So far donations for the Syttende Mai run this year have totaled $1180, which means I'll be joggling two of the 20 miles. $320 donated by Friday will increase my joggling miles to three (I'm joggling one mile for each $500 folks donate).

I'm excited about this, because this means that for the year we've raised a total of $6000 to establish a rolling security deposit account for newly arriving refugees in Milwaukee! Thanks to all who have contributed.


  1. That is an interesting way to do a jogging fund raiser, unless someone give you a million dollars.

    What type of refugees are you getting in Milwaukee?

    I grew up in Milw. Back before we heard of refugees.

    I'm currently away from home, visiting a little town 70 miles north of Milwaukee, along Lake Michigan.

  2. Refugees relocated in Milwaukee have come from such places as Burma (Myanmar), Sudan, Albania, Liberia, and many other places.

  3. Good luck on your run Clint. I wrote a short blog entry about it at my joggler site.

  4. Hey, are you talking about jogging as in running, or tossing balls into the air. Or is there something else I'm missing here?

  5. Doing both at the same time, jogging and juggling simultaneously.
