I wanted to share something that appeared in my Inbox this morning from the American Lung Association’s Event Planner, Margaret Ann Mabry:
‘Hey Andy! I hope you all are having a great week! I just looked at the stats for the Climb, and Dylan is only $15 away from $500!! I’m so impressed. Please let her know that everyone who raises $500 gets a special recognition at the Climb. I appreciate all you guys are doing! Can’t wait to see you both on Saturday.”

Isn’t that so cool?
So I wanted to take a minute a publicly thank all our family and friends who have supported little Dylan in her fundraising efforts for the Lung Association. There have been several very very generous gifts to Dylan that have really ‘Wow’d’ us. So thank you to everyone for your kindness and love!
And $15.00 more dollars till she hits the $500 donation mark!
Can you believe that?
I have never done that. It would take me 3 years to raise that much for the ALA. She currently is the 4th highest fundraiser (follow her goal HERE or you can add to it HERE) of all the participating climbers this year. As a team, I Can Beat My Daddy is currently in 6th place, thanks largely to the love shown to Dylan.
Not bad for her first year.
And if you haven’t been following along closely, she actually did that promo spot on the local country music station,
…along with Margaret, the station DJ Garrett Doll and me. It was quite an experience and a lot of fun.
If you are interested you can listen to it here.
But her first radio experience didn’t end there. She was given a tour of the radio station, shown how a radio station actually runs its music on air (very interesting I thought) and then given some radio swag like a Taylor Swift concert t-shirt….
…and the promise to go out on the radio’s customer appreciation catamaran that Sunday.
Again, pretty cool for a little 7 year old.
What Is next for this girl?
Thanks to Garrett and Margaret Ann for getting Dylan on the air! A few of you have suggested, with her fun smile and charm, she would actually be better suited for TV. Hmmmmmmm….
Wish her, I mean, us well on Saturday. And thanks again for all your generosity and the love!
YOU are awesome!
