The Final Final Results from the MS Walks

UPDATED figures are in, and the Wheeler's Wobblers raised $11,270.72 between our two 2015 MS walks in Wilmington and Newark, Delaware. You did a great job again this year, and I want to say "Thank you for walking, donating, and cheering!"

Because this is my last year as team captain, (feel free to volunteer if you want all the fame and glory), I thought I'd recap and give your our final results.  

In the six years that the Wobblers participated in the Delaware MS Walks, we raised almost $55,000. 

We grew from 8 teammates to almost 50. We expanded to participating in two cities. We had walkers from as far away as Pittsburgh (PA), Baltimore (MD), Landenberg (PA), and Middletown (DE).  We had congressmen and doctors (medical and PhD) and people with MS and people who didn't know anything about MS. 

We had fundraisers, a wine tasting, dinners at Ruby Tuesday, and pendant sales. We had corporate sponsors and for a few years had a team t-shirt. 

Of course, what made us famous was our huge team sign that made us the envy of all who gazed upon it (thanks to The Husband).

But most important, we made a lot of connections with the community and had a blast doing it.

Thank you, everyone. And remember, "Wheelers wobble but we don't fall down thanks to YOUR support!"
