Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk 2016
It's that time to start fundraising for the annual Making Strides event.

We will iron out details to order shirts for those that need them here shortly. If anyone wants to volunteer to take that on feel free to do so.

Here is our team page. Go sign up and join our team on there and start raising some money. You can share the page on FB and get people to donate there as well.

We won't be here this year. Will donate!
Be sure you log on and sign up for our team. This will be here before you know it. Hoping we have a good turn out like usual.

So who needs pink save boobies shirts? I will assist with getting an order in for those that want stuff. I will require prepayment for any item being ordered. I'll try to figure out a drop dead date for ordering.
I will wrangle the shirt order, I assume last years order was from Trademark?
Yes. Thanks for doing it. So folks if you need gear for this you better post up and get money in. I don't know what the drop dead date for ordering would be
I could be wrong, but I think we have some left over from a purchase last year that got donated.
Can anyone verify that? Before I blast out order details.
Email I got.
HI Team Captains!

Thank you to those who were able to come to our team captain meeting last night. I'm attaching the agenda and a few other things that you need to know about!

*Event T-Shirts: Making Strides has event t-shirts that you can order and personalize for your team. I'm attaching the information & website for you to look at. The neat thing about this is you can order the shirts and upload graphics, team names, logos, etc. and order them for your team. There is a pricing sheet available too. There are t-shirts and sweatshirts available this year! BUT THE DEADLINE IS SEPT. 2nd SO PLEASE LOOK AT IT SOON!!!

*We will have one more team capt. meeting in September where you can buy PINK gear, Jolly Roger shirts, get raffle tickets that your team can sell, drop off any money that you've raised and want posted to your page, answer questions, & pick up supplies.

*I want to give a SHOUT OUT to the top 5 teams right now on fundraising!!
1. PINK LADIES at $410
3. MARSHA'S TEAM at $175

*Put on your calendar: Friday, September 23 from 5-7 p.m. at Kendall Auto is our Pre-Party!! The team with the most people to check in there will get $250 credited to their team! ALSO, each team is asked to put something in the silent auction there at Kendall. We will close the silent auction at 6:30 and all the money that your silent auction item bring in will be credited to your team!

Remember, if you have a connection with a business and get a corporate sponsor from them you can include that in your team total!!

Please let me know if you have any questions!!

If anyone can and wants to go to this meeting for us let me know. I just realized I can't go.
Let me find out if I can get off work early on the 23rd, Zoe and I would be willing to represent. How about a portable battery charger/starter or emergency roadside kit for silent auction, something every motorist could use? I Will be putting in the t-shirt order today, we have our 12 minimum!
I should be at the one on the 23rd too. We need as many people that can go to go. I can't make the 15th meeting. I'm not sure how important it really is. I haven't went to one yet.
Reminder for next Saturday. If you haven't signed up for our team online be sure to do so. Donate if you can. Ask for donations as well. Hope to see lots of folks there.

Pre Party is the 23rd. Show up if you can.
Update email I got. Im.going to try and find something for the silent auction. Ideas are welcomed.
