Personal Page? Well...sort of :)
This really isn't a personal page about us because the whole reason for this page is MICHAEL and his amazing family. At first glance, you might think "The Donner Party" isn't the best choice for a team name because it may remind you of a fateful event involving American pioneers in 1847 (!), but we think it's the perfect name because
(1) it's kind of funny that it makes you think of the fateful event of 1847 (!)
(2) more importantly Michael, Claudine, and Alex are very much like a party - they lift your spirits, spread joy and hope, and are so ridiculously funny and fun to be around! :) Seriously, they are the kind of family that inspires other families to live life to the fullest and do whatever it takes to make others feel loved and happy.
So, this isn't really a personal page about us - those who choose to walk and fundraise to help with pancreatic research - it's about WHY we walk and WHO we walk for. Knowing that we can make a tiny difference in this dumpster fire of a year called 2020, knowing we can let Michael and family know they are LOVED...that's what makes this personal!
We have far surpassed what we expected to receive mostly because so many of the Donners friends and family have stepped up to support Michael. It is truly a blessing and we are so happy that we will be walking knowing that you are with us!
