Dave & Veronica’s Race To 1k: And The Winner Is…
For the month of May, Dave and Veronica set a wager with each other… to meet one thousand new friends out in the community. The response was overwhelming! Both Dave and Veronica were invited to meet the most amazing (and fun!) people.
Dave’s strategy was: “The bigger, the better…” He was invited to some pretty big events! Dave was able to meet 300 new friends when St. Joseph’s Hospital celebrated their employee appreciation picnic! Although Veronica led the race for the most part, Dave made HUGE strides with big numbers.
Veronica took more of a “Slow and steady wins the race” approach… Small groups at a lot of places. She put a lot of miles on her Prius V!! But just like Dave, she had the opportunity to meet many different people :)
However, only one would be declared the winner at the end of the race…
FINAL TALLY: Dave 1,022 Veronica 1,029!
The difference was only by 7!!! Since Veronica slightly edged Dave out, Dave sang the National Anthem, accompanied by a tuba played by musician Alex Belliveau. Dave was a great sport. In the end, both Dave & V won by making new friends in Tampa Bay!
