Hello friends and family, christy here.
I am back in San Antonio a little sunburned and exhausted from the weekend in FL, but happy! (My sister, sister-in-law, and good friend Deb are all still stuck in airports getting home, so I’m the lucky one). Yesterday was our nonprofit, One Leg Up On Life’s first event: a paddleboard event right near where I was hit by a boat 4 months ago. It was really important to me to be back in the area where it happened and doing something that I love- being out on the water with friends -to show that although my life is drastically different – there are a lot of things still the same!
Overall, the event raised around $5,000 between registration fees (80 people registered- so many more then we expected, so we ran out of shirts), the silent auction, donations, and 10% of food sales during the event! Our online donations are up to $10,000- so we are well on our way to get our first kid, Kevins, a leg!! Thank you everyone who came out to the event or supported and prayed for us from afar.
Gofundme.com/oneleguponlife is still going for those that haven’t gotten a chance to support us yet. 🙂
I’m pretty tired so I’m keeping this short, but here are some photos from the weekend:
My PA from that first weekend at the hospital made it out with his family even though they’re moving to Haiti this week. It was great to see them
By the end of the day my leg was hurting so I took it off- but I have great friends who give me piggy-back rides when I can’t walk anymore 🙂
