Discussion: Junior Fundraiser -- MF2

Back in April 2015 a whole bunch of folks made donations in support of the USA's junior program, an effort that became known as the marathon fundraiser. Here was the original post proposing the idea. Read the comments for a sense of how wonderfully it turned out. And here are the final numbers. As I said, lots of folks pitched in.

The funds were used over the past three years in support of our junior teams to JWOC and also to the North Americans. It made a difference, not only the funds but also the awareness of the support that existed for the junior program.

It is time for marathon fundraiser 2 -- MF2.

Details are here. I hope there will be lots of pledges -- everything helps, large and small. Pledges can be added to the comments for that post, or, if you wish to stay anonymous, e-mail them to me (

Have a look. And let's see what we can do.

Time for an update --

Doing the math, which some devious minds among the donors has made more complicated than I had expected... :-)

If I make it to 5,000 miles, we're on track to raise about $4,500. Which is great, thanks to all who have signed up so far. But I'm sure we can do better.

1. Remember, everything helps, large or small.

2. And it's not too late to join in. Far from it, pledges are possible anytime from now until the end of December. Or even after that...

3. Feel free to be creative.

4. The bottom line is it all helps our junior program.
