My Brother has (mistakenly) joined Team TPR, while trying to donate to my page. . . LOL

 

he's not going to be at the event, and at the end of the day, his $30 donation still goes to this fantastic charity.

 

and since he joined Team TPR - even tho in error -- his donation counts towards the team total: so we're over $1600 !

 

yay!

 

 

EDIT: C4K "fixed" my Brother's error, so now Team TPR coasting at Fiesta Texas is accurate.

 

oh, and earlier this evening? we passed $2K in the Team TPR donation for Coasting For Kids at SFFT!

Hello, I will be participating in Coasting for Kids again this year (4 time veteran) at Kennywood, along with my girlfriend Kylie (she'll be signed up soon). I really love GKTW and was fortunate enough to volunteer last September for a couple days. What an amazing experience. Any help will be appreciated, of course! I really think Team TPR can win top team at Kennywood!

Girlfriend just signed up for Coasting for Kids at Kennywood. This is her 2nd year doing it and she volunteered at the Village last year and loved, loved, loved it! If anyone wants to give her an initial budge, I'm sure that would be appreciated! Looking forward to seeing Team TPR on September 1st (crossing my fingers for Steel Curtain).

Greetings, Team TPR!! First and foremost, I want to apologize, as my initial intention was to be way more active in this thread about the awesome revival of this FANTASTIC event!! Alas, life very much got in the way of that, but I'm here now to hopefully post frequently and drum up support for the final event of the bunch - Coasting for Kids at Kennywood!!

 

I want to give a huge THANK YOU first to Robb and Elissa for again partnering up with this tremendous charity! GKTW is truly phenomenal! Also, a BIG thanks as well to those who already participated at some of the other parks while waving the Team TPR Banner! In particular, I'm referring to:

 

  • Andrew at Legoland Florida ($101 raised!)
  • Bert and Jake, who ROCKED SFFT! (An amazing combined $2,202 raised!!)
  • Emily and Michael at Story Land (with a healthy $408 raised combined!)

 

You riders are all FANTASTIC!! THANK YOU!! And now, we've reached the final event on this year's schedule, where Team TPR has its BIGGEST representation! As Taylor pointed out above, Team TPR is now within $70 of the TOP TEAM!!! Absolutely AWESOME!! Thus far, Team TPR has already raised $2,327 for GKTW!! That means Team TPR as a whole has raised over $5,000 during Coasting for Kids! Folks, that's enough to fund a wish!!

 

Also impressive is the response that has poured out in general for Kennywood's event! With a staggering $27,126 raised (and still climbing!), the support has been remarkable! In addition, although the Top Fundraiser has pulled away with an insane total, I think it would be amazing for TPR if members from our team took spots #2 and #3! And right now, that's TOTALLY possible!! Taylor currently has a super impressive total of $724, good for #3, just behind the #2 fundraiser! My own fundraising has also been productive thus far, showing a respectable $577, currently good enough for 5th on the top fundraiser list! Adding in my offline donations of $65, that jumps my total to $642, which puts me right in the mix with Taylor to get those two spots! Can we do it??

 

Well, that's where you fine folks at TPR come in! Let's grab those #2 and #3 positions, along with being the Top Fundraising Team at the event that is raising a ton for GKTW!! And shoot, let's go for it, and try to hit $6,000 raised in total across the parks TPR has participated in while we're at it!!

 

I know that personally I would greatly appreciate any support any of you may want to throw to my fundraising page here: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1282888&pg=personal&fr_id=1886

 

Here's Taylor's page as well: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1017239&pg=personal&fr_id=1886

 

You can also support any of the Kennywood Team TPR members here: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?pg=team&fr_id=1886&team_id=6872

 

I'll try to keep this topic updated as we enter the final stretch run! GO TEAM TPR!!

^^That's awesome!

 

We've thrown some money your way and I'll also throw some money to the Miller girls! If anyone else wants to donate please do so soon!

 

I think this link should take you to the people on Team TPR riding at Kennywood: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?team_id=6872&pg=team&fr_id=1886

I've signed up this year as well! Can't wait to see some familiar faces back at Kennywood this weekend!

 

http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1015285&pg=personal&fr_id=1886

 

Did you join Team TPR? I don't see you listed on our page yet?

 

Yes - please let me know. You currently aren't on the Team TPR team but I can move you over and that would increase your team total by $366. Feel free to reply to the email I sent yesterday and it just takes one click.

Elissa,

I signed up from my phone and I probably messed up but Steven, I just emailed you about getting that taken care of!

 

Thank you for letting me know!

^ Wahoo!! Welcome aboard!

 

That's also a nice bump to the Team TPR total!! Thank you! GO TEAM GO!!!

 

Also, for anyone else doing some last minute fundraising for those tail end donations (there's always a bunch of those), consider using the following video from GKTW.....I've always felt like it's a good snapshot of what they do and some stories of who they've helped, along with the founder's story of how this magical place came to be!! It has usually worked well for me, so please feel free to post it to your socials, email it to friends/family, etc.

My apologies for the double post (though I feel this thread is worthy of bending that rule a bit! ), but I wanted to post a quick update that Team TPR at Kennywood has now opened up a bit of a lead in the race for Top Fundraising Team!!! GREAT JOB, everyone!! Let's keep the foot on the gas and finish strong!

 

Also, our team is now only $77 away from hitting an amazing $3,000 raised for GKTW!!! Who wants to help us get there?

 

You can donate to a Team TPR member from here: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?team_id=6872&pg=team&fr_id=1886

 

Thanks for the support, everyone!
