To the Editor,
Wendy and I want to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated in Zach’s Hope, 2020. We are excited to announce that we surpassed last year’s number of sponsorships by one, making the total for this year 67.
We also beat last year’s number of shirts ordered from 154 to 237! This is no small thing considering the pandemic our nation currently finds itself in.
We are so grateful to God and each of you who either did a sponsorship, purchased a shirt, made a donation or came out with us to walk this past Saturday. In November we will announce the total amount that will be mailed to CureSearch, an organization that divides funds between cancer research hospitals looking for cures for children with cancer.
We also want to give a shout out of gratitude to First Baptist Church of Columbus and Columbus FFA for being our sponsors. We want to thank Jenna Leopold for the design of our shirts and we want to thank Columbus HEB for providing refreshments for individuals who came out to participate in our walk.
