“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
I’m rather proud of how we’ve stayed in the Top 10 of all affiliates since the start of FGB5 season over 2 months ago. Let’s keep pushing to raise even more money for these worthy causes. We’ve surpassed the $21,000 mark but we can still do plenty more!
As a Team Captain who had already met the $150 minimum amount of fundraising to qualify for a t-shirt, I received my t-shirt early and will wear it proudly on Saturday. I have been tasked by the FGB5 organizers to encourage each member of Team CFNYC to work towards hitting that $150 minimum to qualify for a t-shirt. The shirt fits well and looks great and each of you who get one will be able to wear it proudly and reflect on the hard work you did to earn it. So if you aren’t at $150 yet, know that you have until October 1st to get there, so go get cracking and send some emails to your friends and family!
