BUDDY WALK

 

Hello All!!

Well it’s that time of year again, to start forming our Buddy Walk Teams and making this year’s Walk bigger and better than ever! The date has been set for Saturday October 6th, Dansbury Park in East Stroudsburg.  I am going to attach below, all of the downloadable forms for your use in promoting our Walk and helping us to secure sponsors, donors, vendors, registrants etc…and for those that are unable to register online, The more, the merrier. We strongly encourage everyone to utilize the online Kintera website for registration and donations when at all possible,  http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1021493  please feel free to forward this to your contacts, so that they may join and/or donate on your team’s behalf. (please note that some servers, such as in the school district, may block this email so if you are aware of someone that should be receiving this, and they aren’t, it’s because they have given me an undeliverable address. Please help me by making them aware).

BREAKING NEWS——— A little extra incentive to get those teams forming quickly and start your campaigning—— we will be starting an TIERED INCENTIVE AND PRIZE PROGRAM this year!!!!  The more money that your team raises, ….. the greater your PRIZE!!!  There will be more info to follow but in the mean time let’s think about possible prizes such as :GIFT CARDS, IPODS, IPADS, ETC……(.I will follow up with everyone once the actual prize limit structure is determined by the committee). SO…. let’s get this party started!

 

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. My goal this year is to OUTGROW the entire park!! Can we say maybe “stadium” size for next year???

Anyway, all the forms will be attached below, PLEASE keep a stack with you, as you enjoy a beautiful summer with family and friends!!

 

Thank You for ALL you do, Talk soon,

Rob Kiesling
