***Timeless raises her hand steady and proud and asks "What do I know??" hehehe

Currently I am working with a couple other volunteers to get the Walk-a-thon going in Indianapolis. I am the Indiana Group Coordinator but have adopted Illinois and Kentucky. I didn't want to leave you guys out of the loop.

We are doing a walk in Indianapolis along the canals downtown and we are still currently in process of looking for sponsors or donations for the silent auction. My brother and sister in law are HUGE Chicago Cubs fans, hint hint. LOL

I will be sending out invitations for the Walk-a-thon as soon as I receive the official WAT brochure. But the basic information is that the walk is $15.00 for pre-registration (which ends March 31) and then $20 "at the door" so to speak. We are asking anyone that "cannot" walk to consider pre-registering anyway to obtain your commemorative t-shirt from this years WAT.

I am also toying with the idea of a "regional" newsletter to possibly come out quarterly. If I can swing it, I would like to include an article from the local HELLPS members and volunteers to show how we are accomplishing the tasks at hand.

What do you think??

I would be interested in attending meetings in Illinois. I live about an hour north of Chicago. Unfortunately I don't have time to help with planning right now.

Wow Michelle, I hope you are doing well. A stroke is nothing fun to experience or try to battle your way back from as I am sure you know first hand. My family seems to either suffer a stroke or heart attack but something cardiovascular indeed.

Rose Brandolino is the new Illinois State Chapter Coordiantor and she is getting organized to host Illinois's first meeting. I will email her to check the website and see how she's doing. I will pass along your willingness to help and see what she has up her sleeve. I am sure she will need all the help she can get and luckily Illinois has had a huge response as far as those interested in meeting and helping.

I have heard from some of you that I have on my email list and I am happy to receive a couple responses. I believe in having even just a couple names of willing people we can start planning our first meeting. If you have not heard from me via email and you live in Illinois, please either email me from this forum or post to this forum and I will make sure to include you in future events! I am excited to get things going for you in your state!

Be talking to you soon!
