Team leader overcomes fundraising awkwardness
In March Stephanie is leading a team to Portugal. On previous trips she felt awkward about fundraising and paid her own costs, but because this trip is her first as team leader, she took on the Challenge and is fundraising with her co-workers and Facebook friends. She has raised $3,500 and counting! Read her story.
