enough to have a Fitbit that tells me I average 14,000-15,000 steps daily. Every day.
dawn on me how lucky I am - and I’ll think about the gifts I’ve been given - and often I’ll tremble a bit, and my eyes will well up when I think about Kari and her family, about Alex, and about the medical folks and family and friends who helped me through some seriously crazy $hit.

to 120%??? And since Alex gave it to me, my kidney function has been better than it’s been in the past 30+ years! And my Alex is doing awesomely with her one kidney, and her Matt, and their two beautiful little boys, Eli and Noah!!!
place soon. I will register early on October 16th to create our “Kari’s Klimbers” team (and commit to raising $1000) so that our team will be available to join at 8:00am on Wednesday, November 1st and there are no delays in registration. DO NOT SIGN UP BEFORE 8:00AM ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1st – if you do, you too will be committing to raise at least $1000. Registering at or after 8:00am on Wednesday, November 1st
does not commit you to raising anything beyond your registration fee (though, I’m always grateful if you choose to do so!!!) Drop me a line if you’re interested in the Hustle this coming year – or just join our team on November 1st… I’ll send you a reminder with links to the registration page a few days before November 1st. Remember – the full climb usually sells out pretty quickly.
also let me know that quitting didn’t seem to be an option for me.
you. And more special than the money will ever mean to me – you’ve helped me build a little platform to tell the world about Kari, and about Alex, and the gifts they’ve given – and you’ve helped me tell so many others about organ donation.
means everything to me. I would have never generated that much excitement alone – I would have never generated that much awareness without all of you.
