It’s time to start gearing up for the 2023 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk. Can you believe that this is the 15th year for this great event? Over $500,000 has been raised for ACB and its affiliates.
There are several new flairs to this year’s Walk. First, the Walk committee offered the ACB membership the opportunity to create a theme. As always, ACB members came through. Twenty-four different members submitted theme ideas. The Walk committee selected “Stepping Out With ACB” as this year’s theme. It was submitted by Jacque Proctor from West Virginia. She will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.
Wait, that’s not all of the flairs and opportunities to win gift cards. ACB is 62 years old this year. Therefore, our goal is to raise at least $62,000 for ACB and its affiliates. Other ways to win a gift card are as follows: the 62nd person to register for the Walk; the first team to reach the $6,200 mark in donations; and the first person to receive 62 donations.
You can now register for the Walk, create or join a team, or make a donation by visiting https://secure.qgiv.com/event/acbwalk2023/team/921259/.
If you need assistance with registering or making a donation, call the Minnesota office at (612) 332-3242. As in previous years, affiliate and committee teams can designate up to 50% of the monies they receive from donations to go back to their treasuries.
You can participate in the Walk even if you are unable to attend the ACB convention in person. The on-site Walk event will take place at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 1. The Walk will end with participants filing into the opening general session.
For questions about the Walk, contact Walk committee chair Donna Brown by phone at (304) 940-0292, or by email at [email protected]. So lace up your shoes and join us in Stepping Out With ACB!
