It is time to register for the 2016 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk. Affiliates, it is time to sign up your teams. And let the race begin to see who can bring in the most money for ACB this year!
You can register and sign up your team right now in one of three ways: call Nancy Becker in the Minneapolis office at (612) 332-3242; go online tohttp://acb.donorpages.com/2016ACBWalk/ and click on the link that says “register and form a team,” or by completing a paper form downloaded from the walk web site, above.
The registration fee is still $25 – that’s one of the few things in life where the price has remained the same for eight years. You may register as an on-site or virtual walker, and once again, team captains will have the opportunity to designate up to 50% of the donations they receive to go back to an affiliate of their choice. One thing that is a little different this year is when you register, you will need to indicate what size T-shirt you want.
The 2016 walk will take place on Sunday, July 3, at 7 a.m. The walk will begin in the conference and convention hotel. We will wind our way through several scenic skywalks, and finish back in the hotel. Once again, on-site walkers will have a chance to win some nice door prizes, and plaques will be awarded to teams and individuals who raise the most money.
I encourage and challenge you to do three things. Register and sign up your team for the walk today. Start seeking donations by contacting all of your friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances either by phone, e-mail, or by just asking in person. Finally, just get excited about the 2016 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk, and help in any way you can to make this the biggest walk ever! Last year we raise over $52,000. Our goal this year is to raise $60,000.
Be a part of what promises to be a history-making event in ACB!
