UPDATES AND LAST MINUTE INFO


Date: 10-18-09
Place: Premium Outlet Mall - Aurora IL
Time: Registration opens at 7:30 AM - I suggest that anyone with money to hand in get to the walk early and get that done. I plan on arriving at 7:00 AM.
The Mall bathrooms are open for us....there are bathrooms near the Registration area...most of us who have done this before know where the bathrooms are so we can direct you. Also, the map of the walking route is up on the event Main Page.

After handing in your $$, please make sure to see me as I will give you your armband and probably several armbands for the folks we are walking to Honor and In Memory to put on. I need to record whose armbands you will be wearing and take your photos with the armband for the "Thank You" mailers. I did a crummy job of this last year, this year I will be more prepared.

At around 8:15 AM we will head to the Start Line for a team photo.

Opening remarks start at 8:30 AM - I would like us to be done with the photo by then as we tend to distract from what is going on with opening remarks when we come "strolling through" Smile

The walk steps off at 9:00 AM...if at all possible...I would like us to try to stay together this time....lol...we tend to be all over the place...and...we are generally a little slower than most...that is ok..


We now return you to our regularly scheduled thread:

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a non competitive 5K to raise funds and awarness during October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For the past month our troops have been busy fundraising via 2 small "Donation Stations" and from their friends, families, and co-workers.

This team of rather unsual Breast Cancer walkers raised an astonishing $4,016.00 (at last count). Part of the money raised was on pink armbands that carried the name of someone who was either "honored" (still alive and battling cancer) or "remembered" (someone lost to cancer). Each of the team members had an armband with their name and logos of the Midwest Garrison and Nar Shaddaa Base on one arm and wore armbands for the armbands of the others who we were honoring and remembering.

Thanks to our participants who absolutely went above and beyond. It isn't easy hauling your behind out of bed at 6:00 AM (and earlier) on a Sunday morning when the temperatures outside are at about the freezing mark.

My hats off to all of you (in no particular order):

Rich Markle SL 1781
Mark Van Slyke TB 8063 – Rebel Fleet Trooper
Cheryl Whitaker TB/TI 3127
Neil G Auer TK 3446
