Off to China for the Hefei International Marathon

My team of five Columbus Marathon Ambassadors had our big fundraiser in October at Land-Grant Brewing Co. We collected donations through raffle ticket sales, a silent auction, and from a portion of drink sales. It was a fun event, and the evening's take will definitely help to off-set our travel costs.
