Hi Everyone,

On November 29th the folks at River Woods had a gathering in the Co-op for me to see the members again. I did a little slideshow and told some stories about my trip. around 30 people came and I got a lot of hugs and handshakes: the event was very touching. The Ride for River Woods fundraiser raised $5,000 in total which is awesome! When I first got the ball rolling with fundraising for River Woods I was hoping to raise $3,000, and to nearly double that is fantastic.

I was given some cards from River Woods and a giftcard to Mec!  IMG_6766 IMG_6765

Everyone at River Woods was very kind and the gratitude expressed was flattering. A big thank you to everyone who came out!
