see you all this weekend!

XOXO,

Future MRS. Pumps (Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?)
