We are so excited that you will be joining us for the walk this Saturday. I wanted to get some details to you in preparation for the walk. Please note, the walk start time has been moved from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. this year!
If you walked with us last year, please wear your "Double Trouble" navy walk t-shirts. For those of you who are new this year, I have a few extra shirts, hopefully they will work!
We will be meeting in front of the Oakley store on the first level (N107). Oakley is on the North side of the mall, near Nordstroms. We will do a group photo at 8:15 am, and will begin the walk at 8:30 am. (The boys have to meet with the JDRF staff at 8:00 a.m., we will be there as close to 8:15 as possible!) Come as early as you would like and take a walk around to the different vendors. There are usually granola bars, bananas, water, etc. that they hand out to people. A good place to stop by is the vendor area in front of Sears.
The boys were asked to be letter holders at the end-of-walk celebration. We will walk until 9:15 and then will head over to the rotunda. The boys need to be there by 9:20 to get ready. After the celebration, we will go have bagels, fruit, yogurt, etc. We will try to eat at the same place as last year - which was one level just below the south food court where there are tables and chairs for over-flow food court seating. These areas are first come, first serve, so we will see where we end up! Hopefully we will all be able to stick together while we are walking, but it can be difficult to do so since there are so many people. If you get seperated from us, I will have my cell with me: 952-334-4436. Phil's cell: is 612-685-3852.
I have a total of 14 wristbands and will be handing them out to kids first, and then on to adults if we have any left.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support and see you on Walk day!
Here are some event detals from JDRF:
Important Walk Day Info to share with your team:
**NEW LATER START TIME** The Walk will begin at 8:30 and we walk for an hour. Remember it's more of a shuffle than a walk!
For the first time, we will be able to accept credit card donations on Walk day. You can make a donation at the JDRF Store, located in the rotunda! Encourage walkers who haven't already made a donation, to do so on Walk day.
If you have any questions, or need assistance please contact the JDRF office at 952-851-0770 or email@example.com.
We appreciate your hard work and dedication to JDRF's mission...to find a cure for type one diabetes. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!
