I have only tried to raise funds once before when I did the Train to End Stroke ½ Marathon in Kona, Hawaii. I have forgotten how hard it is. As of today I have raised $260 which is great but a long way off from $2400. I see why they want you to try and raise the money though. It is very humbling. I can’t think of many things I like less than asking someone for money.
On the flip side it is nice to have people involved and feel like I’m sharing a part of the trip with them.
My current prayers are that I will be able to see God’s hand in raising the rest of the money.
