Thank You to all the participants, volunteers, donors, etc. who helped make Weights for Wayne a huge success!  We raised $2000 in support of pancreatic cancer and had a blast doing it.  A big shout out to DJ and JC for doing such a great job organizing and preparing Alpha to be on point yesterday, great job!  Today is the last day to purchase a shirt from Custom Ink with proceeds going to our charity, https://www.customink.com/fundraising/weights-for-wayne .  Thank you again and we hope to make next year even bigger and better than Saturday.
