While our HA WALK events are reaching new cities year after year, many times families and individuals still cannot attend even the closest event. We started our Virtual WALK program last year and we are pleased to announce that we are launching our 2012 Virtual WALK website! By registering on this website people can create teams or sign up as individuals and fundraise for HA by holding their own small WALK or other event.
We encourage people to hold a small neighborhood WALK around the block or even host a BBQ or other small gathering in place of attending an HA WALK event. By registering on the site participants will receive a personal online fundraising page where they can send emails to friends and families to promote the cause and raise money.
Individuals registered for the Virtual WALK will be eligible for the WALK T-shirt as well as other incentive prizes offered to all WALKs. Once an individual has finished fundraising and completed his or her small event we ask that people contact HA to share their connection to hydrocephalus and describe the walk or activity they held.
Last year we had participants from California, Texas, South Dakota, Virginia, Connecticut, Florida, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, and Maine. If you cannot find a WALK near you, we hope you will join the Virtual WALK community this year! Please contact Jordan at email@example.com or 888-598-3789 ex13 if you have any questions or click here.
