Are you ready to start gearing up for the 2019 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk? “100K Photo Finish” is this year’s Walk theme. The Photo Finish is in line with the overall convention theme of Picture the Future. What does the 100K part represent? Yes, you guessed it! Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 for ACB and its affiliates this year, and with your help, we can do it.
Thank you to everyone who helped, in any way, make the 2018 Walk a success. We raised more than $93,000.
Once again, affiliate teams can designate up to 50% of their donation amount to go back to their affiliate. Last year, the Florida Hurricanes raised well over $25,000, which meant their affiliate received over $12,500. That is a nice chunk of change for an affiliate.
During the leadership meetings in Alexandria, Va., at the end of February, you will be able to sign up teams and register for the Walk. A special treat will be given to each person who registers for the Walk during that time.
So start thinking about how you can get involved in this year’s Walk, even if you are not coming to Rochester. You have the option of registering as an on-site or virtual walker, and/or making a donation. As a virtual walker, you can do your walking at any time and in any location.
Stay tuned for information about how to sign up for the Walk. Be creative with your involvement and help us reach the finish line of $100,000.
