Dear Pittsburgh Walkers,
We’re gearing up for the 6th Annual Walk & Roll for GBS|CIDP in Pittsburgh! All the hard work that goes into planning and organizing this event is well worth it when we all come together each year, but each year it seems my schedule gets a little busier and the time seems to go by a little faster. If you follow our Walk & Roll Facebook page, then you probably have noticed that I’m quite busy planning other classes and events to raise awareness about GBS & CIDP among other things!
I would like to give a big shout out to Jill Prosdocimo for helping me come up with some new, fresh ideas. Jill and her family have been big supporters of our local walk and I am grateful for her help and for encouraging me that a little change is okay. “Thank you, Jill!”
I would also like to thank Shelley Territ for offering to donate cases of water to the Walk. “Thank you, Shelley!”
This year, we’re asking that each team create a themed basket to raffle off at the Walk & Roll on September 15, 2018. Many local businesses and corporations are happy to give in-kind donations – you just have to ask! Some require letters and others have forms to fill out. I would be happy to assist you if you choose to go this route to acquire donations.
I will post some basket ideas to Facebook to get your creative juices flowing! There are MANY ideas out there, but please let us know what basket theme you choose so that we can avoid doubling up. Please email OR post in “Walk & Roll Raffle 2018” event: (1) Name/theme of you basket (2) A list of the contents (3) and a picture of the contents if you can.
You may bring your basket on the day of the event. Please make sure it is raffle ready! Remember that registration opens at 9:00 a.m. and we walk at 10:00 a.m.
Also, if you choose you may bring drinks or a snack for the group. We’ll provide ice/coolers and tables for anything you bring.
If you have any questions about donations or our local walk, please contact me at Kristen.firstname.lastname@example.org or Jessica for questions about registration on the Classy site at Jessica.email@example.com.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on September 15th! Sterling Yoga & Wellness Center AND Hinkledire Entertainment will be returning for their sixth consecutive years with us!! 🙂
