Welcome to the “Team 41” Fundraising Page for the 2019 Samaritans 5k.
My family created Team 41 as a special way to remember and honor our #41, Kevin Jurgens, this year. This year is the 5 year memorial since we lost our guy. Kevin had many talents and many things that made him happy, but there was nothing quite like watching him play football and seeing the genuine joy on his face when he was on the field. When Kevin played football, he proudly wore the number 41 and he always played with his heart.
My family wants to honor Kevin by recognizing one of the things that brought him such happiness and brought us such pride. We are, after all, a football family. So in Kevin’s memory, we are asking that 1000 of his friends, family, our friends and his community each to donate $41 to the Samaritans 5k.
Kevin’s home community is the Town of Needham. Team Needham was created through the Samaritans many years ago to fight suicide and remember all the members of our community that we have lost to suicide over the years. Kevin was a part of Team Needham at its beginning and would want Team 41 to honor and remember all of of Team Needham, especially Kevin’s dear friend Greg and our friends, Jason, Kyle and Michael.
If you want to participate in the 5k run/walk, the registration fee is $35, so we ask that you donate an extra $6 to make the total $41. No need to register and then also donate an additional $41 (that would make $76 and totally not on theme and exactly what I did by accident!). If you cannot join us for the run/walk, we are so appreciative of your $41 donation. No need to cover the $3 transaction fee or whatever because that would bring the total up to $44 or so.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, Shannon Jurgens (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
