The 2022 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk is in full swing. As of this writing, 15 affiliate teams have been created. Slightly over $3,000 has been raised. Our goal is to raise at least $90,000 for ACB and its affiliates.
If you haven’t already done so, consider getting in on the fun. For just $25, you can register for the walk and either join or create a team for your favorite affiliate or simply register as an individual walker. All affiliate teams can designate up to 50% of the money their members raise to go back to their affiliate. What a simple and fun way for affiliates to hold a fund-raiser. Over the past few years, some affiliates have raised several thousand dollars from the walk.
The on-site walk will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 2, with the walkers filing into the opening session of the upcoming ACB conference and convention in Omaha. Even if you are unable to attend the convention in person, you can still participate virtually.
You can register online by going to https://secure.qgiv.com/event/a2w/. You may also download and print out the registration form from the walk website, or you may call the Minnesota office at (612) 332-3242 for assistance.
If you have questions about the walk, or need assistance with registration or seeking donations, contact Donna Brown, walk committee chair, by phone at (304) 940-0292, or by email at [email protected].
