Joel's Giants 2017 REACH Rally Fundraising Page

Hi, I'm Joel! I'm 16 and I'm a pretty cool guy. My team has been named Joel's Giants since I first had one in 2004 at my very first Buddy Walk right here in Paris, Texas. I've been away in North Dakota for the last 7 years and my, how I have changed! Now, at 5 foot tall, I'm finally catching up to my GIANT personality! I'd love to have as many friends as I can join me for the walk this year...but if you can't be here in person, be here in spirit by donating to my team!

    Fundraising Goal:    $1,000     

So far, I have raised:   $245
