Now that the Door County Half Marathon and 5K is behind us, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that supported Team Forge and our fundraising efforts to build a new blacksmith forge at The Clearing.

With your help, the team exceeded its event fundraising goal, raising more than $13, 490 for a new blacksmith forge and metals studio at The Clearing! This was no easy task, and there are many fine folks who deserve a big THANK YOU.

First, thank you to fellow team members Wendy & Jason Dittmer/LaTurner, Sara Frizelle, Carolyn Kimbell, Ron Matousek, Tammy Musiel, Glenna & Stefan Peters, Anka Rinkleff, Mary Ann Rinkleff, Melinda & Bruce Schaufer, Cindy & Mike Schneider, Yvonne & Randy Tyson & Curt Wessel. These folks not only trained in icky winter weather, but they also collected donations and helped raise awareness for The Clearing’s forge. Great job, team!

The Half Marathon and 5K would have seemed a lot longer without the efforts and noise of our enthusiastic cheerleading squad. Thank you to the following friends and family members who provided encouragement along the course: Dick & Pat Dittmer, Henry Frizelle, Bob Kimbell, Louise Matousek, Heidi Rinkleff, Mary Jane Rinkleff, Jaxon Rinkleff & Maria Zurn. You guys were way loud, and we love you for it!

And finally, a big thank you to all of you out there who donated to Team Forge. YOU DID IT! You helped us meet AND beat our event fundraising goal! I thank each and every one of you for your generosity and support. Our team had a great showing on May 6 because we knew all of you were supporting us! THANK YOU!

We’ve posted some event pix on our facebook page, so take a look!
