Somewhere over the weekend, a complete stranger named Cedric made a $21 donation on my AIDS Marathon page. And his contribution took my personal sponsorship tally over the $3,000 mark. Which was my unofficial goal way back in April when I set up the page. (My official goal—established by the AIDS Marathon organizers—was $1,400, which friends and strangers alike helped me reach sometime in June.)
I'll check back in the next few days to see if any other post-race donations have trickled in, and then I'll take down the link.
But again, thanks to Cedric and everyone else who sponsored me, my fiancé, other AIDS Marathon runners and any runner training on behalf of any charitable cause this summer. Your contributions are changing lives in ways you may never see or even know about.
