Walk for Life: We’ve surpassed our goal, again! So… what should the NEW goal be?


Well, we did it! We surpassed the new goal, only a couple of days after setting it!

Our Walk for Life team has now raised more than $3,000 — to be precise, $3,076 as I type this.

There have been a number contributions to the General Team Donation category (including one from my good friend and colleague Mike Fitts). But the big story remains the highly successful efforts of those shakedown aces, Bryan Caskey and Doug Ross. Remember when I told you that Bryan was in the Top Five individual fund-raisers among all Walk for Life participant? Well, he’s moved up from No. 5 to No. 4, as you can see on the right-hand side of this page. Way to go, Bryan! And you know Doug’s gotta be in the Top Ten, which is tremendous.

But all of you who have contributed need to form a circle, all turn to your right, and pat the person in front of you on the back. You all deserve it.

Now, that said, down to business. Of course, now that we’ve reached the goal, Col. Cathcart will set a new, higher number. You know how he is.

So I’m asking y’all’s advice. What should it be? $4,000? $5,000? I want it to be a stretch, but achievable. Thoughts?

    Also, a quick scan of the big board shows me that we’re in 8th place out of close to 400 teams.

    Yay, us!

    Of course, we’re not going to stay in that position, or rise, unless we keep the money flowing in. We have a week of fund-raising time left — and so do those other teams.

    Pink Posse is in first place, with $5,605 (surpassing a goal of $5,000). The enormous Team Haddon is in second, with $5,360. Team Winkie is the only other team over five grand, with $5,210.

    That would be a very Rand Paul approach. State of nature. Hobbesian.

    If only we could be assured that the lions would go out and only eat the people who ought to be et.

    No, wait — the Darwinian way is, if they get et, they needed to get et…
