Hi Robb & Elissa,

 

Many years ago (2004) I fell in love with your website and developed a lifelong interest in theme parks and roller coasters. Through college I lost my interest due to heavy depression and completely forgot about my love of roller coasters. Last year I finally graduated from college and started living my dream of riding all of the rides I always watched your POV's of many years ago.

 

When I saw Coasting for Kids I thought that many people would have no problem signing up for that and didn't even think that there was space left, so I never looked into it. Tonight I looked and saw that only five people had signed up for Michigan's Adventure total and I was heartbroken. Where were all of my fellow coaster fanatics who I grew up envying? These people MUST be able to support a cause like this and would love pay to marathon coasters like this!

 

I put $300 down to this cause and will be perhaps the sole supporter of team TPR on that day for Michigan's Adventure. I'm almost ashamed that it's such a small amount compared to what Theme Park Review has provided me with over these many years but I want to start doing my part in giving back. Thank you Robb and Elissa, if either of you want to ride in Michigan with me I would be honored to put the money together and support you.

^ Wow! That is amazing! I was wondering if we would get a rider for MI and I'm glad it turned out to be someone like yourself! Please post the link to your FirstGiving page so we can make you a banner!

Excellent ! I am so glad to see that you are coming back and participating this year. I really wish we could get more participants at the CGA event this year, not only because it is is a great cause. But also to show our support for a park that has been really supportive of the coaster community the last 8-12 months.

 

 

 

If anyone is looking for someone to donate to, please consider my friend who has a ways to go to get to minimum despite the fact that I KNOW she has been trying! Haven't made minimum myself either, but I am certain I am going to be fine. Her page is:

Thanks folks.

 

Got you and your friend covered! Have fun!

Man I have been slacking. I need to really hit the pavement hard to raise some money! I could definitely use some help. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/shawncoomer/KnottsBerryFarm20134

 

Thank you Robb & Elissa for all of the support! I am so excited to be involved in this event once again. Give Kids The World is such a great charity and I will make up for my lack of fundraising over the next couple of weeks.

 

I got you covered for the minimum $75 donation. Don't stop now though. Hit that pavement and raise some more!

I can definitely use some help too. Every little bit helps!

 

This is my first year participating but I'm really looking forward to it. It should be a lot of fun and it's definitely a worthy cause.

 

Got you to the $75 minimum. But, don't stop now. Good luck!

Hey Gang!

 

I still have a few bucks left to donate to some fellow TPR'ers! If you have not reached the $75 minimum fundraising requirement and you are planning to physically attend the Coasting for Kids event, just reply to this thread and I will do my best to help you out! First come, first served!

I just did a quick check, and Team TPR has raised $27,234 for Give Kids the World--that's great! I'd love to see us top $30,000 before the event on June 9.
