I did it! 🥳
From June 26 – July 22, I swam 24,350 yards (13.84 miles!) to raise awareness of mental health and Big Orange Heart! Huge thank you to everyone who donated on my fundraising page – we really appreciate the support. My fundraiser reached $609, which is incredible!
The 24k fundraisers were leading up to the second-ever WordFest Live, which was on Friday, July 23. I got a chance to share about my challenge during the event, if you want to check that out. Throughout my swim, I also posted updates on social, using #24kYardsToMentalHealth.
If you missed WordFest Live this time around, you can still register and watch the recordings. Or keep an eye out for the next one! Not everyone enjoys online events, but WordFest is particularly well-tailored for an online format. It’s definitely not just another online conference!
