Al's Run Wrap 2008

What a year.  We are really honored by the 90 people who dug into their wallets and donated to Al's Run.

By Friday, I'd moved the goal posts 3 times, and the Marquette Basketball community rose to the occasion every time.  Friday's donations came in so fast, I gave up trying to figure out where to set the goal.

We ended at $4,430 .. more than doubling last year's record.   Amazing!

I filmed a little "Thank you" video that's going to win an Emmy.  (Sound needed)

And here's a great slide-show from the Run. There's a great shot of 17,000 people marching down Wisconsin Ave.:
