This is what is going on.
Right now we have 5 people signed up for the games. We need people to make the commitment to go there are only 114 days left. The more we have going the better the fundraising should be.

We have a fundraising page set up under the Chris Klug Foundation at crowdrise web site here is the link to the page
http://www.crowdrise.com/TeamRockyMtn/fundraiser/chrisklugfoundationGo to the page and set up individual fund raising pages add a picture or two.
Those who are not going we are hoping that you can help with fundraising activities for the team maybe even make a few donations.
If yo know of any organization who may want to donate please feel free to give them my contact info.

We do have some fingers in the pie for funds but nothing solid yet.
We also are working with the TakeJake.org group but we don't have a fundraising page set up with them yet. When this happens it will donating to the group into a bank account I have set up. If you run into people who want to write a check make it out to Team Rocky Mountain and mail it to me or go to a Community Bank of Colorado to deposit it.
On our web site Justin has put up a slide show so please check it out here is the link.

Hello Team Rocky Mountain,

Hope every one is feeling well.
We still are not connected to a non profit. if anyone has a connection to any organization who may want to help us out please feel free to contact them.
Also any fundraising ideas would be great.
The Transplant Games of America site is open for registration. 
The fee will be 140.00 until March 16th then goes up 20.00 until April 30th.
If you register select all your sports up to four. The 5k race is considered a sport.
Not sure if we have enough for team sports. I believe we can do basketball maybe not volleyball.
Right now I believe we have ten athletes who want to attend. I am hoping more people will want to go.
I believe these games are going to be fun and successful. The organizers are working hard and we should be there to support them while promoting organ donation awareness.

If you know of other transplant people who may want to participate let them know how exciting the games are.
I would like to schedule a team meeting for the 31st of March a Saturday.
Mike P could you send me info to contact the Crazy Merchant about meeting there?
Link to the transplant games web: www.transplantgamesofamerica.org

Link to team web site check this out and add some content. Does anyone have a team pic from the Madison games maybe one of the team receiving the trophy we can put on the transplant games web site oh yeah lets defend the title.

I am hoping people will get more excited about the games.
Feel free to email or call me with your thoughts.
Live o n the Positive Side of Life
