The following is the success story of Owen’s Odyssey, a team participating in the London Walk for Muscular Dystrophy. They weren’t sure what to expect after setting ambitious fundraising goals for themselves but it ended up paying off and the team went beyond their expectations. Aim high! You know what what will happen until you ask. Congrats Owen’s Odyssey! The second half of the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy 2012 season kicks off Saturday, August 4th!
London’s 2012 Walk for Muscular Dystrophy was an outstanding success! With your generous support our team – Owen’s Odyssey –raised $6720 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada and Owen raised a good chunk of that bringing in an astounding $4195. Team Owen’s Odyssey was awarded the Top Fundraising Team and Owen was also the Top Individual Fundraiser, thanks to all of you! He was very honoured to accept a trophy for the team’s accomplishments.
When we undertook this initiative, we were a little nervous that setting our team fundraising target of $3000 and Owen’s personal goal of $2500 might be too aggressive. Needless to say we were overwhelmed as the donations came in and the targets we had cautiously set were crushed! We are so fortunate to have such amazing friends and family who support and stand behind us as we tackle the challenges of muscular dystrophy. Every single donation that came in was a source of support and encouragement to us as a family and moved us deeply.
