6 days left!

October 29, 2018

It’s hard to believe we have only 6 days left in our fundraising campaign for the Terry Wahls Research Fund at the University of Iowa. We’ve raised an astounding $33,272 – and we’re not stopping yet! By the time our campaign closes on Sunday, November 4, we hope to have hit our new stretch goal of $35,000.  


Our current total includes a generous gift from the Dillon Fund and the matching contribution we mentioned in our last update. We are so grateful for these generous donations—and for every single gift that has been made since we launched this campaign four weeks ago.  


As a reminder, you can help us reach our new stretch goal by sharing our campaign page with your friends, family, and anyone who you think might be interested in supporting Terry Wahls’ research. The link to share is:


2 weeks remaining!

October 24, 2018

First, we have to extend a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you for supporting this GOLDrush campaign for Dr. Terry Wahls Research at the University of Iowa. We are overwhelmed by your generosity, and delighted to share that we’ve raise nearly $15,000 in support of her work.


We are excited to announce that we have a matching challenge of $7,000, which means that every gift made in the next two weeks up to $7,000 will be matched one for one. Please take a moment to spread the word by sharing our campaign page with as many people as possible. The link to share is: Share the link on social media, but also consider sharing our page with your friends and family via email.


Thank you, again, for your generosity and for making this campaign a huge success!

An amazing start!

October 03, 2018

Wow! What an exciting start to our fundraising campaign for Dr. Terry Wahls Research at the University of Iowa. We are thrilled to share that we’ve hit our initial fundraising goal of $10,000, and we now have the opportunity to set a stretch goal of $20,000! Thank you for helping us reach this first milestone! 


As many of you know, Dr. Wahls’ research needs much more than $20,000. We are setting small goals throughout this campaign with hopes that we’ll continue to exceed those goals. We want to have the greatest impact on Dr. Wahls’ work possible. Thank you for being on this journey with us.


Please continue to spread the word about our campaign, which will run through Sunday, November 4! By sharing our campaign with your networks, you will help us reach additional supporters and have a direct and positive influence on this fundraising campaign. The link to share is:


Please know that Dr. Wahls and her research team are so grateful for your support. Now let’s reach $20,000!


With gratitude,
