We're almost at $45,000!!!

Robert Socini works for Cirque du Soleil (in Las Vegas) and he has convinced them to increase their previous $1,000 donation by another $1,500 for a total of $2,500. Now THAT'S putting those corporate connections to work!

We also have a collected Silver-level donation from the friends of Kevin Leroy Binkley in his memory. Kevin died in a motorcycle accident and loved diving. We also have an Silver donation from longtime supporters Eo Ong & Paul Thompson. Plus we have some more Bronze donors.

Everything adds up and as we are now inside of one week to go, we really need your help to finish strong. The Challenge represents a large percentage of what the final number is so whatever you can contribute will be appreciated.

So May Day, May Day!! (Well, May 1st IS May Day.) Let's start off May with a bang. Who's next? Who will push us along????
