Harrisburg, PA Walk-A-Thon
I still need to do an official count on the number of walkers, but there were around 60. We also got rid of all the t-shirts, except for 2! [:)]
Today, we brought in $8,927.00 that includes silent auction items, donations, and company sponsors. We are expecting a few more checks to come in, and that does not count the fundraisers that were held, and registration money.
The weather was perfect for the walk. In the high 70's and sunny! Earlier in the week, there was a prediction for rain.
Heather gave a great speech on her son, Conner, which was so moving. In fact, I had a hard time getting through the rest of my speech. I was happy at the number of people from the community who came out for the walk. I had two women approach me to help out with next years walk and get involved with the PF in general. We also passed out 80 brochures and all the magnets. The walk was a great success!
Heather--you are wonderful!
