I posted back in February about signing up to do the Over the Edge event. I promised then that I’d only post about it a few more times. So here’s the third (and final) post where I again ask for your help.
In case you forgot, “Over the Edge” is a fundraiser for the Special Olympics North Carolina. On October 6, 2012, participants that have raised at least $1,000 will rappel 32 stories off the Wells Fargo Building on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.
I’m currently at $815, or 81% of my goal, with less than a month to go. To raise this money, I’ve sold things on eBay and held yard sales, as well as to ask for donations from family and friends. I even managed to get a sponsorship from my gym, Clayton Fitness.
I need to have all money raised by September 28. I’m asking for a donation of $10. All I need is 20 people to make a donation in that amount and I’ll have reached my goal!
Please make a donation by visiting my FirstGiving page: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/jessicameadows/over-the-edge-raleigh
You can donate online with a credit card. All donations are secure and sent directly to SPECIAL OLYMPICS NORTH CAROLINA by FirstGiving, who will email you a printable record of your donation.
I hate asking for money and this has been really difficult to do but what has been great is to see the friends and people who have donated. It’s always nice to know people are thinking about you and are on your side!
