ANNOUNCING…..the Inaugural Chippewa Falls Great Steps 4NFTM Walk hosted by Alex & Cora of Todays WAXX 104.5! Join us for a great day at Irvine Park at the Main Pavilion with other individuals and families that also strive to find better treatments and a cure for NF. We will start off with a 3 mile walk-take your pick of 2 routes with one being shorter and handicapped accessible. Food and raffles will round out the event, but plan on staying to enjoy the Zoo at this beautiful, historic park. Check-in is at 10 am and the walk starts at 11 am. This community-based event is organized by a local family that is committed to helping other NF families by raising awareness and funds for the neurofibromatosis cause.
Be sure to sign up early to start raising funds for you team. The top team wins a prize and there are prizes for various levels of fund raising. See ”MORE INFO” to the right for more information and everything you need to get started.
Step One – Register
Register as soon as possible for the walk that you want to participate in so that you can start raising funds. By registering you also help us know how many t-shirts, volunteers and how much food to have.
Registration fees are $20 per adult, $12 for kids 4-10 yrs old, and kids 3 and under are free. Registration fees are waived for each person that raises over $100. Day-of registration is $25 per person. T-shirts are provided for pre-registered participants.
Step Two – Form a Team
Forming a team gets your family and friends involved in reaching your NF goal. Create a team name and elect a captain who will be responsible for exchanging information with team members. Encourage others to join you and have fun by creating a “team theme” and have a friendly competition with other teams to be the “top fundraiser”. Prizes are given for best accessories and top fund raising teams.
Step Three – Raise Funds and Awareness
Remember, raising funds also raises awareness! Start early and reach out to friends and family. Ask your coworkers and neighbors to help you reach your goals. Help your teammates in their fundraising efforts. Once you are registered we have materials to help you in your fundraising efforts as well as emails that give great tips. We’ll help you every STEP of the way!
We look forward to seeing you! Enjoy a great day with other individuals and families that also strive to find better treatments and a cure for NF.
