Days 15 and 16: 101 and 178 Juggles. Plus a Boogie Board and a Donation from Some Really Nice People.

hollissurfing Quick juggling update before I head out to say goodbye to the beach and go to the airport: The day before yesterday was hard because the hotel was setting up tables for a wedding on my usual juggling spot.  I got 101.  Yesterday was better. I got 178 on my second try!

Afterwards, I walked over to get some homemade pancakes on the beach, and a nice girl a year older than me offered me to take this cool boogie board, since her vacation was ending.  Someone had given it to her when she got to Hawaii.  How cool is that?  I had my soccer ball with me, and it turns out that she plays soccer, too, and she also likes to juggle.  The adults she was with were so generous. I told them about Juggling for Jude, and they both took out $20 bills and gave them to my mom!  I was so happy!  Then, I ate my pancake and boogie boarded with my sister for hours.

It’s looking like we will pass the $7,000 mark today, which is so amazing.  We are only $70 short of that amount. Maybe your donation will put us over!  I can’t believe how much support I’ve gotten for this great cause.  The more I learn about St. Jude Hospital, the more I know my hard work is so important.

Thank you for your support, and keep telling your friends, because we have lots more money to raise!  You can donate here or pledge a per-juggle amount on my Facebook page by commenting on the page.  Every dollar helps a child with cancer get treatment for free!
