Thumbs up 90% - Thanks

This group has been incredible in reaching for this goal.
When we started this we had to raise $33.33 per day to reach our goal and to date we have raised $45.00 per day. Now we just need $10 per day for the last 10 days to accomplish our goal.
I hope you all have enjoyed this so far. If you want to have a picture on the collage please e-mail to me as I will start working on that this coming weekend.(scottmschmidt@yahoo.com) I am not sure which day I will be heading down but I will let you all know just in case you want to take a flight to Furnace Creek for the day.

Also, if you still want to donate, here is a link on how to do it. You can do it either by mail or PayPal.

Wow Dan, with that pledge we have reached our goal.

$1001

I want to personally thank everyone who has donated so far. We have a pretty long list and it doesn't matter if you contributed $1, $5, or $100, thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond to this cause. Cancer has affected all of us in some way and it is nice to know we are helping out a few that are currently fighting this battle.

I think we can beat our goal over the next few days.

Again, awesome everyone!

Scott,
Unless you have had a loved one with cancer (my case, wife) you can't understand the physical and emotional traumas associated with the disease. Then you add in the isolation that the folks in Death Valley experience. Gotta be pretty tough! it's a long way to go for treatment.
Thanks again Scott, for recognizing the need and responding to it and rallying the troops. Dan

I'm sorry you had to deal with cancer so close to you. Unfortunately, cancer took my wife's father two years ago (55 years old). Everyone fighting cancer needs all the support possible.
Thanks again.

Default Operation - Deliver Money, Friday at 1:30pm

Just wanted to send out a quick note that I will be flying down to Furnace Creek tomorrow (Friday, May 1) around 1:30pm from SLC. Should be about a 2 hour 40 min. flight with a headwind.

I will post the final numbers and picture later tonight.

Default Final Numbers and Photo Collage

Well the final numbers are in and our group raised $1200 for the Death Valley Walk for Life!
$1200

Thank you all for joining in on this together. I called Sharon last night to let her know what our group had done and she was speechless. She had just given out a $500 gas card to cover transportation for treatment costs to Las Vegas and their funds were running very low. She said over and over that we cannot understand how much this is going to help them. I can't wait to see her tomorrow. I will be sure to give all the kudos to all of you when I present the money and photo.

Here is our collage. I have it framed (11X17) and she will have this to remember our group by. Not everyone is pictured and some wanted to remain anonymous. If I left you out I am so sorry, I did my best to include everyone that submitted a photograph.

The pictures are very special. Some are of our airplanes, our family, ourselves, cancer survivors and friends and family that lost the battle.

I'll follow up again this weekend with the delivery photos.
