Just call me the Party Planner

It’s been a busy week. It has been filled with events and fundraisers and lots of planning for those events. Last night, we held our “happy hour” event at Top of the Hill. (Many thanks to Top’o for generously allowing us to use their venue and offering us some great incentives.) We had some wonderful friends come join us for food and drinks. It wasn’t quite the event we were hoping for, mostly because, due to time constraints, we weren’t able to publicize it as much as we would have liked. But we still raised several hundred dollars for Team Challenge, so definitely a success in my opinion!

And now, it’s time for more events! I’m going to start tomorrow off at Belk for their Charity Day sale. Hopefully that will help bring in even more for my race. It’s only 5 weeks away and coming quick, and I still have a good ways to go to reach my goal.

Following the Belk sale, I will be heading out the Take Steps Walk on Centennial Campus. I’ve had a really good time working on the event for the past several months. But I’m not going to lie, it has been a lot more work that I hard originally imagined. I definitely had not planned on doing so much all at once. I had planned to join the walk committee and that was it. But then the opportunity with Team Challenge came up and I had already committed to the walk, by that time. I quickly found out that I had taken on too much for my own good, but I wanted to stick with it. It has been a very busy couple of months and all of it has hit an apex this week.

I am excited about the event tomorrow. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun for a good cause. But I am also looking forward to it being done. That means I will actually have some time to relax on focus on my half-marathon and everything else coming up. I would definitely be up for doing a committee like this again, but I need a bit of a break.

But I am ready to go out tomorrow and enjoy the day with a bunch of people who are all fighting for the same thing. And I’ll try to remember to take pictures this time!

Sit down, stay a while. I'd love to hear from you.
