This is my first year planning a walk and I just want to bounce some ideas off of others.
I know that the sponsorship levels aren't due for a few more weeks, but I was just interested in what other sites are doing. I saw the 2 examples from the CD, but can't make up my mind.
As hard as it is, I am taking Tom and Kathy's advise to heart. KEEP IT SIMPLE. Man, that is hard. Dallas-Ft.Worth is such a large area, but I have decided to pick a location closer to me (Denton). Does that sound horrible? I am so afraid of people flaking out that I don't want to be so far away that it isn't successful because I am stretched too thin. Then next year after having a successful WAT move it more towards town. Maybe in 5 years, we will be in downtown Dallas!
I have good connections with both of the hospitals in Denton. Plus I know the HR director of another hospital group in Dallas and my mom is friend's with a NICU nurse at a children's hospital in Dallas. So I think I can for sure get their support.
I loved John's idea last night of having the brochures on the pizza boxes.
And the Kiwanis club. Don't forget the Lions, KC, Elks, American Legion, VFW and Masons. Local Boy Scout troops are always looking for volunteer hours too.
