86. The Dream Team Project - Update

Back on September 20th, in article #68, I wrote about how I joined forces with Lou Mongello to help raise money for his Dream Team Project. This is a charity that helps send seriously ill children and their families to Walt Disney World through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. As part of the fundraising effort, I joined Lou's WDW Radio Running Team and committed to participating in the 5K during Disney's Marathon Weekend in January.

I am very excited to report that my brother Steve has decided to join me, and will be my traveling and running companion on the trip to Florida. Although neither one of us typically run unless being chased, Steve also believes in the Dream Team cause and I really appreciate his support. I'm hoping that if the 5K goes well, I might be able to convince him to try the half-marathon with me next year. Of course I have to convince myself first!

Since September, I am happy to say that we have raised $110. I am very grateful to those who have donated. I know times are tough and your support means alot to me and to the children who you will be helping. I am once again asking for donations to help in this wonderful cause. As you can see from the progress chart in the margin of this blog, we are still a ways from our goal of $500. We are just under a month until the race and I'm confident we can get close to that $500 mark. During this season of giving, any amount will definitely help out. All you have to do is click on the "Donate" button on the upper right of Digital Disney World to make a quick donation.

I want to once again thank Lou Mongello for organizing The Dream Team Project, which has raised over $100,000 in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I also want to thank all of you in advance for anything you are willing to contribute. I hope you continue to enjoy Digital Disney World and wish you a happy holiday season and a very Merry Christmas!

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
