Climb California Challenge Update: Day Two

March 19, 2007

Pledges have been trickling in from colleagues and my train folks. How cool! That’s an important lesson: if it’s for a good cause and you have a relationship with the people you work with, it can’t hurt to let them know what you’re up to.

New Donations: $195 online, 80 offline
Subtotal: $375
Pending: $80 offline to collect, $80 Employer Matching Gifts.
Training: Off day

I’m not sure how the Employer Matching works exactly but some companies will match donations that their employees make. The matching gifts I’ve seen on my tracking list shows that the matches are 100%! That’s a great way to make your charitable giving dollars go farther.

  1. I climb any where from 20 to 40 floors of stairs a day, you just gotta pace your self. Good luck!
    Getting lured into these events always sound better than it is. My buddy is trying to talk me into a century this year. I have to raise $ (or pay out of pocket) and then endure 100 miles on my bicycle. Yeah, I’ll just sit on that invitation for a while.

  2. Oy, really? I definitely should have hit the stairs more in the TWO weeks I had to prepare, but I’ll really try not to blow out in the first third. After all, I’m a sprinter, not a marathoner!
