Thank You- Top 10!


Team Coconutter Strutters has a HUGE thank you to announce!  

With your help, we are one of the top 10 teams at the Michigan event.  We have raised over $32,000, to date.  That's INCREDIBLE!  (If you haven't had a chance to donate, check out the fundraising page for Susie Gallison and Karen Pearson.  They are working on their minimum goal and need to raise $2,300, each.)

To date, you have helped us raise enough money to provide over 260 life-saving mammograms!

We will soon let you know how much money the entire Michigan event has raised or you can join us at closing ceremonies to be the first to find out.  If you are not able to make it out to the event, you can follow our journey on Facebook.  Will will share plenty of pink photo ops along the way!

Thank you for all of your support,
Team Coconutter Strutters

Fundraising Friday - 1 week (MI)


This saying is a perfect fit for our Michigan team this week as they wrap up their fundraising. We have collectively made a HUGE impact on the fight against cancer.  For many of us, this journey represents HOPE for a future without the terrible 'C' word.  

At the time of this post, we are currently at 95% of our goal.  We are also one of the top 10 teams for the Michigan event and can't wait to get out on the route next weekend and tackle those 60 miles!  Please help us get our last few team members to their goal of $2,300.  
Large or Small, we love them all (donations that is!)

Click here to donate to Firecracker Coconut, Susie Gallison.

We hope to see you out on the route next weekend!

Happy Birthday Hazardous!

Today we have a special birthday wish for a nutty coconut on our Michigan team. 

Hazardous Coconut lives up to her name each year as she keeps us laughing uncontrollably all 3 days on the event.  This year is her 3rd event (3-peat) and she walks in memory of her grandmother, aunt and uncle.
