2015 Walk Update

I can't believe it's that time of year again!! I've been busy planning our 6th Annual Great Strides Walk for a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis in Wooster!! It will be on Sunday, May 3rd at the pavilion by Ida Sue School. Registration begins at 11am and the walk begins at noon. Hope you can join us!!

So far, I have most of the food and entertainment nailed down...
-Panera Bread Bagels
-Domino's Pizza
-Buehler's fruit
-Ice from Speedway
-Pat Catan's craft table
-Dr. Dave the Science Guy doing balloon animals
-The Cat's Meow character will be there again from 1-2p
-Wooster Fire Truck will be there from 11-12:30
-Samaritan Care Ambulance will be there from 11-2:30

I'm working on getting prizes for the walkers, so if anyone wants to help, that would be AMAZING!!! BIG THANK YOU to Debbie C. for offering to help gather some prizes this year!!! THANK YOU DEBBIE!!!!! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!

Also, I'm working on trying to get sponsors, either individual single rose sponsors of $125, or corporate sponsors(ranges from $125-$10,000). If you know of a business that does this, please let me know and I will contact them. Their business will be represented at the walk on a big sign!

If anyone has any other great ideas for us to add to our walk this year, please let me know! I'm always trying to think of new creative things to make it more fun for everyone!! :)

Don't forget to register to walk so I know how much food to get!! It's quick and easy to register and saves time the day of the walk! Here is the link to register for our 2015 walk, just click on the team that you want to register under(my team is A Cure 4 Lil' Chris) or click Join A Team... http://fightcf.cff.org/site/TR/GreatStrides/104_Northern_Ohio_Cleveland?fr_id=3488&pg=entry

Our walk so far has raised $5,630 and the goal is $35,000, so please register and start fundraising today!!! Ask 10 friends and family for a $10 donation, and you will get a FREE Great Strides T-shirt at the walk for raising $100!! :)

We are so close to a CURE and the only way we will get there is by raising the MUCH NEEDED money to help in the research!! Please, join us or donate!!! Get creative in your fundraising! My kids classes are going to do "Change for CF" where they bring in loose change for a month! :)

We are working on getting the commercial for the walk done. BIG THANKS TO MCTV FOR ALWAYS BEING SO KIND TO PLAY IT THE MONTH BEFORE OUR WALK IN ANY OPEN SPOT THEY HAVE!!! THEY ARE THE BEST!!!! :) I'll post it when it's all done.

Thanks, I'll keep you updated!!
