T-Shirts! And we broke $2500 today!!!

A childhood friend of Dan Elsener, Brent Welch owns Resort Promo Wear here in Wichita, Kansas. Brent has come up with a pretty cool shirt for us and the first batch should be ready Friday. At that time he will give me a price of what the shirt cost for him to make, we will add $5 to the shirt cost and that $5 will go towards our goal. Brent has agreed to make the shirt's at straight cost, this is his donation to our event! Quite a gift, usually people mark up the shirt, charge a printing and screening fee, this is going to be a great deal for all of us. These will be sweat wicking "running style" shirts.

I just returned home from speaking with the Marines, Army and Navy recruiters about there participation in our June 26th track run fundraiser. All 3 of these military branches are truly going out of there way to help. Some are providing humvees for the kids to look at and handing out water bottles and shirts. We are working with the FireDept about getting a ladder truck out there as well. If you can walk a lap around a track, please show up June 26th. If 1000 people walk one lap and pay $1, that is a lot of money and so easy!!!
Angel went and picked up more gift cards for the raffle today and we have to present a proposal to the YMCA for setting up our "Wichita" raffle at there 8k event here in June,(Rock and Run) more details when this is finalized. We have also broke $2500 in personal donations in less that one month, this is donations from just people! We should have the number on corporate donations so far in the next week or so. All of you are great, thank you and keep up the good work! Semper Fi
