Priceless…A Little Fundraising Perspective

This was passed down through the Team in Training family.  I thought you would enjoy it.
To put things into perspective for you in terms of how far you’ve come in the past four months….
Following up for the tenth time in three months with friends and family who have promised to write you a check for your upcoming event although half of them think you’re crazy for doing it…$150
Standing outside of your local Kroger in the blistery cold on a Saturday morning collecting donations from kind strangers…$300
Procuring auction items, asking for donated food and drinks, finding a free venue, selling beads on the streets of Detroit, asking team members to grill other peoples’ food for donations, organizing a major bowling fundraiser….$1000
Racing a triathlon, or running a marathon alongside of thousands of other Team In Training volunteers who have walked (swam, cycled and ran) a mile in your shoes and all for the same great cause….PRICELESS!
