A Party

Last week, on February 20th, Rebecca’s coworkers Christina and Jen decided to host a small fundraising party for us!

We got some raffle items that are important to our lives in Chicago, like a ticket package to The Plant (Rebecca has volunteered there for about 4 years), an annual pass for Divvy (the bike share system Tim has worked on for the past 3 years), and a painting of the world that Rebecca did when she first moved to Chicago.

There was lots of talking and laughing that night

It was a good time with great people who are all wonderfully out there supporting us on our walk! One of the best/most popular fundraising items was a postcard for you or someone you know! (We will post this opportunity on the “help us along” page as well) For $5 we will send you a postcard, for $10 you can choose the state that we will walk through that you want your postcard from, and for $20 you can choose the town/roadside attraction/random thing that might have postcards along our walk that you want us to send you a postcard from. It was a great time, we ate, we laughed, we talked, and of course we drank some too.

The map reveal!

Tara won the Divvy membership:

Trey won the painting and Jackie won the tour tickets for The Plant (but we don’t have pictures of those)!

Thank you everyone for a great time (and the $400 that we raised!!)  It is so heartwarming to know that there are people here rooting for us to finish this!
