Walk for Life: Don’t leave Doug hanging out there, folks!


I think maybe we should rename the bradwarthen.com Walk for Life team the Doug Ross team, because he has raised/contributed an amount that by itself exceeds the goal I set for the team.

The goal was $1,000. Doug, alone, has chipped in $1,014. Here’s where you can see the contributions to the team.

I hope this doesn’t make everyone else think, “Good. I don’t have to give now.” I hope it makes everyone think, “If we all get together, maybe the rest of us can match Doug, and reach double the goal.”

I hope. I hope. Because I’m going to be embarrassed to see Doug on Walk day (Oct. 5) if no one else has risen to the challenge.

Hey, believe me, I know what it’s like to be strapped for cash. But if you can give, please do. And if you can’t, pester your friends the way I’m doing now. Do it on social media; do it in person. Shake ’em down. Be a pain about it.

Lets be a team. Let’s not leave Doug hanging out there.

We’ve raised more than we did two years ago — almost entirely thanks to Doug. But last time around, we had contributions from Kathryn Fenner, David Knobeloch, Pat Dixon, Nick Nielsen, Buddy Johnson and Mark Stewart. Exceeding the dollar amount is great, but it would be even better if we could widen participation this time.

Come on, jump in. You’ll be glad you did. I will, anyway…

    You don’t want to know what I had to do to raise that money. Think of the old joke with the punch line:
    “We’ve established what you are, now we’re just negotiating”

  2. Silence

    That Walk For Life donation site is a bit wonky. Hope all the regulars kick in some money, though! I think boobies are a cause we can all support!

      I’ll kick in again, but Silence has to walk for me. Sorry, but I will be on a West Coast golf course.

      It was a great Columbia event last time.
