I do not know what to do…. I signed up for the Joints in Motion Team to walk the Half Marathon with and for David. Upon signing up, a congratulatory message was sent that informed me that I would soon receive a training packet and all the information I would need. Since then I have been walking every day trying to, albeit slowly, get myself ready for this event. I began letting people know that I will be participating, so that when I receive all the info I can begin the actual fundraising.
I just received the info email this evening. I knew that a team must raise $2600. However I did not know that it is in in deadlined increments and if we do not make them, my bank card is charged that amount. I can’t do that. What do I do? Do I call the $130 I already donated a good contribution and call the whole thing a good idea? I knew we had to fly ourselves there but I discovered that we have to pay Park admission.
I don’t think it is financially responsible for me to continue with this, but David knows how committed I’ve been to doing it for him. Am I letting him down if I don’t do it? Will he understand if I don’t? With a summer class, teaching summer camp, student teaching, fall classes, and training for the marathon…. I don’t think I can make the fund raising deadlines and I know I can’t have it come out of my bank account. Plus I would still have to fly us to Florida and get us into Disney… We’re supposed to be Going for Br0ken not going broke.
What should I do?
