Moving the goal posts!

It's been a FANTASTIC week for Al's Run.

8 days ago, we started at zero, and with some fantastic support from the Marquette Basketball community, we've smashed last year's record of $1650, and broke right on through the goal of $2,000 this year.

Hmm. What to do with the next 5 days? Should we sit on our butts waiting for Al's Run to start? Is that what the Americans did when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO.

So .. while I'm thrilled, through the support of so many, including a big donation from Sir Larry to push us over the original goal .. let's move the goal posts.

How about $2,750.   5 days to go!
