3rd Annual Wayne Walkathon

Message From Co-Chairs: Kathryn & Gerry Voit

Please join us in supporting the Greater Philadelphia Walk to D'Feet ALStm. We expect over 1,500 walkers to participate in a three-mile walk at the Valley Forge Military Academy. We are involved because Kathryn has ALS, we are Board Members, and we co-chair the Walk Committee.

Last yearís event, our second in the Philadelphia area, raised almost $200,000 on a crisp and sunny day. Part of our success was due to generous help from people like you. This year our goal is to raise over $225,000 for research and patient services. The ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter, serves persons with ALS, and their caregivers, who live in the Eastern half of Pennsylvania, Central and Southern New Jersey and Delaware.

Once again we are planning a spirited day. As with last year, we are expecting to be sent off on the Walk by a trumpet fanfare, the VFMA band, and a mounted equestrian team. There will be lots of activities on the parade grounds before and after the Walk.  Please consider becoming a sponsor, walker, or donor this year. Ask others you know to help as well.  Walkers raising $75 or more will receive a Walk to D'Feet ALS t-shirt.

Through this event, our goals are to give hope through improved awareness of ALS and raising much-needed funds for local patients, services, and programs, as well as nationally directed research

 

Info on Wayne Walk to D'feet ALS Teams:
Walk teams consist of two or more family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors.   All routes are wheelchair and stroller accessible.  Teams are a great way for families, friends and co-workers to show a person with ALS that they are not alone. Don't forget to ask your company if they will support your effort with matching funds. 

Walkers will receive a ďWalkerís envelopeĒ which you can bring with you on the day of the Walk to register with your team captain.  If you wish to create a team or be a team captain, contact Allison Walker at 215-643-5434 or allison@alsphiladelphia.org

You will be amazed by the amount of support people will give you - most walkers easily raise $150 or more. Set your personal fundraising goal and let your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers take the lead in The ALS Association's Walk to D'Feet ALS.

 

Info on KATHRYNíS KREW:
Be on KATHRYNíS KREW and wear our teamís t-shirt! (Purchase at Walk for $5.00.)  KATHRYNíS KREW will adopt anyone with a desire to Walk and/or raise money to help those affected by ALS.  To find out more, register with our team captain, Tim Voit at tim@voit.org.  Prior to the walk, you may also mail KATHRYNíS KREW donations directly to Tim at: 120 Cedar Street, Jenkintown, PA 19046.
