Please join us for MHA’s Annual Walk-a-Thon on Sunday, August 19th. This year’s event will also include a 5K run. The event home base will be Sammy’s Pizza and Pub, 131st and State Line Road, located at the Village of Seville shopping district in Leawood, KS.
Proceeds from the event help support MHA educational seminars, annual advocacy conferences, support groups and summer camp. Summer camp educates children how to better deal with their bleeding disorder and share experiences with others who have a bleeding disorder. Many of these kids have no other camp to attend because of the special medical care that is provided at our Camp.
Whether you are a walker or a runner or just someone who wants to help out, your involvement is crucial to the success of the important MHA fundraising event. We are asking that you put together a team to participate in the walk. Even if you can’t attend, you can still form a team and raise money for MHA. How is a Team formed? That’s the easy part. Become the Team Leader or recruit someone you know. Then using the registration form, ask family, friends, or co-workers to pledge a minimum of $25 towards your team. The goal is to get as many pledges as you can for your team. The Grand Prize for the Individual that raises the most money will win a trip for two to the 2013 NHF Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California. Can you say Disneyland? (A minimum sum of $2,500 must be raised to win the Grand Prize.)
Here are few tips about building a successful team:
Set a Goal – First, set a goal for the number of walkers/runners you plan to recruit for your team. The nice thing…is there is no limit to how many people you can have on your team. The more walkers, the more money raised.
Spread the message – Write letters or send emails or call your family, friends and co-workers asking them for support of your Team.
Challenge others – Ask family, friends and co-workers to start their own Teams. The more Teams, the better the results. Challenge other Teams to see who can raise the most money.
Create your team identity – Create your own Team T-shirt, buttons or hats for your team to wear the day of the event.
So…bring your family and be a part of the 15th Annual MHA Walk/5K Run on Sunday, August 19th at Sammy’s Pizza located in the Village of Seville, Leawood, KS at 131st and State Line Road. The event features a shady, tree lined courses and food and beverages after the event. Again, to register online go to:
