Hello Kentucky PF Members,
Indiana, for your members this might be a duplication of information I have already passed along but I am doing this for the benefit of the Illinois and Kentucky members.
Kentucky, you currently do not have a Group Coordinator so I am filling in for you in that respect. I would like to get a WAT organized in your actual state. The PF has a national date of May 13th set up for the Walk-a-thons. I am going to be doing a WAT(Walk-a-thon) here in Indianapolis along the canal downtown, but maybe we could organize one for your state on a different weekend. Any volunteers willing to help? I can help start the process, give ideas, help with funding efforts between members and the Foundation, and attend the WAT to help set up, walk, and tear down. What do you think?
Indianapolis Walk-A-Thon - Tentatively we are scheduled to have our WAT on May 13th (Sat) at the along the White River State Park canal in downtown Indianapolis. We will have a pre-registration sign up of $15.00 to include a t-shirt and then $20.00 registration at the door. I am looking to get a list of all babies, moms, families affected by PE to serve as a memorium/honor listed on signs along the path. I will also have signs with statistics and sponsors to add interest to our walking path. We need help to earn funds for the WAT's actual location rental of $250.00. I have materials I can put in a garage sale to help earn funds. Anyone interested can help me with organizing a fund raising event with a local restaurant where a certain percentage of the nights profits go towards the Foundation. Those funds can be earmarked for research as well as administrative help to getting our WAT fundraising event off the ground. This will be the first WAT for Indianapolis! ALL of you are welcome to come and attend. I will keep you informed as to details and when we have open registration!
Are there any of you interested in coming to Indiana for the Walk-a-thon or possibly the Annual Conference if we host both here? We are trying to get the word out so you have time to plan.
If you have any questions, comments, or helpful ideas, please email me at this address. I am open to more ideas.
