Jenn,

I have decided not to do the walk this year. I feel like I'm running out of time and there is a lot that needs to be done and I'm not even sure where to start. I'm going to do some more research and hopefully have my ducks in a row for next year...or another time.

Thanks,
Misty

Jenn,

Just wanted to throw a few things out there for the walk. If we are doing a "fundraising" walk this is what has to be done:

1. A proposal for the walk in writing.

2. Expectations of Fort Carson and what they may be (or no expectations)

3. Do we want tents, water, trucks, help to set up, etc (part of expectations)

4. Once submitted to Ann (the outreach coordinator) then it has to be reviewed by Legal.

5. Anything we want from Fort Carson, as far as tents, water, set-up, etc is at our expense.

6. Ann suggested Iron Horse Park on Fort Carson. It is a 1 mile track and the trail goes through a park. She said it is the easiest for an event like this. We could go as many laps as we like. It's also not on a road so we wouldn't have to worry about any road closures or police patrol. Everyone would have to be able to get on Fort Carson. (Must have driver's license, proof of insurance, registration)

7. Another option is Turkey Creek Ranch 10 mi. south of Carson on 115. There are picnic areas, playgrounds and restrooms. Not sure what the trail is like there but it is accessible to everyone.

8. Ann also suggested that we contact the Hospital here on Carson to see if we can get some support from them. She gave me a "great" contact there to call.

So, that's what I have so far. Can't wait to make some plans :):):)

I'll be emailing you shortly so we can set up a time and place, for anyone interested in helping out, to meet/greet and brainstorm!

Ladies, please be careful about posting your personal info (emails and phone numbers): anything on this site is visible to the entire web and I'd hate for you to be swamped with spam or worse.

Jenn,

I sent you an email yesterday but haven't heard back. Not sure how often you check this or if the email even reached you. Looking forward to planning the walk!

Jenn!

I got the "go ahead" on the walk!! I am going to plan for May 16th. I am in the process of filling out the form for the "friends and "family" walk. The walk will be held here on Fort Carson. Ok...where to begin??? Can we talk sometime?

Jenn,

I'm calling tomorrow to speak with a lady that will either give me permission or direct me to the person that will give me permission to host the walk on post.

I am excited about it! If I'm not allowed to do it on post, I live right across the street from Cheyenne Mountain park. There are awesome hiking trails there and I'm sure I can work something out with them. I'll be in touch once I get the approval.

Thank you!
