Think For Yourself Fest

My brother Zach set up a festival with his Independent Political Club to raise money for Leukemia (please visit and donate as well as engage the student population towards civic duty. A few good friends of mine, especially my really good friends from home in Our Fair City came to perform. Jaime, Brian, and I were able to set up a table with information about our run as well as have information to get people to register to be organ donors. This was the first opportunity (hopefully of many) that we were able to do this and we got several people to say they would seriously consider registering. Additionally, that night a girl I knew had told me that she had registered because of our run. This was such an awesome feeling to know that in the future we can potentially make a difference in the life of a person. Made me realize much more that success for this can not be measured in minutes, miles completed, states traveled through, but solely on lives changed. Chris BLR

Just wanted to take a second to express our thanks for everyone who has offered help and support so far. In talking with others about our endeavor, it has been more than humbling to see that outpouring and desire of people to offer help and assistance. Even the simplest words of encouragement have been greatly valued by us and we have taken them to heart. There have been a number of people who have gone above and beyond giving a significant amount of time to give us the necessary knowledge we lack, so that we have the best chance of succeeding when we start out there. Rather than list the specific individuals and risk leaving out someone from a temporary lapse in memory, I do want to make it clear that we do remember you all and thank you from the innermost part of our beings. We will definitely continue to need help as our endeavor continues, but we appreciate everything so far, and will continue to do our best so that the help was not in vain. Thank you all. Chris BLR
