I am trying to get a little more organized in dealing with the Milestones Walk November 15th here in Charlotte.
First of all, it is a very good cause to support and we would appreciate any donation, no matter how small. There is a lot of literature on the CureSearch site that I would like to share, but I don’t want to inundate your inboxes. There are very few “cancer” charities that support pediatric cancer research because of the small number of children affected each year. Drug companies do not spend much money researching new drugs for cancer kids either because of the small number of patients who need them. That is why we are walking to raise money for CureSearch.
Second, I appreciate all those who have already donated and who have joined our team. I am planning to have team t-shirts made, and in order to do so, I need to know about how many people will be needing t-shirts. So if you are planning to join the team but have not had time yet, please join today or at least shoot me an email (at firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know that you plan to participate.
Third, we are still hoping to do some sort of function after the walk, but it may just be a gathering with some refreshments to thank our team somewhere in the park. I was originally envisioning this as a goodbye to many folks in Charlotte as we make the move to Quantico. Now it is looking more like we will move after the holidays, so we don’t need a goodbye party just yet.
And finally, depending on how many people join the team, we may actually see if we can get corporate sponsors who would have their name or logo on the t-shirt. If you know anyone who might be interested in sponsoring us (probably with a minimum donation of around $500 to get on the shirt), please let me know.
You can also just go to the main page for the Charlotte walk at http://host.curesearch.org/site/TR/Walk/General?fr_id=1160&pg=entry
And then click on Join a Team on the lefthand column. Enter team name Milestones for Maddie, and then once you have clicked on our team, follow the steps to register to join our team.
Thanks so much!
