Greetings to all absorbing the contents of this document.

OUR 2ND ANNUAL  STAY AT HOME WALK HAS BEEN SCHEDULED.  We are

reaching out to the community for Teams and Team Leaders to take on a

greater role in the operation of the facility by holding a series of mini

walks.  These walks can be done on a schedule worked out by the Team

Leader and its members. 

STAY-AT-HOME Walks start  on June 1 and  complete by July 11, 2016.  A

celebration or social will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at the Gary

Career Center located at 1800 East 35th Avenue, Gary, Indiana.  The Registration fee is $15.00 for each walker.   In addition each walker is asked to solicit sponsors for his/her walking activities. Our goal for this venture is $25, 000.  We desperately need 50 Team Leaders to commit to $500.00 for your team. EXAMPLE:  If your team has ten members that pays a $15.00 Registration Fee and get donors to sponsor their walk, $500.00 over the six week period is possible.
