And for transparency - I manage a lot of the day to day funds needed through my personal account. I actually front a lot of the costs for the team and these funds help reimburse me. I record all donations and expenses to keep track of the balance for the team. Any unused funds at the end of the year will be transferred to our TJ Vikings Fund  account.

Thank you for your support!
