As most of you know- Kaci's car did not win the Ford Motor Company contest. She did however come in 6th place- just one place short of going to the finals.
We are so proud of her and thankful to all of our wonderful friends, family and even complete strangers who donated to her car and more importantly this wonderful cause! This contest raised over $43,000!! Kaci's car raised $2,255.00! Amazing!
Ford Motor Company sent us an email tonight with all of the names of everyone who made a donation. We want to thank all of you!
Thank you to the following people:
Dominic Ramirez, Linda Schultz, Patricia Johnson, Mrs. Peterson, Cindy Bracken, Leah Leerssen, Laura and Ali McGovern, Denise Simons, Margaret Cromwell, PaPa and Grandma Dee, Elizabeth Doyle, Christopher Hall and Holly, Sherry Smith, Dot Borchgardt, the Walker Family, Rob Johnston, Bj Rosow, Auntie and Bubba Hargrave, The Crowley family, Thuy Tran, Michael Berry, Bobbie Wisnoski, Jennifer Yeatts, Margaret Mallard, Christi Borchgardt, Uncle Chad, David Murray, Aunt Amber and Uncle Mark, Phillip Bogucki, John Welch, Linda and Billy Keeton, Melissa Enochs, Michelle Hall, Josh Hargrave, Aunt Ginny Hill, Diane Wischnewsky, and Brad Finch!!
I know most of these names- there are however, a few that I do not know. Complete strangers who are touched by Kaci's story - or perhaps their life or someone they love is also affected by diabetes.
I say thank you to all of you with all of my heart. We did not win this contest-but DIABETIC RESEARCH won!
We continue to HOPE!
Thank you again, and just remember....
