Aloha mai kakou,

Kevin said it best:

"We are determined to find joy and happiness and make THAT the priority in our lives. We will find moments and adventures that challenge us to LIVE and EXPERIENCE. After all, this is how we all should live, isn't it?"

So let's send Angie (and Kevin) on a trip of a lifetime!  

One of the things that Angie expressed is if she could go anywhere in the world, she would like to go to New Zealand (Aotearoa - Land of the Long White Cloud): A place full of stunning beauty, magic, diversity, Polynesians, and hobbits.  

Angie is a true example of courage, strength, grace, and humor in the face of adversity.  All of us (family, new friends, old friends, crossfitters, co-workers) have our own special stories and shared experiences with this wonderful and amazing person.  We know firsthand that there is a uniqueness to  Angie.  She lights up a room and and can bring a smile like no other.

She is also a warrior and an all around bad ass. There is no doubt that she will fight on and get through this latest challenge as she has done twice before.  This current challenge is nothing more than a crazy WOD that she will dominate.

Life truly is about the experiences, adventures, and living everyday to the fullest.  It's also about LOVE and we all LOVE this woman,  Let's join together with our collective positivity, joy, and good intentions to make Angie's dream trip a reality.

Get your bags packed, Angie because we are sending you and your Hobbit to New Zealand!

'O wau no me ke ha'a ha'a.  Amama, ua noa, lele wale akua la e.

Aloha gang,

All I can say is, AMAZING! As we close in on our goal, I would like to offer a message from Angie:

"This experience is 'UNREAL'! I have been watching the donations come in and reading all of your amazing comments. To see myself through other people's eyes is somewhat surreal. I am honestly humbled. I have never thought of myself as a great or inspirational person. I am unbelievably appreciative of everyone's generosity and kind words. I will fight on, seek new adventures, and never take any moment for granted. Thank you so much!"

And just a follow up note. This has been a joyous experience for me in light of the grim circumstances surrounding it. I also appreciate the little notes that I have received and I am so happy to have played a tiny part, but we all made this happen! Because this page is circulating so widely, a decision was made to increase our goal amount. All funds received exceeding our original goal will be used for Angie's medical care.

Me ke aloha,
MG

Aloha all,

I just wanted to share that Angie is blown away by the outpouring of love. I personally am not surprise by the generosity of each and every one of you. Thank you for lending your support to this endeavor. I don't know all of you but I am grateful to share this experience with all of you. There has been some discussion as to raising our fundraising goal. Just know that every dollar we make, whether we meet or exceed our goal, will go towards the health and happiness of our dear friend. Once again, thank you a hundred times over.

Me ka ha'a ha'a,
MG

Aloha to all,

The money raised thus far in just 2 short hours is a testament to how amazing our friend, Angie is.

I specifically and intentionally left the "C" word out of the narrative because: 1) regardless of prognosis, Angie is alive and living each moment to its fullest, 2) she is a fighter and has successfully beat illness twice before, 3) I will not speak power to the word, 4) I want this trip to be a celebration of LOVE.

LOVE: The most powerful force in the universe. It transcends time and space. In this moment, I would like all of us to focus that force towards this woman.

Thank you all for your kind words and generosity. Although I am the point person for this particular project, know that Angie and Kevin will have full control of all funds and final say on how it is spent.

'O wau no,
MG
