Summer has arrived, and the annual ACB conference and convention is weeks away. Conference pre-registration is closed, but you can still participate in this year’s Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk, get moving together with ACB, and raise money for an affiliate of your choice or ACB at large. For $25, you can sign up as an individual walker, join an existing team, or create a team. Register by visiting www.acb.org and activating the ACB Walk link, or if you prefer, call the Minneapolis office at (612) 332-3242 for assistance or to request a paper registration form. Once registered, you will receive an email with your personal page. Send it to family, friends, co-workers, or share on social media, and encourage your network to support you and the work of the American Council of the Blind. If you have questions about the walk or registration, contact walk committee chair Donna Brown by email, [email protected], or call (304) 940-0292.
Walk festivities will kick off prior to the opening session Sunday, July 18, as part of ACB’s Get Up and Get Moving campaign and conference wellness track, but the fun and donations don’t end then. We encourage donations before or during the walk, but donations will be accepted until August 1. This year’s goal is $95,000. So, what are you waiting for? Get moving, and together, let’s raise funds and support affiliates and ACB!
