2012 Hemophilia Walk Kickoff Celebration
Saturday, August 11, 2012 – 11am-5pm
North Carolina Zoo
We had our Walk Kickoff this year on August 11th at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, North Carolina. There were 116 people in attendance and 16 teams represented! We had plenty of food, fun, and learned some fundraising tips. The children had crafts they worked on as well as an animal encounter with two zoo employees. During that time, the team leaders were busy learning how to fundraise using social media and other outlets. After lunch and learning, the families spent the afternoon in the Zoo!
Crystal Hoernlein, our 2012 Walk Chair, shared with the group how she was able to raise so much money for the Walk last year. She is leading by example and holding an even bigger event this September. We were also fortunate enough to have Brey Curtis and Robb Balch with us from Baxter, the National Presenting Sponsor. Brey shared some motivational words with the group along with Tracey Sloop, who is representing Grifols, the Local Presenting Sponsor.
Team M.L.D. lead by Ashley Davis and her family won the Kickoff grand prize of an iPod for the team who raised the most money by the Kickoff Event! Team M.L.D. had raised $2,200.00 by August 11th! We hope this will encourage other teams to step up to the plate. There are plenty more chances to win big prizes up until the Walk! Thank you to all who attended, and if you could not attend, please email me and I can be sure to get you any information you may need to get your team motivated!
Thanks for your support!
