It’s been over two weeks since we launched the tour. So far the tour has been very great, not just for me personally, but for everybody and every school I’ve been too. The first school I went to was Chesaning Middle School in Chesaning, Michigan. They were a great group and I also challenged them to raise more than $750 for the fundraising. If they are successful in completing the challenge, I promised to dye my goatee green for the remainder of the tour. The other schools I went to Anderson Middle School in Berkley, Bellaire School in Bellaire, TC Central High School and TC West Middle School in Traverse City, I have also challenged them all as well. If they are successful in their challenges, their names will go on the RV. I believe that they all can be successful in the fundraising challenge.
The media coverage for the tour has been unreal I can’t be thankful enough for how much the media has covered the tour. Not long ago I was in Flint at Carmen Ainsworth High School where I was on ABC 12’s live morning show. It was a great experience and a lot of fun doing that, hopefully its practice for me down the road to appear on other morning shows.
This week was kind of a quite one, but next week the tour picks right back up and will be crazy busy until the schools break for Christmas. Stay tuned for continued updates on the tour as it will continue to keep growing and become bigger than what it is now.
Also for those of you who haven’t heard, I am in the final 3 for the Pistons Game Changer of the Year Award. Voting ends on Nov.15th. Please vote everyday for me and you can vote more than once on your computers, iPhone, iPad, etc. Please help me and spread the word. Thank you and God Bless!
