Because I was one of the the top individual fundraisers for this year's walk, I was fortunate enough to be invited to this year's awards dinner. It was great to see people again, and to meet some new ones.
I met a gentleman who is also part of the Peers program (which is the mentoring strategy), and had just received his transplant in August. He looked fantastic, and felt amazing, so it was great to chat with him for a bit. I also met a lovely couple who didn't have a personal affiliation with NKF, but they were volunteers instead, which is GREAT to meet people like this who do this sheerly out of the kindness of their hearts. They even live close to me...only a couple of miles away.
Here's the certificate and the medal that I received. It's wonderful to be recognized for my efforts, so thanks to all of you for donating.
This coming year, I want to do more....raise more money. I'm hoping to enlist my friends to cocme up with some great and creative fundraising ideas. So pass along any ideas that you've got. Thanks again!
