Great Strides 2011 – the walk is this weekend!

Great Strides 2011 - Team Kaite
Great Strides 2011 - Team Katie


After much fundraising, the walk has finally arrived! This Sunday is Great Strides and here are the logistics for this Sunday:

Date/Time to meet: 9am on Sunday May 29
Location: front entrance of Safari Niagara in Stevensville (link to Google map w/ directions)
For those with a paper map or GPS system, here’s the address:
2821 Stevensville Road
Stevensville, Ontario
L0S 1S0

On walk day, make sure you bring:
 * your “manage online donations” and “manage cash and cheque donations” printouts;
 * your Great Strides t-shirt;
 * dress for the weather – the walk will proceed rain or shine;

Note: if you have received a t-shirt this year, wear it (Julie should have been in touch with you if a t-shirt is available for you). If you didn’t register in time this year and have a t-shirt from last year, please wear it. And, if you don’t have a t-shirt at all, wear a red t-shirt if you have one. (and, let’s make sure you get registered early next year so that you are included in the t-shirt order)

Here’s the ballpark agenda for the day:
9am: Assemble as a team;
 – get a team picture – here’s last year’s picture;
 – submit your paperwork at the registration desk (each walker/family needs to register at the registration desk);
9:30am: Go our separate ways and enjoy the walk through the park;
11:30am: Meet as a team in the bandshell area (it’ll be marked) to eat lunch
 – Last year, complimentary hot dogs & pop were provided;
 – Bring your own drinks & snacks;
 – For the kids: enjoy the bouncy castles, clown, balloon animals and face painting;
1pm: Awards ceremony – top fundraisers get prizes!
 – stick around for this – in previous years, many Team Katie fundraisers received really nice prizes;

To do in advance:

  1. If possible, keep track of your cash and cheque donations online so that this will go towards our Team Katie grand total (Click here to log in, then click on “Fundraising” at the top of the page. Under your fundraising summary (middle of the page) click on the “Manage Cash & Cheques” and follow the instructions);
  2. Print out your “manage online donations” and “manage cash and cheque donations” and bring them with you on walk day along with any cash & cheques that you have collected;
  3. Mark your submissions clearly with “Team Katie” to make sure they are reflected in our team’s total!
