Thank you again for allowing us to have a small part in this fight against cancer!
Also, The Avett Brothers just released an incredible new album and being that they are such generous supporters of our efforts, we would love to do something for them in return—and possibly introduce some of you to an incredible group of musicians! Their album is available at retailers around the country or on iTunes. To order on iTunes please click HERE.
Our sincere appreciation once again to an amazing group of musicians, people and friends and to all of you for your continued support!]]>
A lot of us take for granted that we have cancer centers right in our backyard. However, that is not the case for someone that has to drive to get their treatments—in this case, 33 visits, 110 miles round trip. The intangible costs are those that sometimes go overlooked so what a joy it is to be able to help in some capacity.
The true reminder of why we do this (and will continue to do so) was when she broke down and said that the cancer diagnosis was difficult but the most difficult thing was possibly having to take some time away from her children in the classroom. Such a heartfelt reminder of the selflessness of educators, everywhere. Thank you Mrs. Wayne for this reminder and we are honored to be able to help!]]>
“Hey Adam! I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner, but the kids just walked out the door for summer so I have a few minutes to spare – finally! Splash for Cash was a HUGE success!!! Many of the students said that it was their favorite activity of the whole year and the staff loved it, too. My husband ran the dunk tank all afternoon and had a great time, and the weather was perfect (even though we had a threat of possible rain). The best news is………you will be receiving checks totaling $1,057.26! I’m overwhelmed by the amount that we raised – I would never have thought that it would be that much. I will get the checks in the mail to you next week. And now…I have attached some of the over 200 pictures that were taken that day:) I am so proud to be able to make this donation to the Foundation!”
At no point did we ever expect to receive so much in return from doing what we do. It just goes to show the special, unique heart of educators everywhere—it takes a special person to do what they do. Thank you Mrs. Smith—we are beyond humbled! Thank you to everyone who played a part in making this happen and the joy that it has brought to our day! Now for a picture…
Well not only did the Sabres’ baseball team end up winning that state championship, we were able to be in attendance last night at the team celebration and had the privilege to make a donation to their incredible coach, Coach Tuscan.
Other speakers and presenters were Carolina Panthers’ Head Coach Ron Rivera and one of Senator Richard Burr’s top aides. Quite a humbling lineup but the South Meck family made us feel more than welcome.
Thank you for the warm welcome and allowing us to provide assistance to a wonderful young man and educator and be a part of your storybook tale! We know that the ending will be Coach Tuscan’s successful fight against cancer!
