Our initial goal for our Mansion Fun Run this year was set at $60,000, in conjunction with our 60th Anniversary Celebration...$1,000 for each year of caring for special children.
The response to this campaign has been overwhelming, greatly exceeding our expectations. As of right now, we are at $71,861, with the Fun Run still a couple of weeks away.
Wouldn't you agree with me that we should not stop at where we are now, but that we should raise the bar and go for $80,000?
This year, the Fun Run team is made up of Erma and me, and all the Mansion Kids and staff members. Some will run 1-3 kilometers and others will run further distances of 5-10 kilometers, or more. I am quite sure I can do 5K, but I’m going for 10K, as I would like to accomplish this before I turn 60 in a few weeks.
Here’s how you can help…
You can help us reach our goal of $80,000 by becoming a Fun Run sponsor with a donation of $25, $10, $100, $50 or more. Perhaps you can give $500 or even $1,000. Every gift is important and will be a tremendous blessing, regardless of the amount.
If you can give $50 or more, you’ll receive a fantastic Fun Run T-shirt in celebration of TCM’s 60th Anniversary of showing love and bringing hope to thousands of children. Be sure and let us know your T-Shirt size on the website with your online donation, or if sent in the mail.
If you can help us, please confirm your sponsorship by doing one of the following:
- Go online and make a PLEDGE or DONATION at https://mansionkids.org/give/mansion-fun-run
