Team Jenna was back at it for the Al’s run this year. I made a Firstgiving fundraising page and asked family, friends and co-workers to donate. I was surprised by the amount of donations I received, but I thought I would make a last ditch effort.
I made cupcakes and brought them into work. All I asked for in exchange was for them to drop some change into the jar. I made Strawberry with Vanilla Buttercream and Devil’s Food with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream using some raspberries a co-worker brought in the day before.
By the end of the day all the cupcakes were gone and there was $94 in the jar! Some of them also donated online. I think this worked out well because they could name their own price.
By the day of the Al’s run/walk I had collected $762.22! Jake and I joined Jenny, Jadyn and of course Jenna. Jenna wore a purple shirt for Children’s Champions.
The other shirts had Team Jenna on the back with a cute stick figure of a girl with curly hair.
There were over 4,000 people there and the weather was cool but by the end of the walk I was quite warm. In total Team Jenna raised $1,717!!! Thank you to everyone that donated and while I hope we never have to use Children’s Hospital I am so grateful it is there for all those children that need it and in case we ever do.
