The amount raised in 2016 exceeded our $300,000 goal and our expenses were reduced over the previous year. We have reviewed the operating expense for the upcoming year and will continue with the old model of being run predominantly by a strong volunteer base. And we are always looking for ways to reduce our expenses.
We looked to our 10th anniversary year as a time to celebrate our past success and to raise more money for research in 2016. Our longer term goal is to grow the walk and increase our donation dollars.
