Here is the email I received today:
“Here is what you did. Take more than a glance at this. It’s summer, it’s hot outside, give yourself a moment to reflect on what you have accomplished. Whether you rode, volunteered, donated, sponsored, or supported, you raised an astounding amount of money that will make a difference in thousands of lives.
We spent the months leading up to the Ride introducing you to real people who receive care because of you. See their faces, read their stories again, and know that for every one of them, there are thousands more with grateful hearts. There is no greater love than to sacrifice for the sake of another. You have demonstrated our highest calling so beautifully, none of us can be the same.
Lives are better. Lives are saved. It’s that simple, and also one of the most profound things I’ve ever seen, all thanks to you.
So be proud, share with someone that you are a part of this, and know that we are thankful beyond words.
Take one last look at the thermometer, flowing over the $500,000 goal at $596,000 and still counting!!
This Friday, we’ll reset the thermometer to the 2012 Ride. Keep the momentum going! Register today, raise money, start your teams, and be a part of growing this community who’s love knows no bounds.
With the gratitude of thousands,
Thank you to all the Angels who made this possible.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
