Starting at midnight, the Ronald McDonald House of Central Georgia will be sponsored by YOU.
Well, technically, it says “by Jason and Jana Anthoine” but really, it was YOU.
So many of you donated to my half marathon fundraising earlier in the year to the tune of $5045.00. Our Charlie’s Angels team of three raised $10,384.30. All going to the Ronald McDonald House of Central Georgia.
A few years ago, when I was actually serving on the Board of Directors, The House started a program called 365 Days of Caring.
It costs approximately $1000 per day to open the doors to serve the 13 families who can use The House nightly. Individuals or groups can support The House by sponsoring a day (or days).
After reaching the $2500 mark, we were given the opportunity to sponsor a day in the 365 Days of Caring program.
Obviously, I chose May 21.
So on Tuesday, May 21, The Ronald McDonald House will be run by all of you who helped support me in my goal to run 13.1 miles. It will be supported by all of you who knew Charlie, who never knew Charlie, who have met us in real life, who only know us online, who are friends and family and people who were met only a few hours before the race started.
May 21 is truly the Day That Love Built.
And for that, and for you, I am thankful.
