When I arrived for setup on Saturday morning, Mike was the first person I saw. He was fueled by very little sleep. He had a gig the night before and his dog got sick at 2am. Thing about Mike is, you would have never guessed it. He was as warm, focused, and as professional as ever.
Mike Murphy created a fun and comfortable environment. The room had so much positive flexibility. Mike somehow made it possible to navigate from sensitive speeches of gratitude to rallying a large crowd of all ages to line up for the walk, to an unplanned bagpipe performance, to a heartfelt video about our cause, with sporadic requests throughout.
What blows me away the most goes beyond his super early Saturday start time. The board planned on the vendors, bouncy house, games and band to bring the majority of the crowd outdoors on this day, relieving Mike from volunteering after the walk, before noon. A hot sun with lack of shade brought our supporters indoors to air conditioning, food, tricky tray, raffle, bar, and of course a great DJ. Mike Murphy worked from before 8am to after 3pm. He would not accept payment. He worked hard from the heart.
