CAF's 7th Annual Care Walk- May 7, 2017
Care Walk is the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation’s annual fundraising event and opportunity to bring together the thalassemia community and its supporters around the country. Funds raised support medical research to fight thalassemia, a genetic blood disorder, as well as patient support services for thalassemia patients across the country.
Care Walk is unique because it offers you flexibility: you may participate in an existing Walk or you may start your own Walk. You determine what your Care Walk route will be and who is involved. Some walks take place around a lake or park and involve hundreds of people, and others take place in more intimate locations like neighborhoods with individual families. It is completely up to you! The national Care Walk date is May 7, 2017, but some walks will be scheduled on a different date because of weather, etc. Take a look at our "Locations" link to the right to see if there is an existing walk in your area!
To join a walk or create your own, click on the red "Become a Fundraiser" button at the top right of the page. You will be prompted to fill out a quick one-page form to create your very own Care Walk fundraising webpage. You will be able to join an existing team, create your own team, or participate as an individual.
Care Walk T-shirt: You will be required to pay a $20 registration fee for a Care Walk t-shirt. You will be able to pick up your shirt from your team captain at the walk location. If you are not registered as a member of a team, your shirt will be mailed to you. Register by March 31st to receive a t-shirt!
So after you create your page– what next? It’s time to let your friends, families, workers, colleagues and everyone else know that YOU are Care Walking for thalassemia! We request that registrants set $100 as the minimum amount that they seek to raise.
Patient Prize!! All patients who raise $500 will be entered into a drawing for complimentary housing at our Patient Family Conference in Hyattsville, MD this July!
If you have any questions, don't be shy! Contact Mary by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be happy to walk you through registration and even help you plan your Care Walk!
