Still don't have a definite for the WAT location. I've put a call in to a couple places and hope to hear back today provided I can stay off the computer long enough. LOL (One phone line)
I have the idea of doing a "memorial/honoring" walking path much like when you read the names off at the November event. They could read the signs of the names of children who have been affected by a PE Pregnancy, read statistics and names of sponsors along the way.
I have put a phone call into the girl scouts office downtown to possibly create a badge earning community service project for them to help serve water, cookies, etc at a few stations along the walking path. I have a few baby afghans for raffle/give away items depending on park rules. I need help getting sponsors (hospitals, baby stores, sell it again shops?, OB offices, etc) to help with funding for shirts and such.
I kind of had a thought, what if we could have the shirts a different color than white, like bright pink and bright/bold blue? Or Tie Dye the shirts to match if you have had more than one pregnancy affected by PE. (Which would mean I would need two pink swirls and two blue, LOL) Of course I have never tie dyed anything before in my life so that would be an experience and I'd probably go through a few shirts to get my pattern right. lol
Going to investigate local craft stores for ideas on how to put together the memory/honor signs for the walking path. Granted I'm just going to get ideas at this point because I need for the park to confirm if I can "aerate" their walkway. LOL But I am hoping to find small stakes/wires to put in the soil and heavy enough signage to stay put should it be a windy day, plus waterproof to deflect rain. I think rain or shine, I'm hosting a walk!
What do you think about GS cookies being offered to walkers? It will help my daughter's troop out and they keep for quite a while, especially if you freeze them. Just trying to think of how many boxes I might need for something like this. Help two causes with one stone? lol
I'm open for more ideas. I want to make this first time out of the stalls a successful run(walk)! lol .. Anyone else open for helping out with the WAT in INDY?
Email me if you can think of something else we can do. I'd like to get a Max and Erma's dinner night going for fundraising purposes. We can use funding for set up, printing, etc. I plan to donate as much as I can from home. I have 1 card table and another small table we can use for registration set up, but we will need more tables I think for drink stations, kids play area, etc. Dollar retail shop coloring books and crayons for the "kids fun table"?
Ciao for now.
