We are getting ramped up for another Autism Awareness Walk. Autism Speaks signature fundraising event, Walk Now for Autism, will take place:
Saturday, September 8th
9 a.m. Registration
10a.m. Walk Begins
It will be held at Jordan Valley Park in downtown Springfield. We are so excited at having such a great venue this year.
Last Friday Jason and I went to the kick-off luncheon at Hickoks Steakhouse (really nice). There were tons more people that last year and already more teams signed up. We haven't even started writing letters or thinking about our fundraisers. Well, I guess I should consider our flop of a yard sell in June that raised a grand total of 168.00. Most of the stuff is still in my garage. Anyway, we have some really good ideas.
Last year we sold Zion's Tribe t-shirts at cost to those who walked. This year we are going to sell them as a fundraiser. If you fund raise for the team you can still get them at cost, but for everyone else they will cost you $20. We have gotten a better quality shirt this year. We have the American Apparal T-shirt and also the American Apparal Girly T-shirt. The Girly-T runs small.
