Thank You! 

We first want to start off by thanking Mr. & Mrs. Harrett, dear family friends in MI, for a wonderful & kind donation they sent to support Athletes in Tandem! It’s truly incredible to have such a strong network of support from many of our friends, family & local businesses. Graham & I have also made a donation & we couldn’t be more excited to have surpassed our original goal of $2000.00. Since we have not had to raise any money since high school fund-raisers, we really were not sure if we could even make our goal, but WE DID! Raising funds & awareness for Athletes in Tandem has been a great experience. Learning more about the organization & getting to know the people who participate has been truly inspiring in itself.
