First, nearly 600 people have donated almost $45,000. We’re going to keep raising money on the same page through the Crescent City Classic on April 7th. ‘Team Tripp’ will rock the streets of New Orleans once again.
Second, some area businesses were a big part of the fundraising effort. Massage Envy Spa led the way with a $2,500 donation. Owner Brian Grenrood contacted me early on and wanted to be part of this. He helped get the ball rolling.
The largest single contribution came anonymously — $10,000 — two days before the half marathon.
Thanks to everyone who donated. You’re helping make a difference.
