Double or Nothing?

Well, we've done it! We met our fundraising goal of $1500!! In only 4 short months, with the help of many many friends and family (and friends of friends, etc), we raised $1500. Every cent of that money is going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation to find a cure for this blasted disease! Woo hoo!

When we first set that goal, I thought it would be pretty tough to reach. But obviously, it wasn't so bad. That's when we decided that we needed something a little more challenging. As of this morning, we have officially DOUBLED our goal. That's right, doubled. So the new & improved Team G Shock fundraising goal is $3000. I KNOW we can do it, and I'm so excited for all that has and is still to come for this team.

We're also still well on our way to running the 10 races we originally set out to run! We ran our 6th race on Saturday, the I Run For The Party 5k right here in Nashville. It went well and was tons of fun, so keep an eye out for results & photos later this week!

And on a VERY happy note...I am pleased to share that my Dad is doing GREAT. Yesterday (Nov. 1) was 6 months to the day that he was diagnosed. He made it through a few hormone treatments already and 8-weeks of radiation. So far, so good. He will still continue to receive hormone treatments for a couple years, with check-ups along the way to make sure his positive progress continues. So thank you for all of your prayers and happy thoughts, and please continue to send them his way! It can't hurt, right?
