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.
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 will have shirts for you at the walk to wear.
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 7:45 a.m. and walk at 8:00 am. 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.
Our team will walk 1-2 laps and then will go have bagels, fruit, yogurt, etc. We will either be at the tables just inside Nickelodeon Universe in the center of the south side of the mall, or will be one level just below the south food court where there are tables and chairs for over-flow food court seating (where we were last year). 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.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support and see you on Walk day!
