We recently held two VisionWalk Kick Off events to jumpstart our fundraising for the 2013 Eastern Michigan VisionWalk. We had a lot of fun, shared great fundraising and team ideas and handed out brand new 2013 VisionWalk materials. I’m sorry you couldn’t join us, but I am sending you some supplies to get you set up for this year.
At the Kick Off events, we announced that the Eastern Michigan VisionWalk has raised $400,960 since it began five years ago in 2008. If we raise $99,040 for this year’s VisionVVaik, we will have raised half a million dollars for research! We hope you will do all that you can to help us achieve this amazing milestone.
You can collect donations through sponsorships, letters, emails, and fundraising events. Enclosed, you will find a sponsorship form and a fundraising idea sheet to help you get the ball rolling. Give me a call and we can work together on a plan for your team!
Our 2013 VisionWalk materials are hot off the presses and are available for you now. I have also included a VisionWalk Flyer and three VisionWalk brochures to help build your team and spread the word about VisionWalk. You can keep flyers with you and post them at coffee shops, doctors’ offices, and other local businesses as you are out and about. We also have VisionWalk posters, letterhead, envelopes, POP eyes, stickers, tattoos, FEB info sheets and sponsor folders available upon request. Contact me if you would like to receive any additional materials.
I look forward to working closely with you to help you build your team and raise money to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for retinal degenerative diseases. The walk is just weeks away, and I can’t wait to see you there on Saturday, May 11 at Kensington Metropark — Maple Beach. We are so glad to have you as a part of our VisionWalk.
VisionWalk, A CURE IS IN SIGHT
