Jeeping 4 A CURE - Success & Thanks!!
We can’t start to say thank you enough to everyone that supported us throughout this endeavor, without all of you it would not have been possible.
I know you all want to know how much money was raised. Well I am pleased to tell you that we made $5,100. Thats $1,100 more than we raised in 2012...WOW.
The reason we do this event was reinforced to us on Saturday evening...as we were winding down and starting to relax we received an e-mail from a lady that we had met at the Jeep Blessing a few weeks ago. She had given us the name of a family member that had been fighting cancer for ten years...on Saturday she lost that fight. We dedicate this year's event to the memory of Jennie Decker.
The event grew considerably this year. We had 81 pre-registered rigs which is 30% more than last year, and in addition 69 more showed up on the day. A total of 150 rigs which is up 50% higher than in 2012.
We need to say a big thank you to all our sponsors that made this possible. But a couple need special thanks…firstly to Rocks and Valleys. Ron, Lisa and all the Rangers have created such a great venue for us at the park. Secondly, to Leo’s Coney Island in White Lake, Jim and his staff supplied all the food for our lunch. Finally to my 'Stella' Trail Guides, Norb, Patrick and Super Dave, thanks for looking after everyone that rode with you.
This year we added the Trail Treasure Hunt for the kids, this seemed to go down well and I think the kids really enjoyed it (and the Big Kids too).
We do have a request for all of you…if you have links to any photo albums from the event, please send them to us so that we can see the pictures and Heather can scrapbook the event. Also we do have a Facebook page, Team Jeeping For Jugs, please 'like' us and follow our progress.
One final and repeated thanks to everyone for your support…and we look forward to another great event next year!!
