Weekly fundraiser update, 6/24.

After the most exhausting day of my life, I’ll try to make this quick.

Today, I ran a route I’ve wanted to run for a long time — from Kingman High School to Pretty Prairie High School, a 14.25 mile run. Got bit by a dog, encountered a snake. Umpired 4 straight games in 106 degree heat. Crazy day.

As of right now (almost 9:30 PM, June 24), I have raised $507.

Since I started this fundraiser (May 11), I have run 245.9 miles.

Where donations have come from: (hometown in parentheses)

$90 from Pretty Prairie, KS

$50 from Wichita, KS (Pretty Prairie, KS)

$50 from Tulsa, OK (Broken Arrow, OK)

$30 from Chicago, IL (Decatur, IL)

$30 from Concordia, KS (Abilene, KS)

$30 from Hutchinson, KS (Kit Carson, CO)

$25 from West Chicago, IL

$20 from Olympia, WA

$20 from Dallas, TX

$20 from Andover, KS

$15 from Andale, KS

$15 from Belgrade, SERBIA

$11.65 from Wichita, KS

$5 from Conway Springs, KS

$95.35 from Hutchinson, KS (Pretty Prairie, KS) — from my Sunday miles so far.

That makes 6 states contributing so far: Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Illinois, Washington.

And 2 countries: United States, Serbia.

And here’s a collage of today’s run…
