Thankful Thursdays

For generosity and support.

This past Saturday, our team, Rx for the Soul, joined many others in the St. Jude 5K Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. The turnout was fantastic, and I was so happy to see so many people take part in support of such a great cause.

I wholeheartedly thank each of you who donated to help our team not just meet, but surpass, our fundraising goal. And I thank also my firm, White & Case, for its matching donation.

To those of you who joined our team and walked with us: You rock, well done! It was an early start to a very hot day, but we had a great time filled with satisfaction knowing that we came together to make a difference in the lives of St. Jude children and their families.

Special thanks go out to my T-Shirt Committee: Ray, who drove me around town for the lowest-priced t-shirts; and Danny, Lauren, and Lauren, who designed our logo and printed our shirts. Kids, the three of you did an awesome job! Also, thank you to John and Roxy from my firm, and Vanessa from the Morgan Lewis firm, who had a hand in printing the images. And Gabe, who went with me to pick up the team packets. As you see, this was certainly a team effort from beginning to end. For your generosity and support, today and always, I am thankful.

Looking forward to future fundraising events. In the meantime, if you would like to become a monthly donor for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, click here.

On a separate and more personal note, I dedicate today’s post to Dalila Maestre, whose untimely passing on Tuesday has deeply touched us. May she rest in peace and be in God’s glory. Kevin: your angel is watching over you now.

Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
