Weekly fundraiser update, 7/8.

Shortest Sunday run yet today. But, it was a busy weekend with a 5K race yesterday in Hutch, and another one this morning in Kansas City, MO.


Firecracker 5K, 7/7: 3rd place overall (out of 264 finishers), PR of 19:29. Top 2 were ineligible, so I won $150 gift certificate to Brown’s Shoe Fit. Neat.

All-Star 5K, 7/8: 63rd place overall (out of 5,439 finishers), time of 19:53. Very hilly course. Lots of fun!

Here’s an update on the fundraiser…

As of right now (6 PM, July 8), I have raised $665.25. ($78.25 this week)

Since I started this fundraiser (May 11), I have run 329.25 miles.

Where donations have come from:  (if multiple town entries, it means different people from same town — when someone donates multiple times, I just add it to that person’s total)

$50 from Pretty Prairie, KS

$50 from Broken Arrow, OK

$40 from Albuquerque, NM

$30 from Decatur, IL

$30 from Chicago, IL

I’ve had 7 states contributing so far: Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Illinois, Washington, and New Mexico (new this week).

And 2 countries: United States, Serbia.

Hoping for more states and perhaps even countries soon. I’d still love to have 10+ states, and 3+ countries contribute.


Here’s how you can donate:

– In person.

– By mail.

1903 E. 24th St. Apt B2, Hutchinson, KS 67502

– Online.

PayPal is easier than I expected. All you need to do is go [here], and enter my e-mail address, which is: derkfor3@hotmail.com.

I’ll have more photo collages than usual this week posted on my Facebook page, but here is the one from today…
