We’re really gearing up this month for our Walk to End Alzheimer’s across the state beginning in Sterling on August 25, 2012. As the newest member of the Walk Team for the Colorado Chapter, I’m thrilled with all of the teams already registered online and the fundraising that’s been going on for months now. Starting this month we are taping Thank You videos from our President and CEO Linda Mitchell. Each week our top Team and Individual fundraisers will be highlighted so watch for those on YouTube and Facebook. Don’t forget to make your own personal donation to raise your total.
We have also started seeing our Coffee Cozy campaign appear in local independent coffee shops in Ft. Collins, Loveland, Boulder, Denver, Littleton and Aurora. Please check the list and stop by to say thanks while you grab a cup of your favorite brew. Lamar’s Donuts is back with us for a second year with the sale of purple donuts giving a percentage to the Association. Don’t forget to “Go Purple with a Purpose” at work and on Casual Friday encourage your colleagues to make a $5 donation to your team for that privilege. If you have a great new fundraising idea, let us know so we can share it.
Help us be selected for the Subaru “Share the Love” event, where up to $5 million will be donated to chosen charities. Vote for us on Facebook every day from now until August 26. We’ll also have a Walk photo contest starting on Facebook in September so if you are planning a trip this August or early next month, take a picture of you in last year’s Walk shirt and email it to us. We’re looking for the most creative and/or exotic locations our Walk shirt will be traveling to this year.
Good luck with your fundraising and thank you all for your dedication to the cause. The end of Alzheimer’s begins with each one of us and each step we take brings us closer to a cure.
