It is hard to believe I have just 1 month left in my journey. The trip has been an amazing experience. The second half seems to somehow have flown by even faster than the first half. After such a great event at The Longest Day, I unfortunately pushed my blog and my fundraising to the back burner. With just one month left, I will put forth my very best effort to reach my fundraising goal for the second half of the year just as we did for the first. It will not be easy, but with your help we can do it!
For the second half of the year, I will be raising money for the American Heart Association. The first half was in honor of Grandpa Harry and the second half will be in honor of Grandpa Jack. This time I will be playing Checkers (a game I learned from Grandpa Jack) for an entire day on The Shortest Day of the year. I chose the Shortest Day of the year because heart attacks can shorten the lives of those we love. I have officially surpassed 12,000 miles, so I will be donating the full $1,000 to charity on the year (this is $1.00 for every 12 miles). You can read more about my second half campaign and donate directly at my donation page here:
Shout out to the donors we already have on board!! Donations are for every 12 miles traveled…I know I am missing some people (apologies)!

- Make a pledge to donate at the end of my journey (money will go towards the American Heart Association). A pledge of just 1 penny for every 12 miles (up to 12,000 miles) will result in a $10 donation in December.
Thanks in advance for your support!
