A Walk of 10,000 Steps

by Donna Brown

The Walk of 10,000 Steps is the theme for the 2016 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk.  It will take place during the Land of 10,000 Dreams conference and convention this summer in Minneapolis, Minn. This year’s walk route will originate right in the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, home of the ACB conference and convention, and have participants weaving through various skywalks throughout the downtown area. While the length of the walk is slightly less than a mile, participants have the opportunity to walk the route more than once. If you want your pedometer or health app to register 10,000 steps, you would have to walk our route about 4 times.
Are you dreaming about how you can be a part of our 2016 Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk? Your dream can come true by registering for the walk by clicking on the Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk link on the ACB web site, or by calling the Minnesota office at (612) 332-3242.
Affiliates, both state and special-interest, are encouraged to form teams. Once again this year, up to 50% of the money teams receive in donations can be designated to go back to the affiliate.  Let’s see how many teams can raise $10,000. Florida did it last year!
By the time you read this article, the walk web site will be live, so don’t waste any time.  Register for the walk, sign up your team, and begin seeking donations. Don’t hesitate to ask all of your friends, co-workers, and relatives.
Walk participants raised more than $52,000 last year. Let’s see if we can raise 10 times $10,000 for ACB and your affiliate in 2016!
