VisionWalk in San Antonio - Join our Skip-A-Long team
Vision Walk

February, 2010

VisionWalk Stationery
 

Hey gang… many of you who know my friend, Norm Slocum, who is now blind.  Last year I volunteered at the VisionWalk to help him.  This year, he cannot do the walk here in San Antonio because he and Peggy are ‘babysitting’ for their daughter while she has her fourth daughter.  So, he asked if I would Co-captain his team, the Skip-A-Long (named by his granddaughter).  If you would consider walking with us, I have the information to sign up below. 

If you cannot walk, there is an opportunity to donate.  Even a $5 donation, that will be awesome.  If you have any problems getting to the website, give me a buzz and I’ll help walk you through it.

The walk is

The second link is to join our team the Skip-A-Long.  I have a second friend, B.F. Rippy, whose position at St. P.J.’s Children's Home I assumed upon his retirement, who is also partially blind and is going to do the walk this year.  B.F. has also given permission to request folks to join in his honor. 

We'd love to have your extended family walk with us.  Our goals are to have the largest team, the oldest walker, the youngest walker and the most fun!!!

If you copy the link below and paste it on the URL line of the web, it will bring up the following screen, select Join a Team

http://www.fightblindness.org/site/TR?fr_id=3010&pg=entry

  

A new screen will appear.  In the 2nd box, type in skip and click on Search for a Team.  The 3rd box will appear below showing the Skip-A-Long team.  Click on Join to the right of the team name.

Complete the screens that follow. 

This year our focus is to have a “show of force” to raise the awareness that there IS help available for those who need it.  Please do not feel compelled to contribute additional yourself.  If you do have others who are willing to support you in the walk, it is wonderful.  If you do not want to deal with trying to raise additional funds, please at least join us in the walk for awareness.  It is a 3.1-mile walk with food, face-painting, balloons, and other fun family things to do afterwards.

Mark your calendar!  The walk goes on rain or shine… I am looking forward to seeing you there!

Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks for your support!
