Walkin’ to Success

by Donna Brown

The 2015 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk in Dallas was a smashin’ success!  Approximately 80 convention attendees rose early on Sunday, July 5 to walk the halls of the Sheraton and the Plaza of the Americas for ACB.  Words cannot describe the enthusiasm that filled the air by participants in the room where the walk began and finished. 
Along with the huge turnout of on-site walkers contributing to the success of this year’s event, the enormous number of donations brought in by participants was unreal!  At the time of this writing, walkers have raised just over $54,000 for ACB and its affiliates. 
Thanks to everyone who had a part in making this fund-raising event both fun and successful.  A great big thank-you to Nancy Becker and the rest of the staff in the Minnesota office for their assistance and patience with processing those all-important donations and helping participants set up their individual and team web pages.  Thank you to all of the participants for the time and energy you put into seeking donations.  Finally, thank you to ACB members, affiliates and local chapters who gave generous donations to the walk. 
We’ll be walking in Minnesota in 2016.  I hope you will join us.
