As you know, I’ve been raising money for Buckeyethon, an annual fundraiser Ohio State does in order to benefit juvenile cancer research. People who raise the minimum amount of money get to go to a 12-hour dance marathon, and every year more and more people join up and more and more funds are raised.

This year I raised more money than I’ve ever raised before: $313, donated from 10 generous people. This is also more than the $250 minimum we had to raise this year. I’d like to name and thank the people who’ve helped me reach my goal:

  • Beth Tucker
  • Diane Stemper
  • Michele Ungar
  • Anna Wilkinson
  • Wendy Mohr and Wendy Ungar
  • Michael Ungar
  • Angela Misri
  • Vicki Miller
  • Chad Foust
  • Sarah Strasser

Thank you for your generosity. You not only help me, but you help many, many children and adults who are fighting a terrible disease every day and wanting to live their lives cancer-free. So hats off to you! I really appreciate what you’ve done for me and for them.

Regrettably, I won’t be able to attend this year’s dance. I know, I know. My last year and all, but my cousin’s bar mitzvah is that same weekend, and you only get one of those once in your life. So, too bad. But I’ve raised a lot of money over these past three years. And so have thousands of other students. Together we’ve made an indelible contribution to ongoing research into cancer and making sure many, many children and adults are able to live their lives cancer-free.

I’m not sure if you can still contribute at this point, but if you want to, you can check out my fundraising page here. And if you’d like to donate, any amount is good. It’s not for me, but for the people who benefit from your donations, and I’m sure they’d be really happy with any amount you decide to give.

Thank you, my donors and my Followers of Fear. I really appreciate it.

Have a nice day! I know I will.
